2020 Umani Ronchi Montepulciano d'Abruzzo DOC Podere

Abruzzo, Italy

A versatile, enjoyable and excellent-value Montepulciano for any occasion.



About the Wine

This attractive wine hails from a few of the Bernetti family's own vineyards in Abruzzo. The aim is to capture and express all the best elements of this charming grape and the particular sites of its origins. In order to achieve this, grapes are hand harvested before fermenting and resting a few months all in stainless steel.

Fresh, soft and very alluring, this is a lovely medium-weighted Montepulciano d'Abruzzo displaying typical plum and cherry fruits with a fine dusting of tanning and some minerality on the mellow finish. Excellent value for money here, seriously easy drinking and begging for a pizza to pair up with.

About Umani Ronchi

Umani Ronchi is owned by the Bianchi-Bernetti family, who since 1957 have been tending their vines across the Abruzzo and Marche.

They farm their vineyards organically, for technical rather than ideological reasons, and sustainability is at their core: lighter glass bottles with a lower impact in terms of CO2 emissions, and synthetic cane sugar corks that are 100% recyclable.

From the Producer

Montepulciano is one of the most widespread indigenous varieties in Italy, and is cultivated predominently along the Adriatic side of the peninsula. The Umani Ronchi version of Montepulciano d’Abruzzo is intended to be an interpretation of this vine which aims to exalt its varietal characteristics and its freshness, combining these qualities with just the right amount of charm and softness. The result is a very pleasant and drinkable wine which goes with many different kinds of dishes.

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 02 8376 8775 or and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

Can I special order a wine you do not sell? If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
