Tasting Note: Pure Vermentino, intense yet approachable, full of apple, peach, citrus and sunshine.
Food Matching: A pleasingly palatable combination can be made with the following dishes: pasta with chicken, sun-dried tomatoes, gorgonzola and pine nuts, citrus tarragon chicken or pork medallions with Dijon mustard cream sauce.
Vineyard: The grapes making Cala Silente come from vermentino vineyards having the best exposure, cultivation density and yield per plant.
The soil composition is a medium mixture, tending to sandy and clayey.
The climate is Mediterranean, with hot and dry summers and mild winters.
Vinification: The hand-picked grapes are again selected at the Winery before being approved for separate vinification in stainless steel tanks under controlled temperature (16-18 °C). After completing alcoholic fermentation, the wine develops further in cement vats in contact with its lees, acquiring greater roundness and taste.
