2 for £30 San Silvestro Nebbiolo d’Alba Brumo

Wine: Two bottles ‘Brumo’ Nebbiolo d’Alba

Producer: San Silvestro

Country: Italy

Region: Piedmont / Nebbiolo d’Alba

Vintage: 2019

Style: Red

Blend: Nebbiolo 100%

ABV: 14%

Size: 75cl

Vegan

 

Notes: A refined & stylish garnet coloured wine with a full flavoured palate of ripe red cherries & spicy notes typical of the Nebbiolo grape. The evident varietal fruit & vanilla overtones are supported by a full bodied structure through to an elegant, lingering finish. Aged for 12 months in large Slovenian oak casks, imparting complexity & rounding out the tannins.

Nebbiolo, the noble variety from Piedmont, gets the name from ‘pruina’, a substance found on the skins of the berries that makes them look as though they are covered by a film of fog. Fog translates as ‘nebbia’ or ‘bruma’ in Italian. Additionally, it is during the foggy season, between October & November that the Nebbiolo variety ripens, hence the name of this wine ‘Brumo’. The vines are planted in soils which are made up of marl clay & sand. The marl clay soils are typical of the Piedmont area & are known for imparting refreshing, natural acidity to the resulting wine. The sandy element of the soil is poor in nutrients so the vine develops deep roots which help to concentrate the flavours in the berries.

 

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.
