Toscana Ciliegiolo 2015

My first single varietal Ciliegiolo! (Normally a Tuscan blending grape). Dark plum and black cherry fruit aromas and flavors. Hints of smoked meat, grilled herbs, fresh tilled soil and iodine. Smooth tannins and easy to drink. Bold, Dense and Interesting. Revisited in September 2021. Fresh and fruit forward. Great starter wine. — 3 years ago

Monastero Suore Cistercensi

Benedic Red Blend 2019

Unpretentious, easy-drinking blend of Sangiovese and Ciliegiolo by Paolo Bea - benchmark producer of natural wines - and the nuns at the Cistercian monastery in Vitorchiano in Lazio (coenobium is the Latin for monastery). Fermented with wild yeasts. Pale, slightly cloudy cherry color. Red fruit (cherry, strawberry jam) aromas and flavors. Earthy and floral notes and a hint of tobacco and herbs. Fruit-forward, medium bodied, great acidity. Nice rusticity. Very pleasant — 3 years ago
