Region: Umbria, Italy
Grape varieties: 92% Sangiovese, 4% Malvasia Nera, and 4% Colorino
The blend which comes from their organic estate vines is 92% Sangiovese, 4% Malvasia Nera, and 4% Colorino, and after being hand-harvested, is brought into the cellar for a natural fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Once bottled, without any filtration, the wine rests for some time before Lorenzo puts it to market. The result is magnificent, with a fantastic mouthfeel and soft approach. Dynamic fresh berry fruit is supported with easy tannins and fresh acidity and is complimented with a touch of fresh earth as well, all leading to a driven and lifted finish.

More About This Wine
Società Agricola Segretum is a remarkably charming small estate in the heart of the Umbrian countryside along the Tiber River Valley. Ready to leave behind their city life, Lorenzo de Monaco and Eileen Holland found this ‘secret’ spot (La Segreta) in 2009 and purchased about 30 hectares of land that would be planted with just over 5 hectares of indigenous grapes, as well as olive groves and a lovely agriturismo. Sincere respect for the land means everything is done by hand, with extreme dedication to the local traditions, and all of the crops that they harvest are certified organic to give extra regimen to their practices. At around 300 meters above sea level, the perfect Mediterranean climate suits their southwest-facing slope of vines perfectly for around 12,000 bottles annually, made mainly from the esteemed Sangiovese grape.
