Suore Cistercensi - Benedic Rosso 2021
The fruit is grown organically and naturally in volcanic soils and manually-harvested. The sisters produce a scant amount of red wine and “Benedic” is a blend of equal parts Sangiovese and Ciliegiolo. Despite a two-week maceration, “Benedic” is typically a beautifully pale, translucent wine. Registering just 11% alcohol, its color is soft and almost coppery. Aromas of red licorice, dried leaves, and fresh pipe tobacco introduces a palate with a floral edge and gentle tannins.
