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.
