Coenobium Ruscum 2018
The Cistercian Sisters of Monastero Suore Cistercensi reside and work in Vitorchiano, a little town about 90 minutes north of Rome in the Lazio province. Eighty women from this religious order work naturally in vineyards, orchards, and gardens at this tranquil monastic enclave. They make two wines under Bea's direction that are as honest, empathetic, and generous as they are.
"Coenobium Ruscum" by Monastero Trappiste is a rustic white wine from four local grapes (Trebbiano, Malvasia, Verdicchio, and Grechetto) , obtained by contact with the skins for 15 days. The perfumes are pure and complex with notes of aromatic herbs, wildflowers and yellow fruits. The sip is really balanced and very correspondence, caressed by light tannins and pleasant sapidity. Wines made with Old Style Artisanal Methods.
