Winemaker's Notes:

A blend of 60% Sangiovese, 25% Montepulciano, and 15% Sagrantino grapes, Piparello Riserva is a dry and soft wine, displaying aromas of vanilla, juniper, and minerals. Pairs well with pasta, red meat, and cheese.

About Paolo Bea:

References in the archives of Montefalco, the beautiful hill town in Umbria, document the presence of the Bea family in this locality as early as 1500. This tiny estate is the classic Italian fattoria, producing wine, raising farm animals for trade and home consumption and working the land to produce olives, fruits and vegetables. To this day, the Bea family raises and produces much of what they consume on a daily basis. Paolo Bea, the senior member of the family at 72 years of age, is the guiding force behind the production of this series of intense and idiosyncratic wines. He is assisted by his two sons, Giuseppe, who farms the vineyards, and Giampiero, who assists in the vinification and is responsible for all commercial aspects of the winery.
