Paolo Bea Montefalco Rosso Riserva Pipparello 2017 750ml
- Other Reds, Sagrantino, Sangiovese
The Paolo Bea Montefalco Rosso Riserva Pipparello focuses on Umbrian Sangiovese grown at 400 meters of altitude on soils of gravel and clay. This is decidedly a wild and earthy expression of this noble grape, blended with 25% Montepulciano, and 15% Sagrantino, into a wine of deep aromatic elegance with a pleasing farm-fresh vegetal sense of umami and a refreshing hint of salinity. The palate is dense, with a potent direction towards ripe cherries and refined tannins that extend the finish. Elegance is again the key word here, with a balance that hints at the long life ahead.
