Umani Ronchi Verdicchio Casal di Serra 2020

Country: Italy Region: Marche Sub- Region: Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi

Grapes: Grape Verdicchio 100

Tasting Note:

Intense, round and fresh aromas lead to a dry, soft palate with notes of ripe peaches and apples and fresh, citrus acidity.

Winemaking: The harvest is carried out by hand and normally takes place in the period from the end of September to the first ten days of October. Particular attention is paid to determining the right moment for the harvest, which must coincide with reaching the best balance between sugar content, phenolic ripening and acidity. After soft and gentle pressing, the “fiore” (firs press juice) is cooled down and decanted in a static manner. Parts of the grapes go through “vinificazione pellicolare” (skin contact) which extract the varietal character. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel with temperature controlled which goes on for 10/15 days. Most of the wine does not go through malolactic conversion and it ages on its lees for 5 months, plus a few more months in bottle before release.

Vineyard :

Casal di Serra was one of the first truly "selected" Verdicchio made in this variety’s production area. It was created in the 1980s by selecting the best grapes grown in the Montecarotto vineyard, and later enriched with grapes from another three plots situated in the most suitable areas for cultivating Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi. All the values of a great indigenous variety find expression in this wine. Contact with its own natural yeasts during fermentation and in the ageing process gives Casal di Serra particular properties of richness and personality, without altering its fine balance and special elegance. The vineyards, which are between eight and thirty years old and trained on the Guyot system, are situated on the band of hillside between 200 and 350 meters above sea level, on opposite sides of the Esino valley. The soils go back to pleiocene‐pleistocene formations, and are characterised by being very deep, medium‐calcareous clay loams.

The yield of the vineyards never exceeds 7 tons per hectare.

Food matching: Ideal with fish dishes, oven‐cooked or grilled, roast white meat and fresh cheeses.
