This unified district presents a symbiosis between the vine and its environment which gives very interesting results in terms of the composition of the grapes, as the soils have a clear natural aptitude for hosting the vine. The climate in this location further complements the vines positive interaction. The soils generate wines with a good structure and an fascinating aroma profile. Take for example Sangiovese, which in the Cesena area (complete marl and sandstone formation) gives a very marked fruity aroma, principally cherry, while in the Forli area it gives a well identifiable undergrowth note.
