Umberto Cesari Liano Sangiovese Cabernet Sauvignon Rubicone 2019

An impressive wine with concentrated flavours of

ProducerNote
For Umberto Cesari, producing good wine in Emilia Romagna is a family tradition. It is
here that Umberto and his wife Giuliana started their company in 1965, when they
bought 20 hectares of land in the hills. Their ambition was to turn Sangiovese into a
great wine, reflecting the typicity of the area. The winery has continually expanded and
today the estate extends over 100 hectares divided into distinct vineyards; La Casetta,
Parolino, Cà Grande and Laurento, each of which provides the perfect micro-climate
for the vines planted. As pioneers of quality, this family-run estate wins numerous of
accolades every year and has been awarded 'IWSC Italian Winemaker of the Year'
four times in the last 15 years. The estate is now in the hands of Umberto’s son,
Gianmaria Cesari, who follows in Umberto's footsteps.
Vineyard
This wine is named after the small and picturesque hamlet 'Liano' on the hills above
Castel San Pietro in Emilia Romagna. The vines have an average age of 15 years are
grown in calcareous and clay soils.
Winemaking
The grapes were destemmed and pressed. Fermentation took place in specially
designed vinification tanks that allow a long and constant maceration on the skins,
where the cap is kept constantly submerged. The wine was then racked off into five
hectolitre Allier tonneaux, where it was aged for a further 18 months. The wine was then
refined in bottle for a further six months prior to release.
TastingNote
A smooth, opulent and elegant wine where the character of Sangiovese and the
fascination of Cabernet Sauvignon combine to yield an intense wine, with scents of
sour black cherry and subtle hints of vanilla and spice.

Sangiovese 70%, Cabernet Sauvignon 30%
