      Notes of apricot jam, white pepper, grapefruit rind, and gunflint frame a concentrated, almost oily-textured palate, and a zesty acidity contributes to the wine’s overarching sense of friendliness.

      Product information

      ABOUT THIS WINE:

      Made from a blend of Trebbiano, Malvasia, and Verdicchio, Coenobium Ruscum is an “orange” wine, with the pressed juice given extended skin contact, in this case, 15 days or more. An alternate lens into the nuns’ terroir, Ruscum comes from the same vineyards and the same harvest as Coenobium, but its juice spends in excess of two weeks in contact with the skins. If Coenobium is a wine of autumn, then Ruscum is its winter sibling—always richer and more substantial.

      ABOUT THIS PRODUCER:

      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, largely due to their employment of the noted winemaking consultant, Giampiero Bea. Here at this quiet religious outpost eighty women of this religious order work vineyards and orchards and gardens organically. Under the guidance of Bea, they produce two wines as honest and sympathetic, and gracious as they are.
