Winemaker Notes

Although Ripasso is not quite as powerful as Amarone, it possesses many of the same qualities. Referred to by manay as a "baby Amarone," it is suitable for more frequent consumption. Full-boded with ripe fruit aromas and fl avors. It is smooth and elegant with a persistent, warm, finish.

Enjoy with the traditional cuisine of the Veneto, particularly fully-flavored risottos made with sausage, mushrooms, or even Amarone.

Cesari, Veneto, Italy
Image of winery
Gerardo Cesari, was a real initiator, when in 1936 founded the company, he became the creator of the soul, which embodying a care for tradition, his successors continue and encourage today, as an expression of distinction with the very same passion. The vineyards situated in the gentle hills in the province of Verona, as S. Pietro in Cariano where 40 company-owned hectars give birth to the Amarone.

Cesari's primary objective is the satisfaction of its customers.With this aim in mind, the company has set itself a number of different objectives:
- to make full use of its experience in selecting grapes and wines to ensure it always offers the best possible product;
- to ensure ongoing, vigilant monitoring of its vineyards;
- to innovate and develop production through the constant modernisation of equipment. Each production stage is constantly monitored by a modern laboratory;
- to avoid wasting natural resources and, through careful tests, to investigate the possible reuse or recycling of energy and materials;
- to provide its customers with products and services that satisfy their expectations in terms of constant unsurpassed quality

A large and diverse wine region in northeastern Italy, the Veneto is home to a vast array of different styles of wine. With no defining regional characteristics, it can be a bit confusing to the general consumer to parse through its many subzones, but the patient wine lover will find many treasures to be discovered here, typically at wallet-friendly prices. Red and white wines are produced here, with more emphasis on the latter, as well as the ultra-popular sparkling wine Prosecco. The region is sheltered from harsh northern European winters by the Alps, which form its northern border, but the climate is still relatively cool, making the Veneto ideal for white wine production.

Much of Italy’s Pinot Grigio hails from the Veneto, where it can range from neutral and inoffensive to crisp and refreshing. Soave, made primarily from the Garganega grape, has a reputation for producing relatively ordinary, bulk wines, but can be very elegant when yields are carefully monitored, with aromas of lemon, almond, and white flowers. Valpolicella is the region’s best-known red wine, with juicy, tart red cherry flavors derived from the Corvina grape. Recioto and Amarone wines made from dried grapes are a regional specialty and can be very intense, heady, and cerebral.

Other Red Blends

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
