Sold Out

The court at Cupramonta once employed a veritable troop of servants whose only job was to peel grapes for the indulgently demanding Contessa. And why not? It provided a wage to many a serf, and other than being slightly tiring for the fingers, wasn't really taxing.


But things change, and sadly economic pressures forced the court to 'downsize'. The peelers had to go. The Contessa was furious, until one of the smart advisors persuaded her there was an even more effortless way to enjoy the peachy, appley loveliness of her favourite fruit. One that didn't even require her to chew. Just sip. The Contessa was delighted. She's even been known to open the bottle herself, sometimes.


Won a gold award, with 96 points, at the Decanter World Wine Awards 2018.


The Umani Ronchi story goes back more than half a century ago in the heart of Verdicchio Classico country. Today, the estate is owned and run by the Bianchi-Bernetti family who have made superb-quality craft wines since 1959. With vineyards in Marche and Abruzzo, Michele Bernetti and his father, Massimo, coax the best out of the Verdicchio and Montepulciano grapes to find their finest expression.


Michele and Massimo encourage innovation and experimentation within winemaking, which is why they invest their time in specially training the team of young agronomists and oenologists as well as taking care of their land. Giacomo Mattiolo, Umani Ronchi’s young and current oenologist, joined the winery in his early twenties, growing his knowledge and following the winery’s progress for more than ten years.


All of the vineyards are farmed organically as the winery is driven by strong ethics and a respect for the environment.


Verdicchio Classico CaSal di Serra has a straw-yellow colour with golden hints. On the nose it shows intense perfumes of wild flowers and sumptuous aromas of yellow pulp fruits including peaches, apricots and golden apples. The palate is rich and velvety which is balanced with a healthy dose of freshness. The finish is persistent, dry and presents intense fruitiness.
