The pinnacle of Bea's Sagrantino offerings are found in the Cerrete bottling. Cerrete is the highest-altitude vineyard in Montefalco. With its poor, mineral-rich soils and its acidity-preserving altitude, Cerrete yields a wine of power and greater nuance. In acknowledgment of its stature, Giampiero gives it an additional year in large Slavonian oak, making for an astonishing five-year elevage before the requisite long resting period in Bea’s dark, cool cellar. The 2012 is a masterpiece, more flamboyant and layered, yet maintaining the cru’s signature poise. With a soaring nose of garrigue, deep red fruits, and warm stones, it displays an incredible integration of its elements on the palate, which is ultra-concentrated yet elegant.
Organic. Natural and unlike any other Sagrantino!
