That price is not a misprint. As the new vintage comes in, I locked into an amazing price on the perfect spring wine. But unfortunately, with big press and such a small price tag, this one is destined to sell out in a day or two. An Editors’ Choice from Wine Enthusiast, along with rave reviews from Vinous and Wine Spectator and all for a wine that can be had today for less than $9/bottle. Hurry up on this one!
Umani Ronchi is starting to make a name for themselves amongst the Nicholas Wines faithful. There’s good reason for that. They make flat out delicious, every-day drinking wine, which stylistically pairs well with most kinds of cooking. These wines are ridiculously well-priced and consistently wow critics.
Eric Guido of Vinous went on a huge long rant about how much he loved Umani Ronchi, saying that although they manage more than 210 hectares of vines between Marche and Abruzzo, they still “manage to deliver one of the most balanced and quality-driven portfolios within the two regions.”
Today’s beauty is a Castello di Jesi Verdicchio from one of the most famous and historic Marche appellations. The Verdicchios here are absolutely zipped up, electric white wines that are so good, that legend even has it that the troops of the King of the Visigoths drank barrels of Verdicchio to maintain their strength before marching to sack Rome!
This one dazzles. Vinous called out the delicious tropical notes, “hints of papaya and young mango” and even called this knockout every day drinker, “weightier than anticipated”. Wine Enthusiast in their Editors’ Choice review called it “tangy and fresh”, while Wine Spectator took notice of the notes of “Asian pear and minerality”.
