“Bea’s red wines in the 2011 vintage are explosively intense, and the never-exactly-demure “San Valentino” delivers even more firepower and gutsiness than usual. [...] Well-balanced despite its 15% alcohol, its exuberant nose is a maelstrom of Indian spice, black fruits, and sandalwood, with a subtle yet crucial note of volatility—a classic Bea signature—adding lift to the primordial funk. Despite its richness, the palate is kinetic with plenty of acidity and a real sense of energy to the formidable tannins. This is a wine of controlled chaos, an unabashedly wild creation borne of risk and patience, and none of its many historical fans should find it anything less than stupendous. The blend in 2011 is 70% Sangiovese, with 15% each Sagrantino and Montepulciano.”
