Maiolati Spontini


Verdicchio Hills

In the Seventies, the vine stock was 85% verdicchio with 15% malvasia and trebbiano. Today, Monte Schiavo has ten hectares of verdicchio and 4.5 hectares of cabernet sauvignon and merlot, two international red grapes that are very much at home in the warm site climate and on soil that is particularly well-suited to growing these varieties.

Monte Schiavo is one of the youngest Umani Ronchi vineyards, having been completely replanted.
