** Previously known as Golden Fleece Pecorino. **

The Umani Ronchi story is one of ancient vines, land and people. Seasons waxing and waning. Harvests changing. Wines coming into being. The story 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.

Pecorino vines trained in the Roseto degli Abruzzi estate that overlooks the Grand Sasso mountain, and completing the grapes need with strict selections led by producer's agronomic supervision, especially in the northern part of Chieti. Soil is here mainly clay—sandy, deep and rather fresh. The area enjoys a good termal range which grants elegance and complexity of aromas.

Grapes are hand picked in September, paying the highest care not to lose their acidity content. After a light pressing, the prime must is rapidly cooled and then goes through static decantation. The alcoholic fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at a temperature of 16‐18°C for about 10/15 days. The wine does not undergo malolactic fermentation. The wine rests in stainless steel tanks for about 4 months, in contact with its own yeasts.
