Overview

Cumaro is one of the most important wines in the story of Umani Ronchi, and it can also be numbered among the founder members of the family of fine wines from the Conero area. It was created in the mid eighties to celebrate the Montepulciano variety of vine, and an area close to the sea with highly calcareous soils, using methods based on very strict selection of grapes in the vineyard. The name Cumaro is a tribute to Mount Conero, komaros in Greek, which means "arbutus"; an evergreen shrub which grows freely in its woodlands. Since 2004 the wine has been entitled to the appellation DOCG Conero Riserva.
