Fattoria del Cerro Description

We are pleased to present the 2017 vintage of the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano DOCG produced by Fattoria del Cerro. The satisfaction of announcing its arrival on the market is combined with the pleasure of unveiling to the public the new name chosen for this label. Silìneo is a neologism born from the fusion and alteration of the word “sinuous” and the Italian suffix “lineo (like linear)”, which gives rise to the adjectives “long-limbed” and “curvilinear”.

Elegance, sinuosity, balance and harmony are fundamental elements of the product and we want that our customers would be able to appreciate the characteristics of the wine just reading the label. This is why we have chosen a name that is inspired by the sensations that the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano DOCG gives to the palate. The name Silìneo visually expresses elegant and harmonious shapes. The initial “S” also has the power to evocate the image of a wave, thus suggesting the succession of flavors and aromas that surprise the palate.

The most important value aspects that led to the creation of the name undoubtedly include the link to the land of origin: Montepulciano, where historical documents attesting to its production of this wine date back to the Middle Ages. The first two letters of the name “Si” make up the word “yes”: an affirmative particle of the Italian language known and used all over the world. Silìneo becomes an ambassador of a strong sense of openness and invites his admirers around the world to discover the beauty of the geographical area that gave him origin.

But that’s not all, for the fourth consecutive year Fattoria del Cerro’s Nobile di Montepulciano won the Gambero Rosso’s Three Glasses award, the well known Italian Wines Guide.

Vivid ruby red color and good concentration. Intense fragrant aroma with evident fruity notes among which are wild black cherry, violet and vanilla. Full bodied and well balanced sip with silky tannins and a long tasty finish. Pair with grilled meats, roasted white meats and medium aged cheeses.
