2016 VINTAGE: STRUCTURE AND LONGEVITY

The harvest is now history, the vines have changed colour, dressing our hills in tawny yellow, and it is time for us to draw up the season’s balance sheet. First of all, we can state that this year’s harvest was without doubt one of the longest in recent years. Kicking off on 5 September with the early-ripeners, such as Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay, it continued with regularity, according to the normal ripening period of each grape variety, to finally conclude on 12 October. That was made possible only by excellent weather conditions throughout the season, with above-average temperatures and very few rains, as well as by constant monitoring of the clusters.

Weather, as always, was the crucial factor, the key to a very felicitous harvest. A mild winter with little rain was followed by abundant rains in the spring, then a mild summer brought significant day-night temperature differentials. These conditions favoured optimal vine growth, so much so that only in late summer did we have to perform a little cluster-thinning, followed later by an equally light leaf-pulling; these operations ensured good canopy-fruit balance and satisfactory exposure of the clusters to the sun, particularly for the red grapes.

Adding additional advantage this year to the favourable weather and to our team’s impressive expertise was the adoption of a now technological instrument, a latest-generation optical sorter that can recognize, with the greatest accuracy, the soundest, ripest berries; this meticulous operation is performed in the least-invasive manner possible, utilizing vibrators and compressed air, so as not to stress the berries. Once the berries have been removed from the stem, they are examined by an optical lens on the basis of shape, colour, and relative ripeness. Only the finest berries, in perfect shape, arrive in the cellar, ready for fermentation.  Thus, this instrument represents the connecting link between the vineyard and the cellar, a second, ultra-efficient selection that follows the primary hand-inspection in the vineyard. The fact that we are one of only six wineries in Italy to make the considerable investment in this machine underscores the commitment that we have always shown in searching for means that will help us ensure absolute quality in our wines while fully respecting nature.

If, however, it is true that nature can be assisted by expertise and preserved by technology, it still remains the primary fashioner of a wine’s personality, underscoring in the case at hand the superb quality of the 2016 vintage. With respect to the white wines, for example, significant day-night temperature differentials favoured preservation of very crisp, fruit-rich aromatics, as well as excellent levels of acidity, guaranteeing fine body and longevity. The reds, on the other hand, will display impressive concentrations of anthocyanins, intense colour, and crisp, fruity aromatics, while tannins and structure will gradually harmonize as the wines matures.

All of the elements are thus in place for an outstanding vintage, and all we have to do now is wait for time to sculpt the unmistakable personalities of our wines.

OVERSEAS AMONG THE EXCELLENCES OF EMILIA ROMAGNA

Within the frame of the First Week of Italian Cuisine in the World, which took place last night at the Osteria della Pace of Eataly in Downtown, New York City, an entire evening has been dedicated to the flavors of Emilia Romagna. For the occasion, the Chefs Igles Corelli, Riccardo Agostini and Alberto Bettini presented typical dishes bond to the tradition of regional cuisine. Our Colle del Re Albana Secco has been  the great protagonist: the chefs presented it matched with a “Soup of the Wood and Appennine Mountains”.

The tribute to our territory will continue until Sunday, November 20. On that day, at Eataly NYC Downtown, you will have the chance to discover all the secrets of one of the typical products par excellence, stuffed pasta.  The aromas and the intensity of our Albana Colle del Re DOCG will meet the unique taste of tortellini and cappelletti to create a perfect union, which will leave to the preset guests an indelible memory of our regional tradition.

LAUNCHING A HARVEST FILLED WITH NEW DEVELOPMENTS

The picking yesterday of the first clusters of Sauvignon Blanc signalled the start of our 2016 harvest. The kick-off came 5 days later than in 2015, but, just as last year, the results look promising indeed. The seasons this year followed each other in a normal rhythm; winter brought no exceptional rain or cold, a mild spring provided just enough water to the soil, and summer was hot without being torrid.

All of this ensured normal growth development to the vines, with all the growth stages occurring regularly and to an optimal degree. What was crucial was our continuous monitoring of the vineyards, thanks to our use of a wide-distribution monitoring system that utilises a GPRS station and a network of wireless transmitters sited in the vine-rows, which can measure and transmit, in real time, some of the most crucial parameters, such as temperature, humidity, leaf moisture, etc. Analysis of that data makes it possible to create and regularly update a phenological profile, documenting the development of vine and crop growth, and to formulate hypotheses about possible pathogen outbreaks. This, in turn, makes it possible to draw up treatment programmes, which would be launched only when necessary.  Finally, expert manual work in the vineyards allowed the vines to concentrate their energy on fewer, but high-quality clusters.

Our commitment to continuous striving for quality is determinative even during the harvest period. Beginning this year, in fact, to supplement our lengthy expertise and understanding we will employ an optical grader, a device that can identify the best berries, after they have been de-stemmed; then, by means of a burst of compressed air, those that are not completely ripe or imperfect are eliminated. This is just one more example of how important it is to partner the use of technology with an approach so rich in tradition and experience as ours.

The excitement and activities that accompany our 2016 harvest will be enriched by one more, this time involving our customers. Beginning in October, they will be able to enjoy quite unique experiences, thanks to a programme designed with just them in mind, the Umberto Cesari Wine Club.  This exclusive club will have as its main objective immersing our customers in all that we do here at the winery, thus giving them the opportunity to enjoy even more personal contact with our winery team, to discover our world, and to get to know and taste our wines in a new and novel way. Among the upcoming activities, which will take place here at the winery, are a picnic in the vineyard, a class given by a professional sommelier on how to deepen one’s wine appreciation, and vertical tastings of some of our most long-lived wines, to be held among the large casks in our ageing cellar.

About us

Company details

Fertile hills, hard work, passionate commitment: the roots of our wines

A BRAND, A LONG ADVENTURE OF DREAMS AND OF PASSION
Umberto Cesari
This is a challenge that Umberto Cesari eagerly took up in the 1960s, with 20 hectares of vineyards right in the very heart of Emilia Romagna. Over the years, he was able to add other vineyards, different grape varieties, and unprecedented, exceptional new wines.  Over all those years, though, one thing remains unchanged: his passion for wine.

VINEYARDS AND VINE-ROWS
680 kilometres of mesmerizing green waves
The hillslope vineyards on the border between Emilia and Romagna are a truly providential spot for growing this area’s native grapes, such as Sangiovese, Albana, Pignoletto, and Trebbiano, as well as a few international varieties, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot.
The vineyards spread out in all directions, but the focus has always remained on the meticulous care given to each:  every hectare of vineyard is cultivated as if it were the only one.

Six separate estates, 170 hectares of vineyards, 18,000 square metres of winecellars and main offices, completely re-structured.
The six estates– Ca’ Grande, Liano, Laurento, Tauleto, Casetta, and Parolino–each boast individual qualities and personalities, comprising the winery’s true treasure.  Our main winery buildings rise above the hills, a complex fully combining innovation and tradition, offering the guest a tasting salon and wine shop.  This is the ideal spot to step into the world of Umberto Cesari and feel at home.
