Producer: The Umani Ronchi story began in 1957 when Gino Umani Ronchi
established a small farm in the heart of the Verdicchio Classico region. It
was just a few years later that the Bianchi-Bernetti family purchased the
farm and although they retained the original name, they have certainly put
their own indelible stamp on it. With 210 hectares under vine in Castelli
di Jesi, Conero and Abruzzo, and a dedicated winemaking facility in
each of these regions, they have achieved scale whilst still retaining
an unwavering focus on typicity and quality. The result is a range of
wines which highlights both the versatility and the quality potential of the
Marche’s and Abruzzo’s native grape varieties.

Vineyard: The grapes come from an organic vineyard planted at 200 metres above
sea-level with a south-western exposure. The soils are a mix of sand and
clay, with a large number of small stones. The grapes were harvested by
hand.
Winery: The grapes were destemmed and gently pressed into stainless steel
tanks and the must underwent alcoholic fermentation at a temperature
of 26-28°C lasting ten to twelve days. Following alcoholic fermentation,
the wine underwent malolactic fermentation, and a proportion of the wine
was then passed into oak barrels for a short period of maturation.
Taste: Plentiful fresh red berries lead onto pleasing herbal flavours and subtle
notes of spice from the oak. The palate is medium-bodied, with elegant,
well-rounded tannins and a long, fresh finish.
