PRODUCT OVERVIEW:
Marco Speri is the fifth generation of one of the most important winemaking families in Valpolicella. His father, Benedetto, perfected some of the first Amarones; Marco followed in his father’s footsteps at Speri winery for about 25 years. In 2008, Marco created his own brand, Secondo Marco, to make wines according to his own vision. His goal was to make elegant, food-friendly wines by focusing on higher acidity and less residual sugar. Today’s offer is a magnificent display of his success; it is varietally and regionally correct yet is a very personal interpretation of the Valpolicella region.*

Marco Speri’s 15 hectares of vineyards are located in the town of Fumane, in the heart of Valpolicella Classico appellation east of Lake Garda. With balance and elegance in mind, Marco made Corvina and Corvinone the dominant varietals in today’s wine, along with small percentages of Rondinella, Oseleta, Croatina, and Pipionana. After 15 days of pre-fermentation maceration, the juice underwent a long (90-day) fermentation using indigenous yeasts in cement tanks; these practices ensured that the wine would retain lits sapidity and freshness, two essential characteristics of the Fumane region. The wine was then aged in large Slavonian oak casks.*

The 2016 Secondo Marco Valpolicella Classico is characterized by aromas and flavors of black raspberries, morello, and red cherries. Bright and refreshing, it is light to medium in body, with juicy acidity and hints of aromatic herbs, graphite, and blackberry jam. It finishes long, thanks to that balancing acidity.
