Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
Complex, interesting, compelling and surprising. the ’08 Paolo Bea Sagrantino di Montefalco Passito is not a wine that you can relegate to any one category. Bright garnet in the glass, this mono-varietal Sagrantino wafts with juicy cherries and dried berries, warm cigar wrapper, saline minerals, grilled herbs, balsamic and a kiss of citrus zest. At once sweet and savory, this ’08 Sagrantino di Montefalco Passito holds the palate in delicious tension; it’s a pure, energetic, complicated expression of Sagrantino, and it could only come from Umbria’s master. 2008’s wet weather imbued Bea’s Sagrantino with botrytis; Bea let the grapes dry for a few weeks, concentrating their sugars and flavors, and then let them ferment with skin contact for 39 days before aging for almost three years on the lees in stainless steel, and bottling the wine almost five years after harvest. Just 200 cases made.
