Damiano Ciolli Silene is a full-bodied and deep wine, dark ruby red with garnet highlights. The nose reveals a pleasant fruity bouquet that recalls the fragrance of small berries, combined with delicate notes of iron, china and aromatic herbs.
Damiano Ciolli is focused on the Cesanese grape, a rare regional specialty of the Lazio region.
The vine that gives life to this Cesanese "Silene" is a little gem: originally planted in the traditional "conocchia", was then carried out in a row on the wall to improve its management. The vineyards are exposed to the south, are situated at an altitude of 450 meters and placed on a red volcanic soil. Damian's idea to focus only on the production of pure Cesanese has repaid all the sacrifices made: this wine, in fact, has been shown to be a great character and great freshness, the nose showing notes of red fruits and an unmistakable mineral notes. Thanks to his work Damiano Ciolli has taken a leading role in that small and courageous group of producers who continue to renew the stylistic model of Cesanese di Olevano, taking it from year to year to incredible success.
