Editorial Reviews for Coenobium "Rusticum"
Very big VA right off the bat tbut that is followed by herbs, chalk, leather, roasted chestnut, salty prosciutto tones all over a lovely balsamic base. Bright and crisp in the mouth with nice sprightly tannins up front that are quickly subsumed by the candied, burnt orange rind fruit and biting mineral tones that linger on the exceptionally long finish. Great balance and finesse here with everything in place. 94pts
External Reviews for Coenobium "Rusticum"
Advising oenologist Paolo Bea suggested that these Cistercian sisters try aging longer on the lees and this is the result. The wine is golden in the glass with notes of roasted fennel, mint, and pear skins on the nose. The palate is dense with sweet fruit and prominent preserved lemon acidity. The finish shows hints of skin tannin. A unique and beautiful wine.
