Terrific white blend with some skin contact… but not really an orange wine. Wide range of food pairing options.

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

Golden, almost amber hues show prominently on this medium bodied beauty. Surprisingly though, this is a very shy wine. Despite it being a 2020 it took quite some time to open up and show its true colors. Tepid at first, this wine really evolved, opening up with a bold nose of cumquat and prominent citrus, with an undercurrent of lemon and lime florals, with a hint of salty wet sand towards the end. The palate has notes of pear, star fruit, and fresh but underripe peach, with a finish that’s somewhat vegetal and again, underripe. The finish is surprisingly lingering, with a spine of acidity that tinges the palate for a while after the first sip, with a delicate and fresh effervescence on the top of the tongue. It definitely grew on me, but it’s not overly memorable.

Floral upfront, lots of black and white pepper, a bit of flint, honey suckle, apple pith.

Stone fruit and leafy herbs. Purity of cool spring water. Loose textured. Savory backbone.

Golden straw color. Medium body with terrific acid. Paired one night with Thai, the next with broccoli ripassati
