Located in central Italy between the Apennines and the Adriatic, the region enjoys a very varied landscape going from mountains through hills to beautiful beaches, towering cliffs and clear blue waters.
Marche is best known as a white wine region, although it is also home to some reds of very high quality.
It has been the territory of the Verdicchio grape for more than 600 years. The wines are characterized by lively acidity and subtle herbaceous undertones, and are an excellent food match for Brodetto di Pesce, a rich seafood stew.
Among the red wines of Marche, the finest are generally made from the Montepulciano grape and/or Sangiovese. The best DOCG is the intensely fragrant Rosso Conero Riserva.
Umani Ronchi is a wine estate owned by the Bianchi-Bernetti family, who since 1957 has been producing Verdicchio, Montepulciano and others that find their finest expression in Marche and Abruzzo.
Umani Ronchi has a total surface area under vine of 210 hectares nestling between the hills and the sea along the Adriatic coast.
All the vineyards are farmed organically. For the winery, 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.
In Europe, Umani Ronchi has been recognized for the “Best red wine in the world” awarded by IWC to Pelago in 1997. In Asia, Jorio made the break thanks to the manga “The drops of God”!
