Umberto Cesari Sangiovese di Romagna Riserva 2017
For Umberto Cesari, producing good wine is a family tradition with deep roots in this area of Emilia Romagna It is here that Umberto and his wife Giuliana started their company in 1965 by buying 20 hectares of land in the hills. From then on, he has continually expanded and increased the quality of his wines and today the Company extends over an area of 100 hectares divided into distinct vineyards; La Casetta, Parolino, Ca Grande and Laurento, each of which provides the perfect micro-climate for the vines planted. The two wines that have created a great response from the day of release are the Moma wines. The Moma project pays homage to Bologna-born Giorgio Morandi, one of the most important Italian artists of the 20th century. A new label, dedicated to a contemporary artist is chosen by a panel of experts every three years. This year the winner was "Paper Glass" by Elena Valentini.
The grapes are carefully selected and picked at their peak. Fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled vats with punching down of the cap. Aged for 24 months 50Hlbarrels made from Italian and Slovenian oak
The average age of the vines is 15 years old. Yields per hectare are 8,000 kg. Careful canopy management enables the clusters to reach optimum maturity.
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.
Everyday Serving Suggestion
As this wine is full of character and a tannic backbone it would pair with game, roast duck, red meat marinated with spice, and a rack of lamb with mustard. Or try with rich, chocolate desserts
