Umani Ronchi Casal di Serra Verdicchio 2017
The Umani Ronchi story is one of ancient vines, land and people. Seasons waxing and waning. Harvests changing. Wines coming into being. The story began more than half a century ago at Cupramontana, in the heart of Verdicchio Classico country, and has spread further. Today Umani Ronchi is the wine estate owned by the Bianchi-Bernetti family, who since 1959 have been making superb-quality craft wines, coaxing the best out of the Verdicchio and Montepulciano that find their finest expression in Marche and Abruzzo.
Vecchie Vigne Casal di Serra was created to preserve and glorify the great historical and qualitative heritage of the old vineyards on the Montecarotto farm. The old vines were planted in the early 1970's, and their particular position and fine balance between fruit and leaf growth means that the grapes can be harvested when they have reached a perfect ripening status. The wine is aged over a long period, first in concrete tanks in contact with the native yeasts and subsequently in bottle, and that gives this cru its particular fullness and brings out the typical Verdicchio character.
All of the Umani Ronchi vineyards, from the Verdicchio to the Montepulciano, are farmed organically. For the family, this was a technical decision rather than an ideological one. Organic farming requires balance in nature and a range of crops, trees and herbs that make up a biodiverse environment. The plants thrive on Umani Ronchi lands leaving space for a viticulture that gets the best out of the grapes we grow without compromising the quality of the wines. At Umani Ronchi, organic means quality.

Wine EnthusiastThis wine's enticing aromas of jasmine, Granny Smith apple and white peach float from the glass. The medium-bodied, concentrated palate doles out Bartlett pear, ripe grapefruit, ginger and sage touches alongside bright acidity and energizing mineral sensations. Drink through 2023.
