TASTING NOTES

The Secondo Marco winery was founded in 2008 by Marco Speri, a member of the historic Speri family known in the land of Amarone. Located in Fumane, it enjoys an ideal climate for growing vines with slight temperature fluctuations due to the presence of Lake Garda, but in a soil rich in mineral salts. Amarone Classico della Valpolicella is made from a blend of native red grapes from the Veneto region, made up of 70% Corvina, 15% Corvinone, 10% Rondinella and 5% other native red grapes. The vineyard uses the pergola training system, and during manual harvesting the Secondo Marco winery selects only the best bunches, which are then dried for about 120 days. The must ferments for 45 days, macerating in contact with the skins. This is finally followed by the important ageing phase, in which the wine is first kept for 42 months in 50-hectolitre oak barrels, and then after bottling for another 12 months to mature directly in glass. Secondo Marco’s signature Amarone della Valpolicella Classico wine displays a dark, dense colour that echoes the hue of ruby. Deep aromas on the nose, merging into notes of small red and black berry fruits, alternating with hints of spices and lightly roasted coffee. On the palate, it is full-bodied, vigorous, soft and warm, with a consistent and flavourful profile that relies on perfectly crafted tannins that enhance the smoothness of every sip. A label of great character and intensity, Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is excellent paired with aged cheeses or with stewed red meat main courses. To fully appreciate this wine, it should be served at 16/18°C. Read more Read less
THE WINERY

Secondo Marco

The Secondo Marco winery is located in Fumane, in the heart of Valpolicella Classica. The area enjoys a perfect microclimate: a combination of winds and a cold-mild climate, particularly favourable for the development of vines. The soil is rich in mineral salts and is very variable in stratigraphy, even for vineyards in the same locality. This is combined with the variables of research in the winery to bring out all the full flavour and richness of the grape's aromas. The company comes from a family tradition, with the desire to change and offer something new but with the intention of leaving room for the new generation. The company, after years of continuous research and observation in the vineyard and soil, decided to be the first to adopt the modified Y-shaped pergola planting, altering the traditional cultivation method used for the vines of Valpolicella. The advantages were mainly to allow more light, ventilation and leaf structure for the vines. The bunches of grapes grow perfectly in a hanging manner, without touching the shoots and avoiding invasive maintenance with greater ease of harvesting during the harvest period. Name and address of producer/distributor: Secondo Marco Azienda Agricola, Via Campolongo 9, 37022 Fumane (VR). Products from this winery should be stored in a cool, dry place away from heat sources.
