From the very beginning, Cesari believed strongly in the power of the land, capable of producing extraordinary grapes and excellent wines, on par with the most notable Italian red wines.


Located in Castel San Pietro Terme, among the hills that dominate the landscape of the ancient Via Emilia on the border between Emilia and Romagna, this winery was founded in the early 60’s by Umberto Cesari and his wife Giuliana. As one of the first winemakers in Emilia Romagna to believe in the potential of the Sangiovese grape, Umberto committed himself to this grape and so successfully imparted a productive philosophy that today he has been crowned the Ambasciatore del Sangiovese (“Master of Sangiovese”).

At present, the winery extends over nearly 175 hectares of land divided into 8 estates: Casetta, Parolino, Cà Grande, Laurento, Liano, Tauleto, Miravalle and Claterna. The winery also rents an additional 180 hectares of vineyards in the vicinity. The vineyards spread along the rolling hills that lead towards Tuscany and are protected by a crown of badlands called the Blue Badlands because of the colour that their slopes take on sunny days. Umberto Cesari boasts partnerships with world-class brands such as Ferrari and Lamborghini, both choosing to serve Umberto Cesari wine at important events. The connection of this winery to the world of the arts is very strong. The Umberto Cesari Art Contest started in 2011 with the intention of promoting emerging artists and new talent by offering them the opportunity to propose a new label for the MOMA line of wines, originally marked with a label showcasing the work of Giorgio Morandi, one of the most noteworthy Italian painters of the 20th century.

The Tauleto label (90% Sangiovese Grosso, 10% Bursona Longanesi), one of the winery's most important wines, won the title of Best Sangiovese in the world at the WSC in London in both 2003 and 2007.
