Paolo-Bea-Santa-Chiara-Umbria-2015

Paolo Bea, Santa Chiara (Umbria), 2015

“Made with Grechetto, Malvasia, Garganega, Sauvignon and Chardonnay in equal parts, the 2015 Santa Chiara sees 25 days of skin maceration. The wine opens to a saturated golden color with amber highlights. You definitely smell the waxiness and the power that comes from those grape skins, thanks to layers of honeycomb, sun-dried apricot and candied orange peel. This is a full-bodied white wine that could pair with foods better suited to reds. The finish offers dusty tannins and a touch of bitter astringency.”
