Cesari Valpolicella Classico DOC

Cesari’s introduction into the appellation is produced from vineyards scattered throughout the historic Classico area of the Valpolicella appellation. Smooth and dry on the palate, this well-balanced, fruit-forward red offers a fresh bouquet of wild berries with floral undertones.  This blend of native grape varieties is vinified entirely in stainless steel, resting for 6 months prior to bottling.
