2015 Paolo Bea Rosso de Veo. Montefalco Umbria-ITALY

 

Tasting Notes: The Paolo Bea Rosso De Veo is 100% Sagrantino from Bea's youngest vines principally from the “Cerrete” vineyard which graces the highest point in Montefalco, between 1300 and 1500 feet above sea level. This unfiltered, natural red wine is dark and brooding, with spicy edges and a core of black and red fruits, wet soil, and a ripe, tannic finish. Made from the estate’s youngest Sagrantino vines, Rosso de Véo derives mostly from the Cerrete vineyard, the highest point of Bea’s estate at about 1,300-1,500 feet above sea level. Bea vinifies the de Véo in the same fashion as its Montefalco Sagrantino--a painstaking multi-step process that includes a 40-50 day cuvaison, a year of aging in stainless steel, two years in oak barrels, and another year in bottle before release.
