Magnificence in Montefalco:
2012 Bea Sagrantino Pagliaro

Posted by Joe Salamone

Bea's Sagrantino Pagliaro is one of the most compelling wines to be found in all of Italy.

It's a view that seems to be widely shared. Every time that we offer Bea's Pagliaro, we brace ourselves for a flood of orders.

There's a magic to Bea that's easy to get obsessed with. Few wines deliver the mysterious depth and sheer soulfulness that Pagliaro does. Year after year, it's one of the most singular and fascinating wines that we taste.

What makes Pagliaro so special? You can't exactly put your finger on it. There's a wildness and yet something undeniably noble about the wines.

The 2012 exemplifies just how multifaceted, saturating and simultaneously agile this bottle can be. This is a triumph of jam-packed complexity. It covers a mindboggling amount of ground from dark fruits to spice to floral notes. All delivered with finesse and seamless harmony.

Bea has been a fixture at Crush since we opened our doors. The 1996 and 2001 have assumed legendary status. We get excited each time that we have a new vintage to offer.
