Paolo Bea

For decades now, the Bea family has worked tirelessly to raise the profile of Umbrian wine; the Sagrantino grape in particular. Paolo began crafting wonderful, authentic wines of terroir decades ago and his son Giampero has successfully taken over the estate. They continue to be some of Italy's most artful and compelling wines.

The focus is on indigenous grapes, specifically the rugged and distinctive Sagrantino. It's a grape with an extraordinarily high number of phenolic compounds, more than almost any other. It can be wild and untamed, but with long maceration times and long aging—in barrel and in bottle, like Bea does—it melds into something exotic and exciting. The name Sagrantino itself most likely derives from the Latin "sagra", or feast, and it is indeed a feast for the senses.
