For Umberto Cesari, producing good wine is a family tradition with deep roots in this area of Romagna. It is here that Umberto and his wife Giuliana chose to start their company in 1965 by buying 20 hectares of land in the hills between 200 and 800 metres above sea level which extend from the Via Emilia towards the Apennine Mountains and the border of Tuscany. Since then, he has continually expanded and increased the quality of his wines. Today the Company owns 90 hectares divided into distinct vineyards; La Casetta, Parolino, Cà Grande and Laurento.
Their Sangiovese wines are full-bodied, beautifully textured with hints of chocolate, vanilla, spice and fine tannins on the finish.
Grapes: From a careful selection of the finest Sangiovese grapes from the estate's hillside vineyards.
Winemaking: The grapes are carefully selected and picked at their peak. Fermentation takes places in temperature controlled vats with punching down of the cap.
Ageing: 24 months in 50Hl barrels made of Italian oakColour: Ruby red with a touch of pomegranate.
Serve: At 16C with lasagne, roast red meats, game and mature cheese like Parmigiano Reggiano.
Taste: Produced from only the best clusters of grapes, this wine has an intense cherry aroma with a touch of violets followed by a full, rich flavour with firm tannins.
