About The Wine
Sagrantino is the traditional red wine grape of Montefalco, in Italy's Umbria region. Winemaker Giampiero Bea's family has been making wine in this region for centuries, lovingly and organically caring for vines in harmony with nature.
There's plenty to love here. All those characteristic Sagrantino notes of dark fruit, spice, and game, along with a beautiful tannin structure thanks to more than four years of ageing in old Slavonian oak casks.
Fermented with natural yeasts and macerated on the skins for almost 50 days, the wine is bottled unfined and unfiltered and crafted in a lo-fi, natural style.

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.
