More info

Umberto Cesari is located in eastern Emilia-Romagna, where the vineyards cover eight ‘poderi’ or fields. The estate is protected by the Calanchi Azzuri - the local badlands - a type of dry terrain where softer sedimentary rocks and clay-rich soils have been extensively eroded by wind and water. The Calanche Azzuri forms a crown-like structure of clay based rocks. This combination of clay soils and the mild climate promote ideal conditions for premium viticulture. The average age of the vines used to produce ‘Moma’ is 15 years and they yield 10,000kg per hectare. Careful canopy management is undertaken to ensure the optimum amount of sunlight and shade, encouraging the clusters to reach optimum maturity. The vineyards are cultivated sustainably and the grapes are hand-harvested.

Each of the grape varieties was vinified separately. Fermentation took place with selected yeasts at controlled temperatures in vertical stainless steel tanks with a submerged cap and lasted for 12 to 14 days. The wine was then aged for six months in 30 hectolitre Slavonian oak barrels, followed by a minimum of three months in bottle prior to release.
