Luenzo 2011, extraordinary olfactory sensations

Eighteen months of aging and three years of aging in bottle for a fragrant and great structure wine.


During the last edition of food & wine in progress at the Stazione Leopolda in Florence I have the pleasure of meeting, Marialuisa Cesani daughter of Vincenzo, the opportunity to taste the Luenzo 2011.

"All our wines are dedicated to the family" - he says Marialuisa Cesani - "our labels are created through acronyms, in this case with my name and that of my father Vincenzo."

Luenzo is born for 90% from Sangiovese grapes and 10% of Colorino, it is among the most representative wines of the company Cesani of San Gimignano, a perfect combination of terroir and tradition.

"Il Luenzo is our best expression of Sangiovese grapes" - he continues Marialuisa - "come from a single vineyard exposed to North-east in Cellole. This year the 2011 has made 18 months of aging in barrique and 3 years of aging in bottle "

On the nose red berries, blackberries and berries with pleasant spicy notes, on the palate it is full and warm with a long tail of tobacco and chocolate.

"Il Luenzo is a wine with great structure" - he continues Marialuisa - "goes very well with our Tuscan cuisine, especially red meats like steak, but also game, especially wild boar."
