About The Producer
The Umani Ronchi story is one of ancient vines, land and people. Seasons waxing and waning. Harvests changing. Wines coming into being. The story began more than half a century ago at Cupramontana, in the heart of Verdicchio Classico country, and has spread further. Today Umani Ronchi is the wine estate owned by the Bianchi-Bernetti family, who since 1957 have been making superb-quality craft wines, coaxing the best out of the Verdicchio and Montepulciano that find their finest expression in Marche and Abruzzo.

The vineyards, which are between eight and thirty years old and trained on the Guyot system, are situated on the band of hillside between 200 and 350 meters above sea level, on opposite sides of the Esino valley. The soils go back to pleiocene-pleistocene formations, and are characterised by being very deep, medium-calcareous clay loams. The yield of the vineyards never exceeds 7 tons per hectare.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
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.

91 Points - James Suckling
Aromas of lemon zest, fresh pear, lemongrass and wet stones. It’s medium-bodied with bright acidity and a waxy texture. Flavorful, mineral finish. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold.

90 Points - Wine Advocate
The 2019 Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico Superiore CaSal di Serra (made with organic fruit) shows a light and luminous appearance that appears shiny in the glass. The wine offers simple but exceptionally pure aromas of spring flower, citrus, cut grass and crushed limestone. It is lightweight, tart and fresh. It's the perfect match for a traditional dish of anchovy involtini. You don't get better value than this.
