The unique and unmistakeable style of our wines comes from our region, a marvellous setting of lush hills running down to the Adriatic sea.
For thousands of years the vine has flourished in this environment, favoured by long hours of sunshine alternating with sea breezes which mitigate the harshness of the colder months.
The Marche Region is outstandingly suitable for viticulture and has the essential attributes for making fine wines. Umani Ronchi has been able to take advantage of these precious qualities: loose, calcareous soils for red grape varieties, fairly heavy clay soils for white wines, combined with a microclimate among the most gentle and generous in the world.
Umani Ronchi has distinguished itself since the beginning as a great interpreter of two of the most typical wines of the region, Verdicchio and Rosso Conero, and has played a leading role in experimentation and the introduction of advanced technology. In particular, during the last fifteen years we have gone through a long period of renewal in our vineyards, increasing the density of vines planted per hectare, selecting more suitable clones and rootstocks and modifying the form of training where necessary.
The results of this experience have recently been transferred to the neighbouring region of the Abruzzi, where in 2002 we purchased a 30 hectare estate in the Teramane Hills, a designated sub-area for the DOC appellation Montepulciano d'Abruzzo, which has now been recognised as the first and only DOCG wine in the region.
Between the Marche and the Abruzzi, the land in the Company’s ownership planted with vines now covers an area of 200 hectares, made up as follows: 110 hectares of Verdicchio Classico, 60 hectares of Rosso Conero and 30 hectares of Montepulciano d'Abruzzo / Colline Teramane.
