Cesari Amarone 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

Situated in the North-east, stretching between Verona and Venice, Veneto produces the largest volume of DOC wines in Italy. Much of these come from the province of Verona which is famous for both Soave and Valpolicella. Perhaps the greatest wine of the region is the Amarone della Valpolicella, made from semi-dried grapes, giving a wine that is intense, long and rich with a high alcohol content. The region is also becoming well-known for its range of varietal wines, of which Cesari produce some excellent examples.

In its first years of existence, Umberto Cesari set itself a challenge and a dream: to produce the highest quality Sangiovese possible. This has been our goal, our mission since 1967. The accolades that we have received over more than 40 years of winemaking have nourished the conviction that the path we chose was indeed the correct one. Today more than ever we focus all of our resources on bringing that dream into being and to meeting that challenge. Specific values have guided us along that path, the same ones that still determine what we do every day: - Respect for our environment. Our wines are born of the earth, and the chemical and physical qualities of that earth have a significant effect on the quality and character of the wine. For this reason, our winery is extremely careful to preserve the ecology in which we work. - Promotion of our local area. We deeply believe in the quality potential of our local area, and we have labored for more than 40 years to develop that potential and to encourage in Italy and throughout the world a better appreciation of our local winemaking culture and of the wines classic to our area. - Respect for the consumer. Relentless quality analyses of our wines and our total direct control over every step of our wine production enable us to personally guarantee to the consumer the absolute quality of our wines. - Investment in our human resources. We deeply believe that a business’ real dynamism springs from development of its own human capital and from investment in its own future generations. - Technological innovation with respect for tradition. We believe in innovation, but it must never compromise valid winemaking traditions; we thus invest in new technologies that complement our local traditions. - Passion for our work. Without passion, nothing makes sense. Passion in fact gave birth to our winery, Umberto Cesari’s passion for Sangiovese. Passion gives value to our daily life, passion has guided our steps right up to today, and we are determined that that same passion guide us into the future. Read less

Maybe its the food and company I usually have when I am drinking Amarone, but I truly love this style of wine. Big, intense and robust. Cesari Amarone is complex with flavors of fruit that lingers and warms (both mouth and spirit). Most people expect this style to be overly sweet since its made with grapes that have been dried for several months (like raisons) but since they ferment most of the sugar out it is suprisingly dry. Try this wine with pepata di cozze e vongole (mussles and clams in tomato and garlic) or a garganelli with prosciutto and vodka sauce. Mmmm, I'm in heaven.
