2017 Monastero Suore Cistercensi 'Coenobium' White Blend

Lazio, Italy

If you've had Coenobium before, this batch has quite a bit of effervescence when opening. The blend is Trebbiano 45%, Malvasia del Lazio 35% and Verdicchio 20%. The scent is delicate and mineral like. The taste is very fresh, floral and savoury. Easy drinking. Produced at this monastery north of Rome, under the guidance of a wine family, around 80 sisters tend to the organic vineyard without machinery and follow natural winemaking principles.

2017 Monastero Suore Cistercensi 'Coenobium' White Blend
About the maker

An hour drive from Rome, you will find a monastery, opened in 1957, with now around 80 sisters who live by the principle of pray and work; tending to vineyards and making exceptional wine.

The sisters have been organically farming their five hectares of vines for decades, but it wasn't until Giampiero Bea began consulting to them in the early 2000s that their wines gained a larger audience. Today their wines are a huge hit, they have a cult like following and sell out shortly after releasing. The vineyards, orchards and gardens are cultivated organically and without the use of machinery. The wines are made with low-intervention practices and naturally occuring yeasts.
