Agri Segretum Pottarello comes from the predominant mix of local grapes at the farm. The Sangiovese is particularly selected from a portion of the estate’s vines where the clusters are thinner and have much smaller berries, and lead to a bit more extraction of color and intensity of flavor for the final wine. The grapes are handpicked and brought to the cellar for a natural fermentation in stainless steel, where punch-downs occur regularly. After primary fermentation completes, the wine is transferred to mostly all used 500L French Tonneau for 12 months where it ages before an unfiltered bottling. Another 9 months of rest in the bottle before release gives the final wine extra time to integrate and come together for a gorgeously structured red. The finished wine showcases lovely fresh berry fruit, touches of spice, a lively dance between acid and tannin, and a long balanced finish for this full-bodied Umbrian red.

About Agricola Segretum

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. A 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 20,000 bottles annually, made mainly from the esteemed Sangiovese grape.
