Tasting Notes

You've got to take the time of day to appreciate this wine and the story (see below) that comes with it. An orange wine (skin contact white wine) made from Trebbiano, Verdicchio and Malvasia. Give it time to open for it to grow in complexity. As the Malvasia starts to rear it's head this moreish orange wine comes into it's own. Marmalade, pepper, honeyed almonds in a dense casing. Very drinkable in it's youth. - Chris L

About an hour drive North of Rome, the monastery was opened in 1957, when the community moved in, and today has around 80 sisters. The order is the 'Cistercense della Stretta Osservanza', also known as Trappist, who obeys the Benedictine principle of the 'ora et labora' (pray and work) and intends the work above all in the manual sense, therefore also agricultural. Here at this quiet religious outpost, this religious order works vineyards and orchards and gardens organically. Under the guidance of the Bea family, the sisters tend the vineyard without machinery and are invested in low-intervention practices. They ferment with only naturally occurring yeasts and follow organic wine-making practices. - Importer Note
