Monastero Suore Cistercensi Coenobium 2017

Under the guidance of Umbria's legendary Paolo Bea, the Sisters of the Cistercian order at the Vitorchiano monastery 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. A blend of Trebbiano, Verdicchio, and Malvasia grapes might leave you praising the Almighty. This wine is a "pet-nat" meaning a semi-sparking natural wine.
