Umani Ronchi Vecchie Vigne Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi 2017

The Umani Ronchi story began in 1957 when Gino Umani Ronchi established a small farm in the heart of the Verdicchio Classico region. It was just a few years later that the Bianchi-Bernetti family purchased the farm and although they retained the original name, they have certainly put their own indelible stamp on it. With 210 hectares under vine in Castelli di Jesi, Conero and Abruzzo, and a dedicated winemaking facility in each of these regions, they have achieved scale whilst still retaining an unwavering focus on typicity and quality. The result is a range of wines which highlights both the versatility and the quality potential of the Marche’s and Abruzzo’s native grape varieties.

Umani Ronchi Vecchie Vigne Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi 2017

  • Vecchie Vigne was created to preserve and glorify the great historical and qualitative heritage of the old
    vineyards on the Montecarotto farm. The old vines were planted in the early 70s, and their particular
    position and fine balance between fruit and leaf growth means that the grapes can be harvested when
    they have reached a perfect ripening status. The wine is aged over a long period, first in concrete tanks in
    contact with the native yeasts and subsequently in bottle, and that gives this cru its particular fullness
    and brings out the typical Verdicchio character.
  • The vineyards are more than forty five years old and trained on the doppio capovolto system. they are
    situated at about 250‐300 meters above sea level, on a hillside facing east. The soil is very deep, clay loam,
    fairly fresh, and represents the ideal for a vine such as Verdicchio. The yield per hectare is between 6 and
    7 tons.
    Harvest
    The grapes are picked by hand, and collected in boxes. The harvest takes place on the borderline between
    the end of September, first ten days of October, when the grapes have reached a perfect ripening status.
    Vinification
    After a light pressing, the prime must is rapidly cooled and then goes through static decantation.
    Fermentation, in steel tanks with the temperature maintained at between 16o and 18°C, takes 10‐15 days.
    The wine does not undergo a malolactic fermentation, in order to preserve freshness and acidity. The
    ageing stage lasts about ten months, during which the wine remains in contact with its own fermentation
    yeasts in concrete tanks. Vecchie Vigne rests 6 months in bottle before being put on sale.
