In a Nutshell
Conero showcases some of the finest Montepulciano of the region.
Brilliant ruby red colour with garnet tints. The nose is sweet, predominantly fruity, with typical notes of morello cherry. Rich and pulpy in the mouth, flavourful and pleasantly harmonious, with silky tannins. The long finish is austere yet fruity.
The grapes are destalked and lightly pressed, then undergo maceration for 10- 12 days in steel fermentation vats. As soon as the alcoholic fermentation is finished, the wine starts the malolactic fermentation. The wine then moves on to the ageing process. About 50% is aged in 5000-8000 litre oak lasks, and the rest in barriques on their third or fourth time of use, for a period of about 12 months. After assemblage, San Lorenzo rests in bottle for a further 6 months.
Some wineries do such a great job of popularising the wines of a particular region that the association between the two becomes all but unbreakable: so it is with Umani Ronchi and the wines of the Marche and Abruzzi
