2015 Paolo Bea Riserva Pipparello (750ml)

Sangiovese from Montefalco, Umbria, Italy

Similarly large-scaled as the San Valentino above, the Pipparello is more overwhelmingly brooding, and even more intense in its concentration. The ultra-savory nose is a thick swamp of cam- phor, black olives, fresh tar, and sandalwood, with pretty hightoned spices lurking in the background. Its palate is arrestingly dense, yet it carries an incredible amount of energy given its overall disposition. This is a rough-and-tumble, wholly uncompromising wine without a polite bone in its body, yet it still manages to be erudite and nuanced—an embodiment of the spirit of the Bea style at its most extreme.
