Crafted from a blend of Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella, and other indigenous red grapes, the Secondo Marco Valpolicella is manually harvested and gently pressed before fermenting with the skins for about two weeks. It matures for six months in cement tanks, then for an additional six months in 50-hectoliter barrels, followed by three more months of refinement in the bottle before its commercial release.
The wine boasts an intense ruby red color with a fruity bouquet of cherries and amarena, followed by spicy hints and a peppery finish. Its medium-bodied structure and fresh, savory taste make it a versatile pairing for white meats, meat-based recipes, and even tomato-based fish stews. The Secondo Marco Valpolicella Classico is a refined and delicate wine that requires time and palate finesse to fully appreciate its intricate complexity, making it a unique and engaging drinking experience every time.
