Umani Ronchi Conero Riserva Cumaro 2011

It was created in the mid eighties to celebrate the Montepulciano variety of vine, and an area close to the sea with highly calcareous soils, using methods based on very strict selection of grapes in the vineyard and what were, at least for then, modern techniques of vinification and ageing. The name Cumaro is a tribute to Mount Conero, komaros in Greek, which means ‘arbutus’: an evergreen shrub which grows freely in its woodlands. Since 2004 the wine has been entitled to the appellation DOCG (Guaranteed and Controlled Denomination of Origin) Conero Riserva. [+]
