PAOLO BEA 2007 MONTEFALCO "ROSSO DE VEO"

WINE ADVOCATE 93 POINTS - "Complex and expressive, the Sagrantino-based 2007 Rosso de Veo is a truly mesmerizing wine with infinite layers that evolve swirl after swirl, minute after minute as the wine takes on air. Each time you come back to the glass, it tells a different story. Even if you are not a fan of this style, there is no denying that this wine speaks in a clear, confident voice. Immediate aromas include black olive, leather, tobacco and dried berry. Balsam herb, licorice and ginger settle in later. The 2007 vintage is no doubt one of the nicest I have tasted."

Rosso de Veo is a selection of the Bea estate's younger Sagrantino vines, principally from the "Cerrete" vineyard which graces the highest point in Montefalco, between 1300 and 1500 feet above sea level. The soil is clay and limestone infused with small pebbles from an ancient riverbed. This wine is vinified in a similar fashion to the single vineyard Sagrantino with a long cuvaison which extends forty to fifty days. The wine is then aged one year in stainless steel tanks, two years in large oak barrels and another year in bottle before release. The wine is not filtered.
