Cistercensi Coenobium 2006

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This smelled very sweet and savory with starchy notes and the sweet melted collagen tone of boiled pigs feet with some spicy woodsy backing tones that reminded me a little of Lopex de Heredia's white wines. The acids were a little fizzy and the wine was a touch bitter but still maintained a lean focus core of white cherry toned fruit. 87pts

Thirty years ago, a successful industrialist decided to devote himself to his great passion: wine-growing. And so began a fascinating and complex story that culminated in the acquisition and valorization of three very important estates in Tuscany. The purchase and restoration of an historic monastery (dating from 1000) at Castelnuovo Berardenga, in the heart of the Siena Chianti Classico area, saw the creation of a prestigious agricultural and residential complex, the present-day Castello di Monastero. Montalcino, the homeland of one of the most famous wines in the world, saw the acquisition and renovation of the Coldisole estate joined. Lastly, the foundation of Poggio alle Sughere in the Tuscan Maremma area. Production philosophy. Attention focuses on territory and grapes: the wines must be an expression of these two components and highlight there best aspects through attentive management of the vineyards, harvest, vinification and ageing.

Nuns probably aren't the first people to come to mind when you think of winemaking, but this white wine was indeed made by a group of nuns in Italy's Lazio region. They did a phenomenal job, too: this dry wine is full of pears, quince, cinnamon, and mineral flavors. Put just a slight chill on it and enjoy.
