2021 Freghino 1L
The Freghino is Segretum’s ‘largest’ production wine, with just over 12,000 bottles made. The blend that comes from their organic estate vines is 70% Sangiovese, 20% Colorino, and 10% Malvasia Nera, and after being hand-harvested is brought into the cellar for a natural fermentation in stainless steel tanks with only 10 to 12 days with skins before the grapes are pressed and then continue. The resulting wine rests and ages for about 9 months in used French oak, and is then placed back into stainless steel to integrate a bit further without the presence of wood for 6 more months. Once bottled, without any filtration, the wine rests for some time before Lorenzo puts it to market. The result is magnificent, with a fantastic fresh mouth feel and soft approach. Dynamic bright berry fruit is supported with easy tannins and clean acidity, and is complimented with a touch of fresh earth as well, all leading to a driven and lifted finish.
