Terre Silvate is the wine that more than any other represents La Distesa. It is a wine that remains popular without being really a base wine.
It is born from an assemblage of the grapes Verdicchio and Trebbiano coming from three different vineyards, with diverse soils and expositions, harvested between the end of August and the end of September. It is vinified in large cement tanks and rests on the fine lees until Easter. It is generally the first wine to be bottled, so it can be enjoyed during the first summer after the harvest.

In a time when concepts of purity, belonging and identity are being evoked, we wanted to gather, mix and unite all of our grape skins together.
It is a rosé not from the soft pressing of red grapes, nor from the salasso (saigneé or bleeding) method. Meticcio is a wine that comes from the simultaneous harvest of our white and red grapes that are pressed together and then naturally fermented in a mixture of peels, skins and colors, to make a wine that tells our story, how we view the world and how we would like our children to be.

The tradition of red wines in Cupramontana included the blending of different grapes and short maceration times.
It is a blend of Sangiovese and Montepulciano from different parcels, all in Cupramontana. The most important of these is a small plot planted in 1973 at the end of Contrada Valle, suspended in wilderness. Here emerge white, calcareous and chalky marl (Schlier Formation – Miocene Epoch).
It is vinified without sulfur in wood casks with a good amount of whole grape clusters. The fermentation finishes in steel tanks. It is an agile red wine but not at all banal, to be consumed fresh and in large gulps.
