One of the finest wine producers from this Region is definitely Umberto Cesari, who started his winery in 1965 with the simple idea of making the best possible wines, using the local grapes: like the Sangiovese di Romagna, used to make Umberto Cesari’s legendary “Tauleto’’ winner of the “Sangiovese Trophy’’ best Sangiovese based wine of the world in 2007.  www.umbertocesari.it   U.Cesari List

Fattoria Mantellassi
The history of this winery is very much linked to the history of a typical wine from the South Eastern region of Tuscany: Morellino, which takes the name after the “darker” colour of the Sangiovese grape variety traditionally grown here. Mantellassi was the first family to bottle the Morellino in 1977 and this beautiful, rich, complex and full bodied Red wine, is definitely their signature product. They also have an interesting production of fresh and mineral white wines, made using the native variety Vermentino.  www.fattoriamantellassi.it    Mantellassi List
