Umani Ronchi Cùmaro Conero Riserva

Umani Ronchi Cùmaro Conero Riserva 2013

Marche, ItalyThe Conero Riserva is montepulciano, first produced in 1985 at Conero, Marche. The vineyard faces south‐east, at a height of about 150‐200 meters, sitting over marine formations of very deep, chalky loams soils. Cùmaro is central to the story of Umani Ronchi, created in the mid-eighties to celebrate the montepulciano grape. The name Cùmaro is a tribute to Mount Conero, komaros in Greek, which means arbutus: an evergreen shrub which grows freely in its woodlands. Sound familiar, British Columbians? It’s a well made red, with plenty of structure and weight. The black cherry is almost chewy in that rustic style, but with the proper food it can be charming and heartwarming, and of course it will age for another decade.Tasted: 25 January 2019Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 36.93 private wine stores ON 29.95 LCBO NS 36.99 NSLC NF 35.99 NLLC Producer: Umani RonchiDistributors: Stile Brands
