All our vineyards, from the Verdicchio to the Montepulciano, are farmed organically. For us, this was a technical decision rather than an ideological one. Organic farming requires balance in nature and a range of crops, trees and herbs that make up a biodiverse environment. The plants thrive on Umani Ronchi lands leaving space for a viticulture that gets the best out of the grapes we grow without compromising the quality of the wines. At Umani Ronchi, organic means quality.
Jorio was created in the mid-nineties to express the great potential of the Montepulciano grape. Umani Ronchi use selected grapes in collaboration with dedicated Abruzzese winegrowers who farm vineyards in favoured sites. The wine is ruby red with aromas that evoke plum and red cherry. With smooth clean tannins in the mouth it is full and fresh with a long and intense finish.
Deep ruby red, recalls plums and red cherries on the nose, followed by balsamic and salty notes on a background of ripe liquorice. With eloquent and clean tannins in the mouth, it comes across as medium to full and vigorous, with a long and intense finish. Best served with hearty dishes such as roast beef and game.
