Veneto - Secondo Marco
Marco Speri is the son of Benedetto Speri, the patriarch of one of the legendary winemaking families in Valpolicella. Benedetto worked together with the Bertani family to perfect some of the very 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. Marco’s goal is to make elegant, food-friendly wines by focusing on higher acidity, lower alcohol, and less residual sugar.
By emphasizing his concept of “drinkability,” or creating softer wines that are not harsh and high in alcohol, the end result is a very personal interpretation of the Valpolicella region.
