Paolo Bea 2018 'Rosso de Veo' Rosso, Umbria, Italy

Bea’s “Rosso de Veo” (Veo is how family’s name is pronounced in the old Umbrian dialect) 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. It is vinified similarly to Bea's single-vineyard Sagrantino offerings, with long macerations and time in cask.

  • Winemaker: Paolo Bea
  • Farming: Organic
  • Variety: 100% Sagrantino
  • Terroir: From multiple sloped parcels surrounding Montefalco, primarily the Cerrete vineyard, which sits at the village's highest point. Limestone-clay and pebbles, cordon-trained, vines are younger plants excluded from other Sagrantino bottlings.
  • Vinification: Hand harvested, after crushing and destemming, wine ferments spontaneously in stainless steel tanks. Cuvaision lasts 40-50 days. Pressed in vertical basket presss, with 12 months on less. ML is spontaneous.
  • Aging:  12 months in stainless-steel tanks followed by 24 months in large, Slavonian oak botti. Unfined, unfiltered, no added sulfur with 40-55mg/l total sulfur.
