Cesco 1938 is a Superior Romagna Sangiovese and is named after Francesco Piccolo-Brunelli (born in 1938) the father of the current owner of the Piccolo-Brunelli estate.
Cesco 1938 begins its life on the hills close to Predappio, a region that cannot help but generate great wines. The combination of the soils, sun and a favourable climate create a terrain that gives this wine its unique taste and personality.
Cesco 1938 is created using the best Sangiovese grapes from select vineyards on the Piccolo-Brunelli estate. It is a young and flowery wine that expresses the freshness and vibrancy typical of the Sangiovese vine. Following a brief period of maturing in Italian oak barrels, a process that increases the fullness of the flavour and bouquet, it is allowed to refine and develop further in the bottle for over 6 months.
The wine is defined by a vivid ruby red colour that frames the typical bouquet associated with Sangiovese such as wild rose, violet, ripe red berries and cherry. Note also a hint of a slightly roasted and spiced flavour close to vanilla and liquorice on the nose. It has a rounded, long lasting taste with a full to medium body and soft tannins. Cesco 1938 is a fantastic wine that showcases all of the excellent qualities expected from a Sangiovese whilst still expressing a distinct individuality. It provides an excellent accompaniment to roasted or red meat dishes.
Best served at 18 degrees Celsius.
