Awarded Wines of Le Marche: Maximo 2008 Umani Ronchi | Wines and People | Scoop.it

The wine has been prized with "5 grappoli" by the AIS Guide "Duemilavini".

Variety: Sauvignon Blanc 100%

It is made in the highest part of the Villa Bianchi estate. Here, thanks to the very special climatic conditions caused by the alternation of high humidity and drier airflows, at fairly low temperatures, the Sauvignon Blanc grapes are attacked by Botrytis Cinerea in its most noble form. This gives the wine incredibly complex and rare flavours and aromas.

Winemaker's notes

A magnificent golden colour streaked with amber tints. On the nose it expresses distinct scents of honey, apricot and peach, followed by aromas of ripe fig, candied fruit and citrus. Rich in the mouth, where the elegant acidity fluidifies the sweetness, soft and balanced with clean, refreshing persistence, and notes of candied fruit and honey continually running through it.
