We have consistently stocked Podere Montepulciano for over 20 years and it has continually offered one of the best drinking values out of Italy, whether it be for a classic pizza or that friendly 'anytime' glass of wine. The 2020 delivers plenty more of the delicious drinking pleasure you have come to love!


Winery notes (2020 Vintage)
"All our vineyards, from the Verdicchio to the Montepulciano, are farmed organically. For us, this was a technical decision rather than an ideological one. Organic farming requires balance in nature and a range of crops, trees and herbs that make up a biodiverse environment. The plants thrive on Umani Ronchi lands leaving space for a viticulture that gets the best out of the grapes we grow without compromising the quality of the wines. At Umani Ronchi, organic means quality.

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.

A young and immediately drinkable wine: ruby red colour with violet tints, delicate aromas of plum and morello cherry, robust and medium-bodied in the mouth, soft, generous tannins, with a dry and flavourful finish. Works splendidly with; Pasta with meat sauces, roast white and red meat, chicken and rabbit chasseur, mixed grills and pizza! "

89/100 Antonio Galloni of Vinous.com, April 2021 (2019 Vintage)
"It’s hard to pull away from the glass, as the 2019 Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Podere wafts up notes of crushed violets, sweet spice, blackberries and wet stone. It’s soft and round, further soothing the senses with a pure display of ripe red berries as cooling acids maintain freshness. Purple-tinged florals and salty minerals linger, making for a pleasant conclusion to such a satisfying glass of no-frills Montepulciano."


Oz Clarke
"Montepulciano is a tremendous grape, full of plummy depth, but since it is mostly grown in some of Italy's more rustic wine areas, too often the flavours are rustic too. But this one captures all the dark plum core of flavour but balances it with nice bright acid which allows the fruit to be juicy and mouth-watering even as the wine itself is pretty solid."


5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, September 2019 (2017 Vintage)
"The wine is sweetly fruited and immediately appealing on the nose showing Black Doris plum, sweet raspberry, floral and hazelnut characters with a touch of spicy complexity. It is ripe and beautifully rounded on the palate with vibrant fruit flavours backed by silky tannins, finishing delightfully long and soothing. At its best: now to 2021."

  • 5 star review  Excellent service. We wanted to bring wine from NZ homw to Europe, but shipping rates were so high and shipping times were so long that we decided to take it on the plane instead. The team here helped us package up 18 bottles of different wines we had tasted at wineries in Central Ontago and Malbourgh for a flight and everything arrived safely to Europe. Many, many thanks. We have some happy friends and family now!
