Cantine San Silvestro is located in the territory of the Commune of Novello. It mainly
produces the leading Piemontese DOC and DOCG red wines, with a storage
capacity in a controlled microclimate of around 400,000 bottles with a total surface
area of over 5,000 square metres. The grapes vinified by Cantine San Silvestro are
mostly grown in the Langhe, and from vineyards to be found in the Roero and the
Monferrato regions. Today, San Silvestro represents the continuation of a project
begun by Giovanni Sartirano, and carried forward through four generations. Over
the years, the firm - run today by cousins Paolo and Guido Sartirano - has gradually
expanded beyond the local market, and now the production of "Cantine San
Silvestro" is sold throughout Italy and abroad.
The vineyard soils are made up of marl clay and sand. The marl clay soils are typical
of the Piedmont area and are known for imparting acidity to the final wine. The
sandy element of the soil is poor in nutrients so the vine develops deep roots which
helps to concentrating the flavours in the berries.
Crushing and destemming took place prior to fermentation in stainless steel tanks at
a controlled temperature of 28 to 30°C. A ten day maceration on the skins followed,
with daily pump-overs of the cap, ensuring a good extraction of colour and flavours.
The wine was aged for 12 months in large Slavonian oak casks.
Full flavoured with dry and spicy notes typical of the Nebbiolo grape. The evident
varietal fruit and vanilla overtones are backed up by a full bodied structure with an
elegant, lingering finish.
Ideal with meat based pasta dishes with fresh tomatoes, game, grilled and roasted
red meats and fine mature cheeses.
