This story began more than half a century ago in Cupramontana, in the heart of Verdicchio Classico. Today the Umani Ronchi wine estate is owned by the Bianchi-Bernetti family. Three wine zones - Castelli di Jesi, Conero and Abruzzo - and numerous vineyards are spread over 10 districts. A total of 210 ha have been planted with Verdicchio and Montepulciano which are best expressed in Marche and Abruzzo. The 185 km of vines are nestled between the hills and the Adriatic coast, each with its unique characteristics and terroir. Umani Ronchi has doubled his estate and replanted 85% of his old vines since the 1970s. They invested in Verdicchio and Rosso Conero and restored the Pecorino and Lacrima di Morro d'Alba varieties. Their vineyards are also all organically farmed. This is a technical decision rather than an ideological consideration. The vines bloom in such a way that there is room for a viticulture that gets the best out of the grapes without sacrificing the quality of the wines.

The Umani Ronchi San Lorenzo is a 100% Montepulciano. The vines are planted on lime and clay soil. The grapes come from two different vineyards, both owned by Umani Ronchi and located in Ancona and Osima. The planting density in the vineyards is 2200 to 5680 vines per ha. The grapes are picked manually from late September to mid-October.

First, a skin soaking takes place for about 12 days in stainless steel vats and then the alcoholic and malolactic fermentation, followed by a 12-month aging in wood of which 50% of the wine is aged in barriques and the rest in large oak barrels of 5000-8000 liters. After the assembly has been composed of the 2 different maturations, the wine rests for 6 months in the bottle. In the glass, the San Lorenzo has a beautiful fresh garnet red color. The nose smells sweet and fruity, with especially predominant notes of morello. The attack is rich, juicy, flavoursome and pleasant with velvety tannins. A long finish, which is mainly fruity.

The San Lorenzo Montepulciano goes well with hearty pasta dishes, game, stews, rich cheeses, but also roasted white meats and dishes from the grill. The wine is also excellent with a nice Pizza.
