Product Description

Description

Jorio is Umani Ronchi's selected Montepulciano d'Abruzzo DOC. It was created in the mid-nineties to express the great potential of this varietal, in collaboration with fanatically dedicated Abruzzese winegrowers with vineyards in particularly favourable areas for its growth. The name of the wine is intended as a tribute to the great twentieth-century Abruzzese poet Gabriele D'Annunzio who wrote a pastoral tragedy called "The Daughter of Jorio". Deep ruby red, recalls plums and red cherries on the nose, followed by balsamic and salty notes on a background of ripe liquorice. With eloquent and clean tannins in the mouth, it comes across as full and vigorous, with a long and intense finish. Pair with pasta, roasted white and red meats. Vintage in image may vary.

Vineyard Info

Umani Ronchi is a one of the leading players of the Adriatic Coast wine area. The Bernetti-Bianchi family have been passionate winemakers in Marche and Abruzzo for 3 generations. Since 1959 Umani Ronchi 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, with vineyards on gentle slopes between the Apennines and the Adriatic sea.

Umani Ronchi is focused on local indigenous grapes and its production is spread on 3 estates in the "terroirs" of Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi, Conero and Abruzzo. Located in various municipalities of Abruzzo Region, the vineyards from which we produce JORIO are distinguished by the special attention which is dedicated to pruning. The aim is to limit fruit production and create ideal conditions for air to circulate around the productive layer of the vine. These are essential conditions for ensuring ideal ripening of the Montepulciano grape.
