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 Umberto Cesari 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 in Emilia Romagna, Cesari has gained international recognition and has been awarded ‘IWSC Italian Winemaker of the Year’ four times in the last 15 years.
Rounded, intense and persistent bouquet with hints of ripe fruit, spice and vanilla. Smooth and sophisticated with a lingering finish.
Savoury flavours of dark cherries and black stone fruits combine with notes of dried herbs, smoky oak, with a hint of coffee and vanilla in the background. A rounded, full-bodied red wine with a spicy, persistent and lingering aftertaste.
Intense aromas of purple plums from the Sangiovese combine with softness and elegance from the late harvested Cabernet Sauvignon underpinned by sweet herbaceous notes from the Merlot to create a harmonious, smooth and velvety blend with a long finish.
A delicate and harmonious blend, where Trebbiano fuses with Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc to yield a truly unique wine, judiciously balanced, graceful and self confident. Emphatic and lingering with fragrant pear and apple and just the right degree of crisp fruitiness.
