Paolo Bea, Umbria, Arboreus, Trebbiano Bianco2012
Received in Original Carton
This brilliant white from the legendary Paolo Bea estate is made from a regional version of Trebbiano called "Spoletino." The wine spends four years on the lees, giving it a golden hue and fleshy complexity. Dry, full-bodied, and with striking minerality, here the vines are trained high off the ground, a technique that was meant to leave room to plant other crops underneath. The wine takes his name from the Italian work for tree, "albero."
