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 and characteristics hints of bitter almond. Prominent mineral characters
linger on the long and precise finish.
