Umbrian dialect for “teenager”, Freghino is our classic everyday wine and perfect by-the-glass. Once opened, our 1 liter can sit happily on your shelf for at least a week. It’s a lighter blend of Sangiovese (70%), Colorino (20%) and Malavasia Nera (10%) grapes, hand picked during mid harvest. The grapes perform alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel tanks. After 9 days of maceration on its skins, the wine continues ageing in stainless steel before its release about 9 months later. Freghino is still true to it’s Sangiovese roots, but a lighter, easy drinking red. We currently do not ship Freghino from our cantina.

Medium-bodied, with wild berries and medium tannins.

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.
