We're glad to present our first vinification of Nosiola, our native white vine .
Raetica is indicated by Plinio il Vecchio, and other Greek-Roman authors, as one of the most widespread white grape vines in the "Raetia", an ancient province of the Roman empire that ranged from Switzerland, Austria and Northern Italy .
Already mentioned by Catone (234-149 BC), it is not easy to define today which modern vine is descending, less documented, but present in the local culture, it is the conviction of a direct descent of Nosiola and Groppello di Revò dall'Uva Raetica.
"Raetica Nosiola" is born on the hills of Pressano from abandoned vineyards restored and planted in Nosiola, selected by plants of 120 years free foot.

The other point of view
"The other point of view" is the contraposition of the use of chemistry in agriculture, an environmental paradox: the secondary sector can't support the primary sector as the chemical practices can't support the fertility of the earth. This paradox for Silvano wants to be the mission that offer to the consumer the opportunity to “instruct” their palate to a new, but ancient, feeling of naturalness.
