About The Wine
This towering and impressive red blend is a classic Montefalco Rosso combo of Sangiovese, Montepulciano, and Sagrantino.
The Bea family are household names in Italian natural wine circles, with winemaker Giampiero Bea taking a minimalist, hands-off approach in both the vineyard and the winery. There are no synthetic treatments used on the vines, with biodynamic practices used throughout. Native yeasts are used in the fermentation, with ageing taking place for four months in stainless steel tanks, and just under four years in old Slavonian oak foudres.
Bottled unfiltered and unfined, with only minimal sulphites.

The Bea family has roots in the town of Montefalco, Umbria that go back to the sixteenth century, which means they've had plenty of practice in making outstanding wines using traditional methods.
Paolo Bea is the figurehead of the Bea estate today, having learnt to grow vines and make wine from his father. He works with his sons Giampiero and Giuseppe, as well as his wife Marina, to sustainably care for eleven hectares of vineyards without the use of chemical pesticides or herbicides, in harmony with nature around him.
In the winery, winemaker Giampiero Bea also takes a traditional, natural approach, using plenty of skin contact and eschewing any additives except sometimes a dash of sulphur.
