Paolo Bea

San Valentino Sangiovese Blend 2011

Paolo Bea never ceases to amaze me. The 2011 San Valentino is gorgeous, showing an Autumnal persona, with a bouquet of crushed cherry, plum, and blood orange, giving way to notes of sweet mint, licorice, crushed fall leaves and black tea. On the palate, I found a zesty expression, sporting light yet energetic textures, as citrus-kissed sour cherry, sweet herbal tones and spice filled the senses. The finish was medium-long and literally thirst quenching, with mouthwatering acidity accentuating it's red fruits and lingering inner floral tones which faded slowly. An amazing "entry level" wine. #paolobea #montefalco #sagrantino — 2 years ago
