TREBBIANO, MALVASIA + VERDICCHIO - 2016
LOW INTERVENTION | NATURAL
Baked apples with floral notes of chamomile, a slight sweet mint. Light bodied despite a long time on skins.
The cistercian order of nuns at Monastero Suore Cistercensi, near Vitorchiano in Lazio planted their vineyard in 1963, but it wasn’t until the early 2000s that their wines began to attract more attention. That was largely down to the employment of their winemaking consultant Giampiero Bea, who has made the wines ever since. Bea known for his work at the Paolo Bea estate in neighboburing Umbria, it's not a surprise to discover that he makes these wines in an ultra-traditional, hands off manner.
