Magnificence in Montefalco:
2016 Bea Sagrantino di Montefalco Pagliaro

Posted by Joe Salamone

When you catch Bea's Pagliaro firing on all cylinders, it's a magical bottle.

Few wines deliver the mysterious depth and sheer soulfulness that Pagliaro does. In Bea's hands, the burly tannins and power of the Sagrantino grape assumes an astonishing nuance, delicacy, and elegance.

There's a wildness and yet something undeniably noble about the wine. 

The 2016 exemplifies just how multifaceted, saturating, and simultaneously agile this bottle can be. It 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.

There's really not much more left to be said. Bea has long stood as one of the cult figures of Italy and has been a fixture at Crush since we opened our doors. Bea has a unique touch with Sagrantino.
