Umani Ronchi CaSal di Serra Verdicchio 2017
Casal di Serra was one of the first truly "selected" Verdicchio made in this variety’s production area. It was created in the 1980s by selecting the best grapes grown in the Montecarotto vineyard, and later enriched with grapes from another three plots situated in the most suitable areas for cultivating Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi. All the values of a great indigenous variety find expression in this wine. Contact with its own natural yeasts during fermentation and in the ageing process gives Casal di Serra particular properties of richness and personality, without altering its fine balance and special elegance.
Ideal with fish dishes, oven-cooked or grilled, roast white meat and fresh cheeses.
Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
Very attractive and classic varietal nose with herby fruit and grassy notes. The palate offers crisp acidity with a little bit of waxiness and tasty stone fruit flavours. Lovely, long, finish. A classy wine to be enjoyed sooner rather than later.
This wine's enticing aromas of jasmine, Granny Smith apple and white peach float from the glass. The medium-bodied, concentrated palate doles out Bartlett pear, ripe grapefruit, ginger and sage touches alongside bright acidity and energizing mineral sensations. Drink through 2023.
Since the beginning of its history, the Azienda Vinicola Umani Ronchi has distinguished itself as a great producer of two of the most popular wines in 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, has refurbished the winery in Osimo, Marche, renovated the vineyard stock and created wines which have garnered international praise. Still, Bernetti is not yet satisfied and insists on continuing to work to enhance his product. This translates into serious work in the vineyard and the adoption of the most advanced techniques of cultivation and vinification.
Stretching along Italy’s eastern coast with neighbors, Umbria to its west and Abruzzo to its south, Marche is a region with a varying climate from north to south. Its coastal plains roll into hills that become the Apennine Mountains, which run the length of the country. The Marche's best red wines come from the grapes, Montepulciano and Sangiovese; the local Verdicchio makes refreshing, crisp and light whites.
