The cru Pipparello is situated at 400 meters altitude with soils of gravel and clay, and this bottling displays Bea’s masterful touch with Sangiovese, which achieves a wilder expression here than in neighboring Tuscany. Comprising 60% Sangiovese, 25% Montepulciano, and 15% Sagrantino, the 2017, which spent 40 days on its skins, offers a similar aromatic elegance to the “San Valentino” above, with a sense of umami and a deep salinity. Its palate is massively concentrated yet linear and pure, with refined tannins driving the finish to a remarkable length. It should age effortlessly.
