Producer Note
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
Umberto Cesari is located in eastern Emilia-Romagna, where the vineyards cover eight
‘poderi’ or fields. The estate is protected by the Calanchi Azzuri- the local badlands- a
type of dry terrain where softer sedimentary rocks and clay-rich soils have been
extensively eroded by wind and water. The Calanche Azzuri forms a crown-like structure
of clay based rocks. This combination of clay soils and the mild climate promote ideal
conditions for premium viticulture. The average age of the vines used to produce
‘Moma’ is 15 years and they yield 10,000kg per hectare. Careful canopy management
is undertaken to ensure the optimum amount of sunlight and shade, encouraging the
clusters to reach optimum maturity. The vineyards are cultivated sustainably and the
grapes are hand-harvested.
Winemaking
Each of the grape varieties was vinified separately. Fermentation took place with
selected yeasts at controlled temperatures in vertical stainless steel tanks with a
submerged cap and lasted for 12 to 14 days. The wine was then aged for six months in
30 hectolitre Slavonian oak barrels, followed by a minimum of three months in bottle
prior to release.
