Deep ruby red colour with purple and garnet bright tints, presenting a full and highly fruity bouquet: ripe cherry, plum, and orange peel finish, all this mixing up with a sweet spice taste, like vanilla and licorice. The sweet touch of the fruit gives a very harmonic mouth and extremely silky tannins. Herbs notes harmonise with a long and pleasant finish.
A fine companion to elaborate and flavourful dishes based on red meats, game-birds, mature and spicy cheese.
"This is the top-shelf wine from Umani Ronchi. The Conero Riserva Campo San Giorgio is made in limited quantities, with 5,280 bottles and 40 magnums produced in this vintage. Fruit comes from a small section of a single-vineyard planting. This is a pure expression of the Montepulciano grape, and the wine was first made in 2009. The bouquet is ample and wide, showing dark fruit tones, with blackberry and cherry in generous supply. Thanks to a sophisticated aging regime that takes the wine through one year of barrique followed by another year in large oak cask, you are also treated to pretty aromas of smoke, spice and tobacco. This is an important wine with the structure and backbone to pair with a fine cut of steak.
