Umani Ronchi got its start more than 60 years ago in Cupramontana, in the heart of the Verdicchio Classico production zone, only to expand to numerous other areas along the Adriatic coast. It began with Massimo Bernetti and continues today with his son Michele, in a harmonious and fluid management approach that’s expressed through common, shared goals. Today Massimo and Michele move in concert, all without ever losing sight of the value of “human capital” without which nothing can be achieved or built.
