The Marche (or Marches) is a region in central Italy’s eastern coast, or in the middle of the back of the “boot” on the Adriatic Sea. The rivers that run through it are the Metauro, Potenza, Tronto and Nera. There are a diverse number of microclimates thanks to the rolling hills off the Adriatic Coast and the Apennines Mountains, the rivers and the lowland areas. This affords wine-makers many choices between cool and warm climate grape growing conditions. 
Civilization and wine culture has been in the region since ancient times, starting with the Greeks, through the Etruscans, Romans, Byzantines and Lombards. In the 8th century, the Franks, including Charlemagne, began annexing the Marches to the papacy. This resulted in a heated land dispute between the Vatican and the ruling emperors, who attempted to retain portions of it as “fiefs,” which were controlled by various nobility. In the 10th century, the name “Marches,” which means &ldquo Read more »

  • Umani Ronchi Lacrima di Morro d'Alba Fonte del Re 2009


    An unusual and unpleasant bouquet, a cross between pencil shavings, armpit and barnyard. Sweet, bitter and acrid with a bit of burning tire to balance it out. Guess I'll use this one for cooking. Read More

I had this wine open for about four days and showed no signs of wear, in fact it got became meatier without loosing its g... Read More

  • Umani Ronchi Verdicchio Dei Castelli di Jesi Classico ! 2010


    This is a really thin bodied, sharp, metallic tart wine. Very acidic. The bouquet straddles the borderline between pineapple and vomit, with a hint of jute. I prefer a more floral, green apple taste. This wine is o.k. if you decide to make white sangria and bump up the taste with some green grapes, a hint of lime, kiwis, and a hint of honey. Read More
