Monastero Suore Cistercensi Olive Oil
It is through the Bea family that we had the good fortune of meeting the Sisters of the Cistercian order. From their monastery in Vitorchiano, Monastero Suore Cistercensi (a sisterhood of about 80 nuns) work their vineyards to produce their iconic Coenobium wine that has earned a cult following. Their “Superiore” olive oil, sourced from five varieties of olive – local Canino, Frantoio, Leccino, Pendolino, and Maurino – is also harvested organically. The resulting oil is fragrant, revealing a deep green color and rich polyphenol content.
