(FUMANE – VERONA) Marco Speri chose Fumane to found a company that, with a new vine growing system destined to make history, produces red wines of the caliber of Valpolicella, Ripasso, Amarone, Recioto, all with the classic method and all excellent.
Secondo Marco’s History and Philosophy
There is nothing more normal, in life and obviously also in wine, than the rebellion of young people towards the older generations. It is also a classic in world literature, starting in 1862 with Sergeevič Turgenev’s “Fathers and Sons” and continuing to the present day with, for example, the shout of the band Who in “Talking ’bout my Generation”: “I hope never to grow old. “
Sometimes, however, these breaks occur gently and the separation of the younger generations is painless, agreed, willingly accepted and considered a completely natural and normal phenomenon. How it is looked after for the Marco Speri estate by Marco Speri in Valpolicella. The Speri began to produce wine during the second half of the 19th century, and the company, still very active, can now boast over a century and a half of life.
It was not a trivial matter, but when Marco Speri decided to go it alone he did not create any problems for his family. Instead, as the family immediately declared, referring to the innovation and changes that were carried out: “we are surprised, we don’t understand and we get angry sometimes, but deep down we are proud of it. And we smile the same because that’s how the world goes and tradition changes, if God wants, to become something better. “
Marco Speri chose very well where he wanted to work, in Fumane , the westernmost town of the denomination and home of many important agricultural companies, just to name a few, Allegrini, Corteforte, Valentina Cubi and Le Salette. A high quality area, in short, and Marco Speri brought his precious contribution for the growth with a new system of cultivation of the vines , in the shape of “Y” and aimed to give the grapes more lightness, more circulation of air, and more leaves on top.
The wines of Secondo Marco
That this is not an act of simple rebellion can be seen from the work in the cellar, which, helped by the Tuscan consultant Attilio Pagli (a source that is already an important break with the past), could not be more classic . And the wines, Valpolicella , Ripasso , Amarone , Recioto , are all excellent from the first to the last.
