Monastero Trappiste di Vitorchiano Coenobium 2017
NATURAL WINE FROM NUNS! Just to the North of Rome are 80 Trappist nuns who make extraordinary & unusual wines! 45% Trebbiano, 35% Malvasia, 20% Verdicchio vinified on the skins like a red wine, & kept in contact w/ the lees for a year, this gorgeously golden juice hits your nose w/ yellow flowers underneath a bale of hay. The fruit (pear & ripe citrus) comes out only on the palate, & even then it's wrapped in baking spice, a faint nuttiness, & lovely acidity in a full, bold mouthfeel. Amen!
