Description

Damiano Ciolli Silene Cesanese DOC 2019

Damiano Ciolli Silene Cesanese is the winery's entry wine and is very approachable. Ruby red colour with garnet hues. Pleasantly fruity nose of small red berries with delicate hints of iron and herbs. Crisp and lean on the palate, nicely balanced with a measured tannin that blends perfectly with a mineral hint.

100% Cesanese di Affile. The fruit comes from four vineyards planted in different periods, trained with the spurred cordon and 'fan' system. The vineyards have deep red volcanic soils and a south are situated just outside the ancient city of Rome, in the small medieval town Olevano Romano.

Manual harvesting of the grapes when they reach optimal ripeness. The grapes from the various vineyards go through fermentation separately in concrete tanks. Spontaneous fermentation that lasts about 10 days. After racking, the Silene ages in cement tanks on its fine deposits for about a year. Before bottling, the different masses are assembled. After bottling, the Silene rests in the winery cellars for a further 3 months.
