Umani Ronchi 2020 Pecorino
The Bernetti family, proprietors of Umani Ronchi, have led the quality revolution of the Marches’ indigenous variety, Verdicchio. Based near Ancona on the eastern coast of central Italy, the vine has flourished in the mild climate, favoured by hilly terrain, long hours of sunshine, cool nights and moderating sea breezes from the Adriatic.
The Pecorino grape, indigenous to Abruzzo, derives its name from the strong connection between sheep farming and agriculture. Almost forgotten by the 1980’s it was rescued by a handful of wineries and today Pecorino is one of Italy’s most in demand wines. Umani Ronchi’s Pecorino vineyards are in Roseto degli Abruzzi overlooking the Grand Sasso mountains.
Aged in stainless steel without malo. Fresh and zesty, this is medium-full on the palate with pleasing texture and a crisp finish.
