Description

Paolo Bea is to Montefalco as Biondi Santi is to Montalcino and Gaja to Piemonte. Bea's wines are the most coveted from the Montefalco region.  Like Gaja, Bea produces wines in "his" style, take it or leave it.  There are a great many fans of the Paolo Bea style that "take it" as evidenced by the scarcity of his wines.  

Dry, supple, full, aromas of vanilla, dried prunes and figs, blackberries. This wine will continue to improve and age for up to 15 years from the initial harvest date.

The 2018 Montefalco Sagrantino Pagliaro needs some time in the glass to open and show it's tremendous depth an complexity.  It awakens with a mentholated blend of crushed blackberries, sage and flowery underbrush. It flows across the palate with ease, silky and round with bright red and black fruits underscored by salty mineral tones and exotic spice. This leaves a balsamic flourish through the finale, along with crunchy tannins that create a push and pull of youthful tension as hints of dried cherries slowly taper off. While stepping lightly, the 2018 is nearly sultry in style, tempting the imagination with what further maturity will bring.
