Made a mere 90 minutes north of Rome, the Sisters of the Cisterian order have quietly been making some of the region’s most remarkable wines out of a monastery in Vitorchiano since the early 90s. Working primarily with local Italian grapes, some 80 nuns tend to a combination of vineyards, orchards and gardens planted on volcanic soils, producing characterful wines almost entirely without technology. Made nearly identically to their lighter cuvée, Coenobium, Ruscum spends an extended two weeks on the skins for added texture and taste.

Pair with salty finger foods and a warm summer’s breeze.
