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
On the hills near Gavi, not far from the Ligurian Sea, the Cortese grapes are grown,
producing this Gavi D.O.C.G. Cortese is a white grape variety grown in the Alessandria
area, especially on the hillsides surrounding the town of Gavi. This variety is not very
robust and requires good climatic conditions in order to ripen properly. In the
Alessandria area, it has found the essential conditions to produce excellent results. The
soils are rich in marls and fossils, providing a unique terroir for this unique wine.
Winemaking
The grapes were gently pressed prior to the fermentation, which took place in stainless
steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 18 to 20°C and lasted 10 days. The wine was
left to rest in tank on its fine lees for six months, which added texture and complexity,
prior to being bottled.
Tasting Note
This crisp white wine shows incredible mineral, zesty citrus and floral notes, with a hint of
spice. Prominent mineral characters linger on the deliciously mouthwatering finish.
