San Silvestro Barolo ‘Patres’

San Silvestro Barolo ‘Patres’

Wine: ‘Patres’ Barolo

Producer: San Silvestro

Country: Italy

Region: Piedmont / Barolo

Vintage: 2017

Style: Red

Blend: Nebbiolo 100%

ABV: 14.5%

Size: 75cl

Vegan

 

Notes: A stylish Barolo, with expressive aromas of dried fruit, roses & tar. The deep fruits are layered with minerality on the smooth & mouth-filling palate & sweet tannins weave through to a very long, elegant finish. A more immediately approachable style of Barolo than some.

The wine was aged for three years: two of which were spent in large Slavonian oak casks & one year in tank, followed by a further six months in bottle, prior to release.

 

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 & is tempered by the Tanaro River & its tributaries. Grown in marl clay & sand soils, the late ripening variety is usually harvested in early October.

 

Producer Info: San Silvestro is located in the territory of the Commune of Novello. The grapes are mostly grown in the Langhe & from vineyards found in the Roero & 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 & Guido Sartirano & San Silvestro has gradually expanded beyond the local market & their wines can be found around the world.
