Coenobium - Lazio Bianco 2018
As always, “Coenobium” is a blend of Trebbiano, Verdicchio, and Malvasia, harvested together and co-fermented without added yeasts or temperature stabilization. It is aged on the fine lees in steel and fiberglass tanks, and bottled before the next harvest without fining or filtering. Aromas of fennel fronds, chamomile tea, fresh almonds, and tangerine lead into a full but delicately rendered palate. Glowing acidity lets the slightly savory flavors ring out and really coat the mouth, yet the overall impression is one of freshness and drinkability.
