Umani Ronchi was founded in 1957 by Gino Umani Ronchi, and was later acquired by Massimo Bernetti. During the 1990s, Michele Bernetti joined his father Massimo in the management of the winery. Umani Ronchi is widely considered the leading wine producer in Le Marche. Stretching along the Eastern coast of Italy, this region provides an ideal environment for the Montepulciano and Verdicchio grapes. Within Le Marche, Umani Ronchi owns over 400 acres in the prestigious production areas of Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico and Rosso Conero.
The mission of Umani Ronchi is to continually improve the quality of its wines, accentuating the varietal characteristics of the regional grapes from Le Marche and Abruzzo. Most of their wines are produced from single vineyards, a practice that has transformed the image of Le Marche in Italy and around the world. Gambero Rosso recently described Umani Ronchi as the ‘Ambassador of Le Marche, making elegant and qualitative wines that are modern yet classic’.
