2018 Monastero Suore Cistercensi 'Benedic' Sangiovese Ciliegiolo Blend

The Monastero Suore wines are just drinkable, simple and incredibly honest wines. There is nothing overly complex or original about the wine, it merely strips things back to basics with no additions, natural fermentation and no preservatives. The blend is Sangiovese and Ciliegiolo . Earthy, liquorice and tobacco vibes. Does have spring edge to it with a fair amount of floral taste. It's not a powerful red, but impossible to dislike.

2018 Monastero Suore Cistercensi 'Benedic' Sangiovese Ciliegiolo 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.
