Monastero Suore Cistercensi

Coenobium Ruscum Lazio Bianco Trebbiano Blend 2021


more like a red wine on the nose and palate- very quirky! fruit skin (peach, pear) tannic quality, vegetal (maybe artichoke flavor?) described as roasted fennel. The citrus quality and acid hit differently than a typical white or orange. a fun wine to try with a friend who likes wine. - angela brought this — 24 days ago

Monastero Trappiste Vittorchiano

Coenobium Lazio Bianco Trebbiano Blend 2020

Entry-level white wine from the good sisters of the Monastero Suori Cistercensi in Vitorchiano, under the tutelage of Paolo Bea. Blend of Trebbiano (45%), Malvasia (35%), and Verdicchio (20%) from organically-farmed vines rooted in volcanic soils. Fermented in stainless steel with indigenous yeasts and about 1 week of skin contact. Rich, ripe, complex nose, with aromas of pear skins, apricot, honey and notes of iron and herbs (fennel). Full-bodied, round, quite concentrated. Lovely chalky/mineral texture — a year ago

Monastero Suore Cistercensi

Coenobium Lazio Bianco Trebbiano Blend 2021

Enjoyed with Branzino, sweetbreads w/ morels and truffles, pappardelle…and so much more. Perfectly balanced acidity and sweetness. A bit of barnyard funk. Loved this!! — 10 months ago
