The Philosophy of the wines of Cesani
Cesani’s philosophy is based on the knowledge of the raw material, the wise tradition and man’s ability, put into practice by respecting natural times, following the entire production chain: from the cultivation, to the vinification of its own grapes, up to bottling and direct sales. For decades the company has been cultivating its lands according to the dictates of organic agriculture , a certification obtained since 2008, thus preserving the ecosystem and protecting biodiversity.
The company vineyards are located in three different areas, located in the Pancole, San Paolo and Cellole area, very different in identity and characteristics, at an altitude of 300m above sea level, and exposed to the east, with a microclimate that allows their good maturation and bred on land of marine origin, rich in Pliocene deposits, mainly sandy and particularly suitable for the cultivation of Sangiovese and the famous Vernaccia di San Gimignano. If Vernaccia constitutes the top of the range of the house, on the reds front, the wines produced are real crus and are treated and bottled as such.
The winery is located in the Pancole business center and its activity is supervised by Letizia Cesani. The grapes, selected by maturation, variety and plot, are harvested by hand, and then vinified. For white wines and rosé, steel tanks are used, while for the vinification of red steel and cement tanks and according to their characteristics then refined in French oak wood; in fact, however, all the processing is supported by modern control technology.
