The Wine

The sisters produce a scant amount of red wine. ‘Benedic’ is a blend of equal parts Sangiovese and Ciliegiolo (lighter red grape). Despite a two-week maceration, Benedic is typically a beautifully pale, translucent wine. Its color is soft and almost coppery. Aromas of subtle red licorice, dried leaves, and fresh pipe tobacco introduces a palate with a floral edge and gentle tannins.

Additive and elegance personified - an absolute winner of a wine for those looking to be slowly and delicately caressed!

These are not your typical Italian wines - one must have an open mind. They take a little time to unfold and fully appreciate - and when they do ‘Allora’ hopefully… you’ll have your ‘light bulb moment’. It is then, you’ll see another side: uniquely captivating, seductive and truly celestial qualities!

About the Wine Maker

Under the guidance of Umbria's natural wine making legendary Paolo Bea, the Sisters of the Cistercian order at the Vitorchiano monastery in Latium/Lazio region, about 70 kilometres northwest of Rome produce soulful and cerebral vini. They practice organic farming and produce wine as honest, sympathetic and gracious as they are. Coenobium ( the 'monastery') comes from the volcanic soils that underlay the vineyards. The extended contact that the fermenting juice has with the skins is a special vinification technique encouraged by Bea.
