It’s been a while since I opened one of these and I had a hankering for some Bea so, why not? My last bottle of the 2011. Popped and poured. On the nose, this is already better than the last bottle I had of this vintage back in 2018. The VA is there...but it's judicious and charming. A stellar combo of spiced brambles, spiced cherries, celery root, nondescript dried dark fruits, and cinnamon. Quite exotic and utterly compelling in the way you want and have come to expect from Paolo Bea. The finish was long and so sexy. A little age has been good for the 2011. A lovely, lovely version of young vine Sagrantino. Bottle No. 244/6645.

Big and burly but light on its feet with a nice acidic lift on the finish—built more like a linebacker than a lineman. (Those of you who actually know football feel free to adjust the metaphor as necessary.) Dark red cherries, dried herbs, smoked meat and spice. Very nice but unfortunately doesn’t deliver much value given the lofty price

A massive departure from the Tenuta della Terre Nere Rosso that we started the evening with. Loads of dark cherry, brambles, and spiced meat. The aromas were wild. I was also picking up some volatile acidity but it really helped give some lift the massive amount of fruit. On the palate, more dark fruits, spices and dried herbs. Lip smacking finish. Bottle No. 0000213

First time having a wine from Bea. The age has been good to this, in a nice place tonight and a fun one to try alongside tagine and a steak at Boulud sud. Quite luscious and slightly wild and rustic. Not sure I would have placed it here in particular but tasty wine with robust tannins and acid to keep it all together.

A Viking grandpa, greets the palate like a big warrior demanding to be taken seriously. Kind of rough, but you don’t want to argue with him. Then he sits down, gives you a hug, and is sweet in the end. Thank you, Viking Grandpa.
