Type: Red Wine
Paolo Bea started bottling wine in 1980 and has continued his family's tradition of natural winemaking; not using any chemical or artificial intervention in the vineyard or the winery, observing the phases of the moon and respecting nature above all.
The Pipparello vineyard is a hilltop site in Montefalco at 1300 feet above sea level. The soil is clay and gravel. The vines in the Pipparello vineyard are a minimum of 20 years old. Harvest takes place normally during the middle of October. The cuvaison extends for a period between 40 to 50 days. After the alcoholic fermentation, this wine spends a year in stainless steel tanks and then two years in large oak barrels and is released after an additional year of bottle-aging. Unfiltered.
A rich red wine. Dense and structured, with aromas of black olives and blackberries, and notes of wild berries and chocolate.
