Paolo Bea Sagrantino di Montefalco Passito 2007 375ml
Paolo Bea Sagrantino di Montefalco Passito 2007 375ml
In Stock
Price: $102.99

Concentrated, lush, and a little nervy, Bea’s ’07 Sagrantino di Montefalco Passito explodes with ripe blue and black fruits, warm chocolate, plum compote, raspberry jam, maple syrup, peppery herbs, and warm earth. Vibrant acidity ushers this semi-sweet dessert wine across the palate as chewy tannins cling to the cheeks; textured and supple, this Sagrantino Passito is a triumph. At once sweet and savory, this Passito-style wine holds the palate in delicious tension; it’s a pure, energetic, complicated expression of Sagrantino, and it could only come from Umbria’s master. 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. more info
