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 Read more »

  • Bea Sagrantino di Montefalco 2003

    Snoothrank:

    The 2003 Paolo Bea, Sagrantino di Montefalco showed a gorgeous deep red crimson color in the glass. As I poured, an aroma of candied cherry filled the air. With a little time in the glass, the rich fruit transformed into a Burgundian expression of red fruit with earth and clay. Dusty dried flowers filled out the bouquet and, as a few tasters not...

  • Paolo Bea Montefalco Rosso Vigna San Valentino 2004

    Snoothrank:

    After decanting for 3+ hours.dusty nose, filled with spice, glove, and bright fruits, yet subtle. Strawberry and cherry fruit are at the core of this wine. A hint of oak comes in at the entry but integrate well. The fruit and flavors have great length and class. Days later, the taste still linger. Read More

  • Umbria Bianco Arboreus Paolo Bea 2004

    Snoothrank:

    VA on the nose is joined by pine, anise seed, roast pork, hoisin, even a touch of lychee. Very aromatic but that hairpray volatility can be off-putting to some. Nice balanced palate with a rich, seductive feel and a nice, perfumy inner mouth presence that gets drawn out on the long finish. This is delicious. 93pts Read More

  • Paolo Bea Sagrantino Sagrantino di Montefalco Passito 1999

    Snoothrank:

    Floral and a bit porty on the nose with hints of cedar and raspberry jam. Medium ruby color and deceptively light causing you to expect something lean and dry but then on your first sip you're hit with intense, sweet fig, candied ginger and chocolate. The sweetness is not overwhelming and perfectly balanced with fruit and acidity, leaving you w... Read More

  • Paolo Bea Montefalco Sagrantino 2003

    Snoothrank:

    Solid - a bit tannic, but lots of black fruit, tobacco, coffee notes. Not as good as 2001 vintage, but a strong wine. Read More
