Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
Bright orchard fruits, creamy caramel, toasted nuts, a dash of spices, and a sprinkling of crushed wildflowers comprise the nose of this ’13 Coenobium. As seductive as this wine’s nose may be, its creamy, hefty mouth-feel will make you fall in love, and its streak of acidity will draw you back to the glass. A wine crafted by nuns in Lazio, Monastero Suore’s Cistercensi Coenobium shows the hand of master winemaker Giampiero Bea, the guiding force behind this estate, as well as the estate’s unusual volcanic soils. 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.
