Magnificence in Montefalco: 2015 Bea Sagrantino Pagliaro

Posted by Joe Salamone

Few wines deliver the mysterious depth and sheer soulfulness that Pagliaro does.

For us, Bea's Sagrantino Pagliaro is one of the most compelling wines 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's Pagliaro that's easy to get obsessed with.

It's a magic that, as compelling as it is, you can't exactly put your finger on. There's a wildness and yet something undeniably noble about the wines. Bea has a unique touch with Sagrantino, a grape notorious for its power and burly tannins. In Bea's hands, Sagrantino assumes an astonishing delicacy and elegance.

The 2015 Pagliaro works on a colossal scale with explosive complexity. It's a powerful vintage for the wine, but also one of impressive balance and shocking agility. You get incredibly complicated and nuanced notes of earth, dark fruits, spice, floral notes, and sun-baked herbs.

There's not much left to be said. Bea is one of the long-standing cult figures of Italy. The wines are profoundly individual. The 2015 Pagliaro boldly displays the impact, purity, and bottomless nuance that the wine can offer.
