Region: Vitorchiano / Lazio

Grapes: Sangiovese / Ciliegiolo

The grapes are co-fermented for 15 days in fibreglass containers. Only a handful of this wine made every year.

A wonderfully pale and elegant wine, Jura Ploussard in colour. Red berries, anise and dried herbs. Gentle and elegant on the palate.

Wonderful light wine and very rare.


About an hour drive North of Rome, the monastery was opened in 1957, when the community moved in, and today has around 80 sisters. The order is the ‘Cistercense della Stretta Osservanza’, also known as Trappist, who obeys the Benedictine principle of the 'ora et labora’ (pray and work) and intends the work above all in the manual sense, therefore also agricultural. Here at this quiet religious outpost, this order works vineyards, orchards and gardens organically. Under the guidance of the Bea family, the sisters tend the vineyard without machinery and are invested in low-intervention practices. They ferment with only naturally occurring yeasts and follow organic wine-making practices.
