Wine tasting notes

Another product of the inimitable mind of Giacomo Tachis, Pelago blends Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Montepulciano, in a very deliberate fusion of the best local variety with the international grapes taking Italy by storm at the time of its 1994 debut. This intelligent strategy has granted it immunity from the whims of fashion and remain a great-value classic a quarter-century later.

Expert reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2016) - 94 pts

This wine is now celebrating its 22nd harvest. The Umani Ronchi 2016 Pelago is a blend of Montepulciano, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot aged in French oak for 14 months. This is a wine with a deep core of dark fruit and a lot of stuffing that adds textural fiber and richness. Pelago shows a downright contemporary style that is expressed in terms of volume, softness and phenolic weight (or sheer grape concentration). This is a super Marche wine from start to finish, with black cherry, blackberry, soft spice, leather and tar. The 2016 vintage is especially rich and important. When you're ready to open it, sample it with wedges of an aged goat-milk caciotta.


James Suckling (2016) - 91 pts

Aromas of sour cherries, currants, olives, cloves and rosemary. It’s medium-bodied with firm, fine tannins and fresh acidity. Savory and juicy finish. Drink or hold.
