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 vineyards located predominantly in the provinces
of Chieti and Teramo, trained using the tendone system. Harvest was
carried out by hand in late September and early October.
Winery Following a pre-fermentation maceration lasting a maximum of ten days,
alcoholic and then malolactic fermentation took place in stainless steel
vats. The wine was left to mature for four months in stainless steel before
Taste Youthful and juicy, with flavours of plums and morello cherries. The palate
is full-bodied with robust tannins and a fruit-filled, yet dry finish
