Featured Wine of the Week: Umberto Cesari Sangiovese DOC Riserva

umberto cesari Sangiovese DOC Riserva 1  Featured Wine of the Week: Umberto Cesari Sangiovese DOC RiservaBy Matt Goldstein

Our featured wine this week is a red Sangiovese from the Tuscany region of Italy, one of our favorite styles.  The Cesari Sangiovese DOC di Romagna Riserva is made with 100% of the Sangiovese grape and aged for 24 months in Slavonian and Italian oak barrels.  This Sangiovese is ready to drink right out off of the shelf but has a 5-7 year aging potential.  Winning a silver medal in Germany in 2007, the Cesari DOC Reserva is available for about $15-17.  Tasting Notes:  The Cesari DOC Riserva is a full bodied red, slightly dry and slightly tart.  A thick and dark red, a bit tannic, this Sangiovese will pair well with meats and aged cheeses.  This is a solid red wine and less expensive than most other Sangiovese reds.
