Cherries and raspberries on the nose. Soft but with structure and finesse. A very approachable style of Barbera with excellent ripe fruit.
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 mostly grown in the Langhe, and from vineyards to be found in the Roero and the Monferrato regions. Today, San Silvestro represents the continuation of a project begun by Giovanni Sartirano, and carried forward through four generations. Over the years, the firm - run today by cousins Paolo and Guido Sartirano - has gradually expanded beyond the local market, and now the production of "Cantine San Silvestro" is sold throughout Italy and abroad.
Crushing and de-stemming: fermentation in stainless steel at a controlled temperature of 28-30C; maceration on the skins for 8 days with daily pumping over the cap. Natural malolactic fermentation takes place in the spring following the vintage. The wine is left to rest in temperature controlled tanks for 6 months prior to bottling.
