Description Sub Region Producer Notes
2009 was a ripe vintage in Umbria, and this ’09 Pipparello bursts with cherries, figs and plums, which are accented by licorice, earth, eucalyptus and warm saddle leather, and underlain by savory notes of soy and truffle. Intense yet vibrant, this wine uncurls on the palate to show myriad brooding notes, savory minerals, chewy tannins, and a seamless, velvety mouth-feel that lingers on the persistent finish. This is a wine that marries feral power with undeniable elegance, and it is a terrific complement to meats, truffles, and hard cheeses. Paolo Bea grows its grapes organically, and makes the wine with minimal intervention. A blend of 60% Sangiovese with 25% Montepulciano d'Abruzzo and 15% Sagrantino, Pipparello’s grapes macerate for an unbelievable 42 to 50 days, and then the wine ages in stainless steel for one year, two years in barrels, followed by a year in bottle. Only 700 cases made.
