Coenobium Vino de Tavola 2007

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Earthy and lightly spicy on the nose with hints of brown sugar, bay leaf, eucalyptus, cotton bandage and a big chicken base note that builds in the glass. Sweet peach and pear fruits on the palate with light spice tones and a top note of herbs linger on the long finish. 89pts

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.

Enjoying this wine for a second time... Great provenance, good acid balance, a touch of tannin from the hand pressed stems and earthy notes lent itself well to our dish of Italian pasta, olive oil, spinach, mushrooms, pine nuts and Parmesan!

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