Umani Ronchi Pelago 2018
Umani Ronchi's Pelago joined the list of the most sought-after Italian wines in the world in 1997, with its first year of production, when it won the Best Red Wine trophy at the International Wine Challenge in London. Pelago is a red wine that marries the style and personality of the indigenous Montepulciano grape alongside the noble Cabernet Sauvignon grape, adding a touch of Bordeaux complexity and aroma to the wines profile. The wine is only produced in exceptional vintages. Pelago is inky, ruby red in colour that displays intense aromas typical of a Cabernet profile; refined spice notes of coffee, black pepper, liquorice and tobacco against a backdrop of grass and hay. The mouth unfurls forest berries, vanilla and mineral aromas and noticeable but mature tannins all in harmony with the wine’s elegance.
