Natalie's Score: 89/100

Sweet chocolate, mocha and coffee espresso on the nose of this big Italian red wine displays aromas of fleshy black plums on the palate. A muscular wine, right up to the flavour punch on the finish. Umberto Cesari makes finely crafted wines from Sangiovese, a signature Italian red wine.

Sangiovese food pairings: hard cheeses, pasta, Tuscan salami.

Reviews and Ratings

Umberto Cesari Riserva 2014 is a well-priced, medium-bodied and dry Sangiovese from the Emilia-Romagna wine region. Look for ripe plums, dusty cherries, mocha and coffee flavours on the palate on this flavoursome red. The wine was aged for two years in Slovenian and Italian oak barrels. Pair with rich meat and tomato pasta dishes. - Community Wine Reviews

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
