2018 Monastero Suore Cistercensi 'Benedic' Sangiovese Ciliegiolo Blend

Lazio, Italy

A plump, juicy and drinkable light red. Made from nuns in a Monastery about an hour drive from Rome, the Benedic is made from Sangiovese and Cillegiolo. 2018 was a hot and wet summer leaving the grapes healthy and juicy. The Benedic really shows this off with a jammy and cherry like punch. Medium acidity and despite being fruit forward, she is still pretty dry. 12.5% abv.

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.
