Grapes: Sangiovese/Ciliegiolo

Wine made by the sisters of Monastero Suore Cistercensi led by Sister Adriana and Sister Fabiola.  They produce a scant amount of red wine: a charming blend of equal parts Sangiovese and Ciliegiolo called “Benedic.” Despite a two-week maceration, “Benedic” is typically a beautifully pale, translucent wine.

A soft wine with red fruit, dried leaves, white flowers, and fresh tobacco
