Conero Riserva DOCG
Campo San Giorgio
First vintage: 2009
The Conero Riserva Campo San Giorgio stands out as the most important experience of Umani Ronchi history in handling with excellence the Montepulciano grape from the Conero area.
The chosen name is the name of the exact piece of land, which has track on the back label, in Osimo municipality. Land that has clearly distinguished, after some experimentation harvests, for its unique character. Finding its roots in a long family tradition the label, finds its inspiration on the design of Rosso Conero of the 70’s, representing the vines, Camerano village and the Mount Conero surrounding. The goal is to enhance a wonderful and vocated terroir and the result is a great Montepulciano able to combine strength, deepness, territoriality, elegance and high harmony.

AREA OF PRODUCTION
The vine of Campo San Giorgio, around 15 years old average faces south-east, at a height of about 150 meters above sea level. The terrain, dating back to marine formations from the Pleiocene-Pleistocene era, consists of very deep, chalky clay loam. Only 10.000 square meters, containing 8.000 plants per hectare, distance is 2.1 meters between the rows, 60 cm along the row.
Bush-trained vine, kept within strict limits by very close pruning
YIELD PER HECTARE
Targeted thinning, aims to reach a production of about 500/750 gr of fruit per plant, and it has a yield of 5-6 tons per hectare.
The grapes are picked by hand, and collected and transported in boxes. The harvest, strictly connected with the climatic trend, does not normally in October, when the grapes have reached peak condition with an advanced degree of phenolic ripening.
The destalked grapes and a small variable percentage of whole bunches are fermented - without crushing - in stainless steel tanks on its natural yeasts at 28‐30°C for 14‐16 days.
Once the malolactic fermentation is completed, the wine is aged for 12 months in small barrels and further 12 months in large casks. The wine does not undergo any fining and filtration. After bottling, Campo San Giorgio is rests in a temperature‐controlled environment for about 8‐10 months.
75 cl bottle
Deep ruby red colour with purple and garnet bright tints.
Presenting a full and highly fruity bouquet: ripe cherry, plum, and orange peel finish, all this mixing up with a sweet spice taste, like vanilla and licorice plant.
The sweet touch of the fruit gives a very harmonic mouth and extremely silky tannins. Herbs notes harmonize with a long and pleasant finish.
A fine companion to elaborated and flavourful dishes based on red meats, game-birds, mature and spicy cheese.
Glasses for serving A large glass, with a fairly broad body. This allows the correct oxygenation of red wines which have had long ageing in bottle and whose tannins have taken on a softer character, developing complex tertiary aromas which will be well-concentrated in the narrower opening of the glass.
