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.
Rosso de Veo is a selection of the Bea estate’s younger Sagrantino vines, principally from the organic “Cerrete” vineyard which graces the highest point in Montefalco, between 1300 and 1500 feet above sea level. The soil is clay and limestone infused with small pebbles from an ancient riverbed. This wine is vinified in a similar manner to the single vineyard Sagrantino with a long cuvaison which extends forty to fifty days. The wine is then aged one year in stainless steel tanks, two years in large oak barrels and another year in bottle before release.
Dark and inky, this wine still retains a juicy freshness. Dry and well-structured, with notes of red berries. Bottled unfiltered.
