Cesari was founded in 1936. Gerardo Cesari soon became synonymous worldwide with wines from the Verona area. Back in the early Seventies, Cesari Amarone was one of the first to reach all five continents thanks to the enthusiasm and initiative of Franco Cesari, son of the founder Gerardo, whose original vision was to produce a great Amarone, capable of competing with the best Italian and international red wines. And so began the success story of Cesari wines all over the world.
Today, Gerardo Cesari sets itself further targets: to respond to the market by producing unique, elegant, fine, balanced wines, drawing on tradition but using the latest knowledge in vineyard cultivation, using environmentally sustainable growing techniques and offering consumers the guarantees of a certified wine-making process. A constantly evolving firm that still keeps faith with its land and its origins.
The recently built Cavaion Veronese cellar was planned and built bearing in mind the special care required by our wines. We have therefore placed great importance on the wine's "resting" period, believing this phase to be fundamental for its growth and personal character. The large, underground refining room helps keep the level of humidity and temperature naturally constant, ideal for ensuring that our wines age properly. In addition to the refining of the wines in barriques and tonneaux, bottling and the subsequent long resting period also take place in this cellar. The whole drying process, lasting between 4 and 5 months, as well as the pressing, fermentation and a first refining of the wines, takes place in the San Floriano cellar. On entering the cellar, the grapes are carefully checked, after which the drying process begins. A sophisticated installation allows the humidity level and ventilation of the cellars to be carefully controlled, ensuring the grapes remain perfectly healthy.
