2015 Paolo Bea Montefalco Rosso San Valentino Classic Fattoria
Hypo-Rama From Everywhere
February 18, 2021
We can trace the Bea family in the beautiful hilltop village of Montefalco back to 1500. To this day the small estate is run as a classic Italian Fattoria. All of the grapes are estate grown. Animals are raised for both commercial and domestic use. The rest of the land is devoted to olive trees and crops. Everything the family needs they grow themselves. We can say that this extraordinary connection to the land makes the Paolo Bea estate magical.
Paolo is an icon of great wine. The various reds and whites he produces are unlike any in the world. For today’s offer, we have chosen the 2015 Paolo Bea Montefalco Rosso San Valentino. This is a single vineyard blend of Sangiovese, Montepulciano, and Sagrantino grapes. These are high elevation vines that are fifty years old and harvested in late October.
Paolo runs the place while son Giuseppe tends to the vineyards and son Giampiero helps in the cellar and runs the commercial side of the business. Our allocations for Paolo Bea are usually tiny. This time we have enough to let you try it.
2015 Paolo Bea Montefalco Rosso San Valentino: Deep ruby. A whirlwind of aromatics from dark cherry to Indian spice and sandalwood. Intense, complex, and balanced, one of those wines that you just keep going back for more. Outstanding 59/bottle
Special six pack: 6 bottles of the above for a special price of $318 (53/btl)
Special case: 12 bottles of the above for a special price of $599 (49.91/btl)
Wine arrives later this week
