A real artisan producer making organic hand-crafted wines. References in the archive of Montefalco document the presence of the Bea family in this region 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. Paolo Bea, the senior member of the family, is the guiding force behind the production of these intensely pure wines, assisted by his son, Giuseppe, who farms the vineyards and Giampero who looks after the vinification. No herbicides or pesticides are used at Paolo Bea. He believes that wine is an expression of nature and looks forward to the differences in each harvest.

Dense ruby red in colour, the nose is complex with aromas of small red fruits, mineral, spices, vanilla, juniper and leather. The palate is opulent, intense, dynamic and mineral with velvety tannins.
