Paolo Bea Sagrantino di Montefalco Secco Pagliaro 2010

Out of stock

We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

Pure, transparent red and blue fruits dance on a bed of tarry earth, pencil lead, peppery herbs, crushed violets, and baking spices in this classically styled '10 Sagrantino Secco Pagliaro. Burly tannins hold the tongue in a steely grip, but a sweet inner perfume and kinetic acidity show that this wine has the structure for serious aging. Bea's flagship Sagrantino bottling always needs a few years in the cellar, and that's especially true for this 2010--time will tame this wine to make a beauty from a tannic beast! The jewel in the crown of Umbria, this mono-varietal Sagrantino macerates for an incredible 48 days; the wine ages in stainless steel for one year, two years in barrels, followed by a year in bottle. Paolo Bea is a standard bearer of Sagrantino, and the estate's flagship wine consistently delivers terrific complexity and great longevity.
