Montefalco Rosso

Paolo Bea

Riserva Pipparello Montefalco Rosso Sangiovese Blend 2012

Exuding savory and meaty elements, all wrapped up in sexy and abundant black fruit. Roasted black cherry, soaked plum, beef jerky, hoisin, truffle, animal hide, hung meat, clove, Ceylon cinnamon, Indian spices, wilted flowers, tar, sweet wood smoke, scrubland, baked earth. Tannins are granular, powerful, but have a texture is forgiving as they drive down the middle palate. I’m a sucker for these wines. Wild, soulful, unapologetic and true. — 8 days ago

@Josh Morgenthau it’s their best wine in my opinion. And yes my dog (named Bea 😆) always wants a glass!

Pagliaro Secco Montefalco Sagrantino 2011

This is the real deal. Deep deep fruit, black cherries and blackberries and plums BUT totally lifted too with some floral mystery- violets? Spice and concentration. Little acetone and sweetness. Sensual but still harsh. Needs much more time. But seriously incredible wine. So intense and pure. And clean. Excited to see where this will go. — 21 days ago

Umbria Montefalco La Gaita Del Falco Rosso

Pleasantly surprised. The red blend they produce I had a few days ago was pretty tannins. This one was a bit more restrained. Had some spice to this soft wine. Nice black fruit. — 4 days ago

Montefalco Sagrantino

Luxurious for lack of a better word. Pear 🍐& pineapple 🍍. Silky. Juicy & acidic (I think high but Scott thinks balanced). Drinking w/o food but would be great w/ oysters/raw bar. — 21 days ago

Rosso de Véo Umbria Rosso Sagrantino 2012

WHOAH!! First time ive tried Sagrantino...big bold, baked red/black fruits, acid solid, and tannins ultra high, hard to separate gums from teeth. Those savory notes and Italian VA, with black creatiing delicious wine with some food.. — 2 hours ago

9.4

Gorgeous nose. Big ripe red and black berry fruits, cassis, almost liquer like, floral, dark, earthy, perfumed, gorgeous. Palate is massive, brawny, big, dense with those sagrantino tannins. Wow. Awesome. Sweet fruit and lingering tannins and huge dry extract. Needs brontosaurus.

wAyyyy better after 2 hours. Tannins more velvety but still big. More harmony on the nose. Lovely. Really elegant. Killer.

Montefalco Sagrantino 2000

Maybe not the greatest wine ever but with all the tannins resolved and 20 years on its back it is a throughoutly enjoyable everyday wine. — 17 days ago

Rosso Viola Lambrusco 2018

I used to drink Linni Lambrusco (& I still will) but once I found this in my local wine shop....Dry dry but with a lovely raspberry mousse flavor, a sharp acidity. A well constructed bottle too, w foil wrapping beneath the capsule. And goes with most food- thyme scented beef lasagna from the farmers market in this case. — 7 days ago
