The Fonte del Re gets its name by one of the most antique and famous sources, placed at the centre of the production area of this wine. The Lacrima di Morro d’Alba is a very old vineyard which miraculously survived in our time in a small production area, at about 15 kilometres from the Adriatic sea, around the town of Morro d’Alba. The vineyard gets its name from the characteristic drops (also known as tear) which falls from the grape when it has reached its maturation point. The grapes are harvested in baskets, towards the middle of October. After the maceration of the peels for 10-12 days, the wine obtained is conserved in steel tubs until it’s bottled. It then goes through the thinning process in the bottle. The colour is a very intense ruby red with violet reflections. The intense perfume of undergrowth brings roses and violets to mind. The texture is soft and full and it has a full body.

The producer

Since the beginning of its history, Umani Ronchi has distinguished itself as a great interpreter of two of the most typical wines of the Marche region, Verdicchio and Rosso Conero. Massimo Bernetti, who since the 1990s has been joined in the management of the company by his son Michele, has created wines which are appreciated throughout the world, has renovated the vineyard stock and has refurbished the great winery at Osimo, but he is not yet satisfied and stubbornly insists on following the imperatives of a product of the highest quality. All this translates into serious work of experimental agronomy and vineyard care, and the adoption of the most advanced techniques of cultivation and vinification. In the last few years the growth of interest in the wines produced in the neighbouring region of Abruzzo led Umani Ronchi in 2002 to purchase a 30 hectare holding in the Teramane hills, a designated sub-area of Montepulciano d'Abruzzo appellation.
