Winemakers Notes: Jorio is Umani Ronchi’s selected Montepulciano d’Abruzzo DOC. It was created in the mid-nineties to express the great potential of this varietal, in collaboration with fanatically dedicated Abruzzese winegrowers with vineyards in particularly favorable areas for its growth. The name of the wine is intended as a tribute to the great twentieth-century Abruzzese poet Gabriele D’Annunzio, who made his wild, provincial native soil into a “barbaric” novelty, exciting and transgressive, with which he stirred and won the public’s favor.

Winemaker’s Notes: From our selected vineyards the grapes of Tempranillo & Syrah are fermented in 16-Hectoliter egg-shaped concrete tanks below 17°C/62°F to obtain this wonderful rosé. Then it is aged for 4 months in French oak barrels with the aim to produce a smooth and round mouth-feel. Notes of tart red plum, cherry and cranberry are evident on the nose. The well-integrated oak gives hints of nuts, toast and ripe creamy weight, apricot and peach fruit and an orange-peel savory finish.
