This unique collaboration between Giampero Bea and the Cistercian Nuns who tend the vines from which this wine issues is both unprecedented and historic in many ways: this is one of the wines that launched the "orange wine" category. Although there's obvious skin contact involved with this mélange of Trebbiano, Malvasia and Verdicchio, the wine is not dead orange in color, but rather a deep gold...making it a perfect starting point for novices interested in this category. It's also not tannic, the way many orange wines can be. There's loads of barely-ripe plum and nectarine notes, as well as a savory, saline undercurrent.
