Paolo Bea 2019 'Lapideus' Trebbiano Spoletino Bianco, Umbria, Italy

Giampiero acquired a parcel of 80-year-old Trebbiano Spoletino in the town of Pigge di Trevi several years back. Arising from a cooler microclimate than the Arboreus above, the wines see similar vinifications, yet one yield markedly different results. Lapideus has a leaner, racier carriage than the broad-shouldered Arboreus, with a more precise sense of acidity. A subtle note of honeyed sweetness at the wine’s core speaks of its warm-climate origins, and Bea’s propensity for wildness reveals itself in a fasci- nating but ephemeral cheese-rind whisper in its aromatics.
