Dreams and passion are the main ingredients of our wines.
Technique and hard work combine grape varieties, environment and terroir to obtain the special quality expressions of our wines. At the heart of all our commitment is the principle that each and every grape variety achieves its optimum quality expression only in certain environments.
An excellent wine can only be conceived with a holistic work philosophy which begins with vineyard decisions and passes through wine estate work capable of conserving the identity of the grapes.
Our adventure starts in 2009 with the harvest of Sangiovese and Cabernet Franc grapes. From then to now our passion brought us here.
From three vineyards in Chianti Classico, in San Gimignano and in Val di Chiana were born our wines. A few hectares cultivated with great care.
Unmistakable wines have emerged from SecondoCerchio’s philosophy, the best possible expressions of the land they spring from.
“This is a very solid, structured red with blackberry, blueberry and dark-chocolate aromas and flavors. It’s full and layered with ripe fruit and creamy, polished tannins. Very young, but impressive. Give it two or three years to shows its true potential. Drink after 2022.”
James Suckling about Rubis 2017
“A rich red with lots of ripe fruit and toasted oak, giving it a toffee undertone. But I don’t mind it. I like the richness and density to this. Give it a year or two to come around. Better after 2021.”
James Suckling about Catturasogni 2018
“There’s pleasant density and focus to this red with berry and chocolate character. Medium to full body and round tannins. Better in 2021, when the tannins will be more resolved.”
James Suckling about Vento Fermo 2018
“The black-pepper and herbal notes here work very successfully with the dark-cherry, light-eucalyptus and vanilla character. Full-bodied and nicely structured, boasting just the right amount of acidity to balance the plush fruit.”
James Suckling about Catturasogni 2016
“Dried raspberries, strawberries, cedar and dust. Full-bodied and quite juicy with edgy, clear-cut tannins and a dash of refreshing acidity. Chewy on the finish.”
James Suckling about Rubis 2016
“A firm, tight red with dark-berry, coffee and cedar aromas and flavors. Medium body. Medium-chewy tannins and a flavorful finish.”
James Suckling about Vento Fermo 2015
“Dried red cherries, red plums, cherry cake and cedar. Medium-bodied and lightly tannic, this is an elegant and quite sophisticated wine to drink now.”
James Suckling about Canto dell’Acqua Chianti Classico Riserva 2016
“Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Sangiovese.
Deep, almost impenetrable ruby. Opulent nose of dark fruit with a hint of liquorice powder. Plenty of sweet fruit framed by firm tannins and with a chocolate hint on the finish. Long and with freshness and tanginess coming from the Sangiovese component of this blend.”
Walter Speller about Catturasogni 2016
“75% Sangiovese, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon. Aged for 14–16 months in barrique.
Deep, lustrous ruby. Nutty, sweet tobacco and dark-fruit nose with malty hints. There is the beginning of undergrowth, but with aeration opens up to sweet, dark fruit. Supple and succulent palate that is elegant rather than powerful – as normally you would expect of these ‘Supertuscans’. Fine, coating tannins that stick to the palate. Has a refreshing quality to it.”
Walter Speller about Rubis 2016
“A rosato made of Sangiovese, Pinot Noir and Syrah.
Pale strawberry pink. Sweet and leesy with a note of fruit drops. Ripe strawberry fruit with good acidity and much dryer than last year’s version. A good all-rounder. ”
Walter Speller about Archè 2018
“Mid to deep ruby. Perfumed sour-cherry nose with a sweetly perfumed, candied top note. Sappy, concentrated cherry fruit on the palate with quite a bit of firm tannins. The heat and the ripeness of the 2015 vintage shine through with hints of dried fruit and cinnamon of the oak. Bags of chewy tannins and tangy fruit on the finish. Proper Riserva quality.”
Walter Speller about Canto dell’Acqua 2016
“Mid ruby. Deep, sweet red-fruit nose with a hint of cocoa dusting. Ripe, sweet and concentrated red-fruit palate that possesses more oomph than your regular Chianti but lacks a little the tanginess of proper Sangiovese. ”
Walter Speller about Il Principe 2017
“90% Sangiovese, 10% Chardonnay. The base wine stays on the lees for at least four months before it is filled in bottle where it undergoes the secondary fermentation. […].
Pale salmon, and extra praise for this blend dominated by Sangiovese. And it shows on the nose too, with stalky, sweet cherry fruit with lemony notes. Little autolysis notes which is a good thing, and with a fine lasting prickle on the tongue […]”
Walter Speller su “Nove” Spumante Metodo Classico
“Dried red cherries, cedar, nutmeg and herbs. Medium body, some really pretty acidity and a fine finish. Drink now. ”
James Suckling about Rubis 2014
“Bright essence-like notes of blackcurrants and blackberries with vanilla and spices. Full body, plenty of oozing dark fruit and a medium-chewy finish. Drink now. ”
James Suckling about Catturasogni 2014
“A tight and focused rosé with cantaloupe, sliced apples and some orange-peel character. Medium-bodied and soft yet fresh. A delicious finish. A blend of sangiovese, pinot nero and syrah. Drink now. ”
James Suckling about Archè 2017
“A vivid red with dark berry, hints of chocolate and hazelnut. Medium to full body, silky and a fresh tannis and a fresh finish. MAde from blend of sangiovese, merlot and cabarnet franc. Drink or hold.”
James Suckling about Catturasogni 2013
“Plenty of blackberry, walnut and cocoa powder follow throgh to a medium body, firm and silky tannins and a flavorful finish. Drink now.”
James Suckling about Rubis 2009
“[…] alta qualità grazie a: corposità, bouquet, lunghezza, eleganza, piacevolezza e armonia in tutti i suoi componenti.”
The WineHunter about Catturasogni 2013
“Concentrated ruby. Supple, tangy dark fruit. Straightforward, appetising and with chewy tannins and quite a bit of flirtatious oak. ”
Walter Speller about Catturasogni 2014
“Dark ruby. Rich nose of sweet fruit and fruitcake and already showing some development. Sweet, concentrated and long and with good acidity. Quite attractive and with polished tannins and at its peak now, while the dry tannins begin to shine through. ”
Walter Speller about Rubis 2009
Lustrous ruby. Leafy hints over a concentrated cherry fruit nose. Tangy yet rich fruit with a layer of ripe tannings. More concentration but less intriguing than the 2014 version.”
Walter Speller about Catturasogni 2013
“Baileys and black fruit nose, and concentrated black fruit and pannacotta on the palate, but the fruit manages to take over on the finish. […]”
Walter Speller about Rubis 2014
“Very pale salmon. Perfumed cherry nose and fresh cherry and lemon fruit on the palate […]. ”
Walter Speller about Archè 2017
” […] blend of Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet franc immediately strikes for his intense ruby color that floods the glass. The olfactory test introduces us a very intense wine, elegant, complex, where the red ripe fruit – currant and sour black cherry above the rest – are followed by faded violet, chocolate, so much licorice and a final balmy note. The taste proposes a round and full-bodied wine, immediately shows a good acidity and silky tannins that well balance the soft components of the wine. […] persistent, intense, elegant, in retro-olfactory phase still reveal mature fruits, balmy feelings and licorice; this wine fascinates for his complexity and freshness; will be interesting also to reassess it in a few years.”
