Paolo & his sons, Arboreus Paolo Bea
NEW ENTRY !!
GRAPE: Trebbiano Spolentino
REGION: Montefalco, Umbria
GOOD TO KNOW: 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. Paolo and his wife, Marina, began in the seventies with a philosophy that is becoming popular but was then radical: make wine with grapes…only grapes…and grapes grown with biodynamic agricultural methods! 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, is the guiding force behind the production of this series of intense and respectful of the terroir and environment wines. Paolo is assisted by his two sons, Giuseppe and Giampiero. ARBOREUS is made from Trebbiano Spoletino grape with long maceration with the skins! Only 3000 bottles are produced annually.
TASTE: layers of flavor, both intense and mellow, unfold on the palate, combining savory saline elements with fruit in many forms: fresh, baked, preserved, and candied, all underpinned by an intense spiciness. Few wines of any color or methodology achieve this level of wild majesty
