"This grippy red shows a rich note of fresh earth supporting flavors of kirsch, date, damson plum preserves and cigar box, with a sublayer evoking the sweet smoke of burning vine clippings. Integrated tannins are lightly chewy toward the finish. Drink now through 2022. 18,350 cases made." (WS)

Winery Notes:
Gerardo Cesari Senior founded the Cesari S.P.A. in 1936 embodying care for tradition. Franco Cesari continues to carry the expression of distinction alongside Gerardo Cesari, his son and Deborah Cesari, his daughter. Together they manage 40 hectares (96 acres) with additional support of small grape growers in the heart of the Valpolicella area in San Pietro in Cariano. Presently, their goals include constant modernization of equipment at their winery in Cavaion Veronese; to avoid wasting natural resources; researching the recycling of energy and materials; maintaining the environment of the vineyards and to employ new techniques while maintaining tradition. Their portfolio focuses on the historic wines ( Amarone, Valpolicella and Soave) while looking forward to the future; blending local grape varietals( Corvina, Rondinella and Garganega) with the international grapes ( Cabernet, Chardonnay and Merlot).
