Paolo Bea Montefalco Sagrantino Secco Cerrete 2011
In acknowledgment of its stature, Giampiero gives it one additional year in large Slavonian oak, making for an astonishing five-year elevage before the requisite long resting period in Bea's perfectly dark, cool, subterranean bottle cellar. The 2011 is a materpiece, more flamboyant and layered than the relatively restrained 2010. With a soaring nose of garrique, deep red fruits and warm stones, it displays an incredible integration of its elements on the palate, which is ultra-concentrated yet elegant.
