Savoury with leather and earthy notes, traditionally
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 Nebbiolo vines are grown in the northern Italian region of Piedmont. The climate
here is continental which is tempered by the Tanaro Rver and its tributaries. Grown in
marl clay and sand soils, the late ripening variety is usually harvested in early
Following crushing and destemming, the grapes were fermented in stainless steel
tanks at a controlled temperatures of between 28 to 30°C. A maceration on the skins
lasted for 12 days, with daily pump overs. Natural malolactic fermentation took place
during the spring following the harvest. The wine was then aged for three years: two
of which were spent in large oak barrels and one year in tank, followed by six
months in bottle, prior to release.
