This enchanting wine's nose bursts with sappy orchard and stone fruits, orange zest, white wildflowers, warm baking spices, honey, bitter almonds, and whiffs of green tea, oxidation, and earth. The surprisingly muscular palate is saturated with dry extract, but lively acidity, silky-fine tannins, and a core of savory minerals keep it supple into its resonant, complex finish. A fantastic complement to a wide range of foods from white meats to hearty seafood to pungent cheeses, Bea's Arboreus Bianco gets its name from pre-phylloxera old-vine Trebbiano Spoletino rootstock whose vines are trained into tree-like shapes. The wine's intense flavor comes from its grapes' fermenting on the skins for 23 days and the wine aging in stainless steel, sitting on its lees, for more than two years before bottling.

Bea, Paolo Description

Situated in the heart of Umbrian wine country, Paolo Bea is the quintessential artisanal producer. Bea's credo is "Nature should be observed, listened to and integrated, not dominated. Wine is not made by man but generated by nature!"An estate founded more than 400 years ago, family owned-and-operated Paolo Bea dedicates itself to indigenous Umbrian grapes--Grechetto, Malvasia, Gargenega and Trebbiano for its whites, and Montepulciano d'Abruzzo and Sagrantino for its reds. A guiding force in Vini Veri, or in English the "True Wine Group, Italy's natural wine consortium, the estate nurtures its grapes with organic, non-interventionist agriculture, and it continues that reliance on nature in the cellar, crafting its wines without temperature control and without any additives, additional yeasts, fining or filtration. Bea purposefully keeps its production low--so low that demand for its exceptional reds and outrageous whites always exceed supply.
