Umani Ronchi Lacrima di Morro d'Alba Fonte del Re 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

'Lacrima' is a small and ancient grape variety named for the characteristic drops that appear on ripe bunches. Grapes are harvested in the middle of October and alcoholic fermentation is on the skins for 10 to 12 days. Malolactic fermentation occurs in small stainless steel vats, thereafter the wine is allowed to age in the bottle for 3 months prior to release. The wine itself is an intensive ruby red colour with violet hues. There are typical hints of roses and violets on the nose. On the palate the wine is complex with a firm structure, and is round and fruity. The finish is dry and long. This will compliment game and other rich meats where its firm structure will help to balance the flavours throughout the dish.

Since the beginning of its history, the Azienda Vinicola Umani Ronchi has distinguished itself as a great interpreter of two of the most typical wines of the Marche region, Verdicchio and Rosso Conero. Massimo Bernetti, who since the 1990s has been joined in the management of the Company by his son Michele (see photo), has created wines which are appreciated throughout the world, has renovated the vineyard stock and has refurbished the great winery at Osimo, but he is not yet satisfied and stubbornly insists on following the imperatives of a product of the highest quality. All this translates into serious work of experimental agronomy and vineyard care, and the adoption of the most advanced techniques of cultivation and vinification. n the last few years the growth of interest in the wines produced in the neighbouring region of Abruzzo led Umani Ronchi SpA in 2002 to purchase a 30 hectare holding in the Teramane hills, a designated sub-area of Doc Montepulciano d'Abruzzo which has achieved an upgrade to the prestigious appellation Docg. Here, in the picturesque farmhouse which dominates an estate well-planted with vineyards, a vinification winery is to be constructed, to join the existing ageing cellar. Read less

Lovely bouquet of violets and roses once it opens up...
