The description

This wine is dedicated to Fileno Rainone, an ancestor who lived in the 1700’s who is recognized as one of Campania’s earliest archaeologists.

Grapes for Phileno are dried for 40 days in a structure called a fruttaio. The intense, elegant aroma develops elaborate fruity notes of dried figs, apricot jam, acacia honey, biscuit, caramel and nutmeg.

The grape is cultivated in the company vineyards in the municipal district of Dugenta, registered as DOC Sannio. It is selected and manually harvested. Afterwards, it is placed to dry in a “fruttaio” (fruit warehouse) for about 40 days. After a short cold maceration, the fermentation is made in steel at controlled temperature and lasts 2 weeks. The ageing is made in French oak barriques for about 9 months.

Deep golden colour with good clearness. Bouquet is intense and persistent, with elegant fruity notes, dried figs, apricot jam,acacia honey, biscuit, caramel, nutmeg, delicate herbal tones, musky and smoked towards the end.

Taste gives a full-bodied, sweet, delicate, pleasant acid note and average mineral sensation. It has a good balance between sweetness/softness and freshness. Long and clean ending, thanks to a long taste/scent persistence, harmonious.
