San Silvestro Ottone 1 Barbera del Piemonte 2020

Classic Barbera with soft red cherry and blackcurrant

spicy finish.
Producer Note
San Silvestro is located in the territory of the Commune of Novello. The grapes are
mostly grown in the Langhe and from vineyards found in the Roero and the Monferrato
regions. San Silvestro represents the continuation of a project begun by Giovanni
Sartirano which has been passed down through four generations. Today it is run by
cousins Paolo and Guido Sartirano and San Silvestro has gradually expanded beyond
the local market and their wines can be found around the world.
Vineyard
This wine is named after Otto I, Grand Emperor of Saxony, who was one of the
protagonists of the legend of Aleramo and the foundation of Monferrato region.
Barbera is the most popular vine variety in Piedmont, renowned for its strength and
productivity. The compact structure of its clusters makes it easily recognisable and
wines made from Barbera typically present lovely freshness, due to the high acidity
naturally occurring in this variety. The vines producing this wine are grown in marl clay
and sand soils. This vigorous vine is carefully managed in the vineyards, in order to
produce concentrated flavours.
Winemaking
The grapes were crushed and destemmed and then fermented with selected yeasts in
stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 28 to 30°C. Fermentation was
followed by maceration on the skins lasting eight days with daily pumping over of the
cap. Natural malolactic conversion took place in the spring following the vintage and
then the wine was left to rest in temperature controlled tanks for six months prior to
being bottled.
Tasting Note
Bright cherry tones combine with aromas of wild raspberries. Soft on the palate but still
with structure and finesse. A very approachable style of Barbera with excellent ripe fruit
and a fresh finish.
