Paolo Bea Sangiovese Blend Umbria IGT San Valentino 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

This 2006 Paolo Bea “San Valentino” red wine from Umbria is the best value in Montefalco. While it’s definitely a more fruit driven wine it’s still light in weight. We fancy it the lighter version of Bea’s Montefalco Riservas. Cherry fruit jumps from the glass with the typical notes of leather and tar that accompany all the wines from this region. It’s not going to age as well as some Montefalco so consider drinking it sometime within the next 5 years.

As a child, I learned this craft from my father. Our history and tradition is the source of our knowledge and inspiration. Today, my family is here with me, all working together. Our roots in Montefalco trace back to the 1500's, as documents in the village archives attest to. Through passion sustained and encouraged by my sons, Giuseppe and Giampiero, and also by the irreplaceable presence of Marina, my wife and mother of my children, our family has come to appreciate each other in more profound ways, each day relishing the fruits of our labor at our table. With each passing year, I better understand our land, respecting and caring for it... and at the end of each year extract from it a wine which is totally unique, continually developing, improving, and sustaining our health. With an ever growing conviction, we practice, discover, and appreciate natural winemaking methods that exclude the use of chemicals in the vineyard and artificial stabilizing techniques in the winery. Each season is a new discovery, a chance to apply and evaluate knowledge we have gained in previous years. Read less

We recently had this wine with a fantastic dinner at Spadaro Ristorante in New Rochelle, NY. Wonderful!

A rustic, earthy red from Umbria. Hearty stews, casseroles and grilled meats are this wine's best companions - wild boar would be perfect.

<p>Pale for a red wine, this wine is surprisingly dry and woody, which are usually associated with darker reds. A very balanced flavor that harmonizes with subtle notes of sweetness and oak from the barrels in which it is matured. Great with red meat, pasta, and cheese.&nbsp;</p>
