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
