Umani Ronchi “San Lorenzo” Rosso Conero DOC (2011)

Umani Ronchi “San Lorenzo” Rosso Conero DOC (2011) | Wines and People |
When wine made from the Montepulciano grape variety arrives in the UK it has normally come from Abruzzo, which makes this Umani Ronchi “San Lorenzo” Rosso Conero quite rare in that it comes from further north than Abruzzo (in fact it comes from the region of Marche). Here (aided by the warm summers in the south of the region) robust red wines are made under the Rosso Conero and Conero Riserva classifications. 
Vinified in stainless steel tanks (and with a year in oak) this 2011 Umani Ronchi “San Lorenzo” Rosso Conero offers a relatively pure bouquet of morello cherries, freshly picked plums and crushed flowers. The palate is dry, full and intensely flavoured. Showing slightly more complexity than was in evidence on the nose, the palate of this “San Lorenzo” Rosso Conero offers charcoal mineral notes alongside the primary flavours of plum and cherry that were obvious before. Slightly grippy tannins are paired with a juicy acidity that offers the choice of mid-term cellaring or immediate consumption.
SCORE: 86 points

The Le Marche region has a lot to offer to wine lovers. There are 5 DOCG wines and 16 DOC wines. From the prestigious and famous Verdicchio, to the Vernaccia di Serrapetrona, from the Offida Pecorino to the Offida Passerina. Also: Bianchello del Metauro, Colli Maceratesi, Colli Pesaresi, Esino, Falerio dei Colli Ascolani, I Terreni di Sanseverino, Lacrima di Morro d'Alba, Rosso Conero, Pergola, Rosso Piceno, San Ginesio Many of these wines are little known outside of Italy but visitors to the region have a pleasant surprise when they try the local wine produced by many small aziendas and cantinas.
