Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
A wine crafted by nuns in Lazio, Monastero Suore’s Cistercensi Coenobium shows the hand of master winemaker Paolo Bea, the guiding force behind this estate. More unusual than being made by nuns, this white is vinified like a red, so the Trebbiano, Malvasia, and Verdicchio grapes get extended contact with the skins. The resulting wine is unusual, complex, vaguely oxidized and, well, orange. Expect a dry palate flavored with a heady mélange of apple pie, toasted pecans, honey and citrus in a complex and very food-friendly medium-to-full body.
