Umani Ronchi

Owned by family Bianchi-Bernetti since over 50 years, Umani Ronchi was founded in Cupramontana at the end of the 50’s and it has distinguished itself as a great producer of the highest quality wines. Surrounded by big experts and cooperating with University of Ancona, the company’s activity translates into serious work of experimental agronomy and vineyard care and the adoption of the most advanced techniques of winemaking. With Massimo Bernetti since the 70’s, who has been now joined in the management by his son Michele, the winery is playing a leading role on the wine scenery, both domestic and international one. Currently the company counts on two different vinification facilities; the land in its ownership planted with vines covers a total of 230 hectares, spread over the most suitable production areas of Marche and Abruzzi regions. Twelve distinct plots match with twelve “crus” each one with unique characteristics, respecting and making the most of the terroir and indigenous grape varieties.

Research is also being energetically pursued with the most representative international varieties, such as Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, for creating innovative wines which can stand comparison with the finest in the world. The most exciting result of this passion is Pèlago 1994, which won the prestigious International Wine Challenge in London in 1997 and was listed by the magazine Wine Enthusiast in its league table of the 100 top wines of 1998, with the extremely high score of 97/100. Umani Ronchi SpA, combining quality and quantity, has achieved great results and can boast real recognition thanks to its finest wines, but also with its products made for a larger market.
