品種： 65% Historic native Montefalco vine, 25% Sangiovese, 10% Montepulciano
The current version of Rosso de Veo is a selection of the Bea estate’s younger Sagrantino vines, principally from the ‘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 fashion 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. The wine is not filtered. Production varies depending on vintage.
A bright ruby-red in the glass. Muscular aromas of black cherry, nutmeg, liquorice and bitter herbs. On the palate, full bodied, rich and savoury with beautifully integrated tannins leading to a lingering finish. A truly sylish wine which will keep for a further 10 years. Try with rabbit ragu with artichokes and fava beans, Umbrian frittata with truffles or a chunk of Pecorino cheese.
