Umbria Bianco IGT "Santa Chiara Vigneto Pagliaro", Paolo Bea 2008

Out of this world goodness and richness! Is this really a white? A blend of Grechetto, Malvasia, Chardonnay, Sauvignon, and Garganega from vines organically grown at a high elevation of 1,300 feet in the Pagliaro vineyard on the hills of Montefalco. Over two weeks maceration on the skins and aging on the lees for a year without temperature control and without addition of sulphites in the vinification. The result is dazzling extraction. Amber color. Deliciously textured with tannins. Deep flavors of ripe red apples, stone fruits, minerals, and celery spice. Crunchy, vibrant, and fresh. Intense and long on the finish. Wonderful sensations!

"The 2008 Santa Chiara is a gorgeous wine. Sweet spices, orange peel and ripe fruit come together beautifully in this rich, expansive white. The finish is long and impeccable. Santa Chiara is a blend of equal parts Grechetto, Malvasia, Sauvignon, Garganega and Sauvignon, which were co-fermented for 15 days. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2017." 91/100 Antonio Galloni, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
