Langhe DOC Nas-Cëtta 2020 - San Silvestro

A little Piedmontese wine gem. Nascetta, or 'nas-cëtta', is an indigenous grape variety from the Novello area, the very commune where the Sansilvestro winery is based. A long-forgotten vine, due to difficulties in the countryside and low production, it was rediscovered in the 1990s, thanks to the efforts of a group of Novello winegrowers who had the opportunity to taste old bottles. Then, in 2010, the new designation "Langhe DOC Nas-cëtta del Comune di Novello" was recognised. This white wine is made from grapes grown on the company's own plots of land on the banks of Lake Ghercina, and is aged for over 5 months on its lees, acquiring body and structure. In the glass it is an intense yellow colour. The nose is an explosion of vegetable and floral scents. Acacia flowers and even the freshness of citrus fruits stand out. In the mouth, then, the exotic aromas of fruit are combined with a good minerality that accentuates the freshness. Excellent as an aperitif, it lends itself well to accompanying fresh vegetable-based hors d'oeuvres. But also knife-edged raw meat, raw fish and shellfish. Excellent with sushi.

The Sansilvestro winery is located in Novello, in the heart of the Langa del Barolo. A beautiful story, that of Giovanni Sartirano, who in 1871 began his activity in the world of wine. More than a century later, Paolo and Guido carry on the family traditions with wisdom and respect. They are now the fourth generation at the helm. The story of Sansilvestro is one of investment in the future, with a careful eye to not losing sight of the teachings of the ancestors. After all, the company is deeply identified with the Piedmontese territory. It works with traditional vines, such as Barbera, Nebbiolo, Dolcetto, Grignolino, Arneis, Cortese and Moscato. But we have also chosen to invest in the promotion of recently rediscovered native grape varieties, such as Favorita and Nascetta di Novello. Today, thanks to close collaboration with vine growers, Sansilvestro is able to offer a range of wines that touches on all areas of Piedmont's viticultural excellence, from Gavi to Barbaresco, passing through the Asti area and Barolo.
