"Silene was named after a wildflower, very common in our vineyards, Silene vulgaris. Silene is obtained from 100% Cesanese d’Affile grapes blended from different vineyard blocks, which are on average 30 years old. The vines yield about 1.5-2.0 kg (from 6 to 10 clusters per vine).

 

The vines are trained at ‘ventaglio’ and spurred cordon. Our grapes are handpicked, only when the maturation has reached the optimal level.

 

Each block is fermented separately in concrete vats by natural fermentation and the maceration length is about 10 days. Silene is aged in concrete vats for no less than 1 year, after which is blended and ready to be bottled. Once in bottle Silene rests in our cellar for further 3 months.
