Albagna di Romagna 2015, Colle del Re, Umberto Cesari

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.

Note: Albana di Romagna was the first Italian white wine to be granted DOCG status in 1987.

Grapes: From a careful selection of Estate grown Albana grapes from hillside vineyards on the Podere Colle del Re estate.

Soil Clay Training: Double curtain

Winemaking: The grapes are pneumatically soft pressed and the must is fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks.

Colour: Light straw

Serve: At 10-12C as an aperitif or to accompany typical Emilian pasta dishes such as tortellini as well as seafood and fish in sauces.

Taste: A dry, full and well-balanced dry white wine with a smooth and characteristic bouquet.
