Montefalco Rosso Riserva “Pipparello”, made from Sangiovese, Sagrantino and Montepulciano, silky, warm, vibrant. A deep garnet colour, with warm, earthy, chocolatey, animal aromas and a core of sweet blackberries. It has a lovely silky mouthfeel, and a long finished speckled with minerals. It’s vibrant and intense – exactly what you’d expect from this esteemed winemaker. This wine spends 2 years in barrel before bottling. Only 700 cases of this wine were produced, so it is a truly artisan product.

Sagrantino is World Class and Paolo Bea is surely the king of this wine of Kings.

A real artisan producer making organic hand-crafted wines. References in the archive of Montefalco, a beautiful Umbrian hill town (aren’t they all?), document the presence of the Bea family in this region as early as 1500. This tiny estate is the classic Italian Fattoria, producing wine, raising farm animals for trade and home consumption and working the land to produce olives, fruits and vegetables. Paolo Bea, the senior member of the family, is the guiding force behind the production of these intensely pure wines, assisted by his son, Giuseppe, who farms the vineyards and Giampero who looks after the vinification. No herbicides or pesticides are used at Paolo Bea. He believes that wine is an expression of nature and looks forward to the differences in each harvest. The wines are produced in the traditional way; grapes are hand-picked and bottled without filtration.Complex, profound, yet a sheer delight to drink, Paolo Bea Sagrantino is a seminal moment in anyone's wine drinking experience.
