Paolo Bea Santa Chiara Umbria Bianco IGT 2011
Juicy, ripe, and opulent, the 2011 Santa Chiara floods the senses with flavor notes and palate textures. Sun-warmed stone fruits, salted caramel, jasmine flowers, and orange zest play with background notes of white tea, truffles, and hazelnuts in this bewitching skin-contact wine. You’ll find surprising silky tannins on the back end, thrumming acidity, satisfying minerality, and a lingering, meditative finish in this gorgeous bottling of Paolo Bea’s most age-worthy white.
