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
The name ‘Nebbiolo’ comes from one of two schools of thought: some believe as the
harvest of Nebbiolo usually occurs in October, when foggy weather is common, it takes
the name from ‘nebbia’ meaning ‘fog’; however others believe the name is derived
from the presence of ‘pruina’, a substance which gives the appearance of a foggy
haze on the berry’s skin. The Nebbiolo vines are grown in the northern Italian region of
Piedmont, where the climate is continental and is tempered by the Tanaro River and its
tributaries. Grown in marl clay and sand soils, the late ripening variety is usually
harvested in early October.
Winemaking
Following crushing and destemming, the grapes were fermented in stainless steel tanks
at controlled temperatures of between 28 to 30°C. Maceration on the skins lasted for 12
days, with daily pump overs. Natural malolactic conversion took place during the
spring following the harvest. The wine was then aged for three years: two of which were
spent in large Slavonian oak casks and one year in tank, followed by six months in
bottle, prior to release.
