Umani Ronchi

The Umani Ronchi 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. From Serra dei Conti in Marche to Roseto degli Abruzzi, Umani Ronchi has a total surface area under vine of 200 hectares nestling between the hills and the sea along the Adriatic coast. The 185 km of rows are distributed across ten districts, each with its own vocation and terroir. These are numbers that tell of our ceaseless, almost feverish efforts working the finest wine lands with the help of cutting-edge vineyard management and winemaking techniques. Umani Ronchi has doubled its estate and replanted 85% of its old vines since the Seventies. We have invested in Verdicchio and Rosso Conero and recovered the Pecorino and Lacrima di Morro d’Alba varieties, always setting ourselves ambitious wine quality objectives. All our vineyards, from the Verdicchio to the Montepulciano, are farmed organically. For us, 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. Umani Ronchi is driven by a strong sense of ethics and respects the environment lavishing attention on the territory and biodiversity. Our approach is highly practical when discussion turns to precision viticulture, machine management, vineyard treatments and organic fertilisers. Sustainability also underpins our choice of materials. Light glass bottles have a lower impact in terms of CO2 emissions and our synthetic cane sugar stoppers are 100% recyclable. Our energy is supplied by a photovoltaic array. Everything reflects a sustainable way of thinking and acting.(http://www.umanironchi.com/en/)
