Umani Ronchi

Umani Ronchi got its start more than 60 years ago in Cupramontana, in the heart of the Verdicchio Classico production zone, only to expand to numerous other areas along the Adriatic coast. 

It was Gino Umani Ronchi who wrote its first chapters. He did so by bringing to life a small farm in Le Marche. 

A few years later the producer was taken over by the Bianchi-Bernetti family, Roberto Bianchi, a building contractor from Ancona with a deep passion for agriculture, and his son-in-law Massimo Bernetti, a recent political science graduate with his sights set on a career in diplomacy.

Massimo Bernetti oversaw the winery, carrying on his work with vision, foresight and entrepreneurial spirit. His efforts centred on three goals: expanding market share abroad, increase production, and increase the area under vines, which would gradually extend to over 200 hectares between Le Marche and Abruzzo.

During the same period, Massimo Bernetti decided to focus on the entire production chain, improving it and expanding the range of wines on offer, starting with reds. 1982 saw the first vintage of their Saint Lorenzo, with the Cumaro following in 1985. They continued to develop their Verdicchio by identifying single vineyards and producing reserve versions. 1983 saw production of the Casal di Serra, while 1985 brought the first harvest for their Verdicchio Villa Bianchi.


In the early 1990s, Massimo Bernetti was joined by his son Michele, who’d recently graduated in economics and business.

Thus began the season of Michele, who with his sights set beyond regional borders decided to partner with Giacomo Tachis, a skilled winemaker known for celebrated wines.

The collaboration resulted in the Pelago, winner of London’s International Wine Challenge. The prize for Champion Red Wine brought Umani Ronchi into the national and international spotlight. 

Michele and his technical staff are constantly fine-tuning their wines, resulting in a range of new products and painstaking attention to existing ones.

Indeed, in such a highly competitive market, both nationally and internationally, uncompromising quality and the ability to stand out are of the utmost importance.


The Wines 

Behind every Umani Ronchi wine is a world wrought of sensations, emotions and stories to tell. Whether it be from Marche or Abruzzo, choose the bottle best suited to your needs and tastes.

In the Marche region Umani Ronchi produce whites from the native variety Verdicchio. Sapid and fresh, it reveals a trademark hint of almond on the finish and is known for its ability to age particularly well. 

Also in the Marche, on Mount Conero, Montepulciano grapes are grown for red wines. This red offers up hints of spices, small berries and balsamic notes. It stands out for its pervasive tannins and excellent length.

In the Abruzzo, red wines made with Montepulciano d’Abruzzo are complex and balanced with cherry, liquorice, and spices. The unique alluvial soil gives rise to superb minerality in the wines and the Pecorino whites are fresh, citrusy and marked by superb sapidity.
