Coenobium "Rusticum" 2007

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

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

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.

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.
