    Barbaresco DOCG Gaia Principe 2020
  • This wine represents one of the most interesting expressions of the Nebbiolo grape variety, according to San Silvestro. Barbaresco DOCG, Gaia Principe enjoys great elegance. The 'Gaia Principe' sub-zone, in the municipality of Neive, is in fact a particularly vocated area for the production of Nebbiolo. Historically known for the high quality of its grapes, capable of producing important wines that are deeply linked to their terroir of origin. 100% Nebbiolo, this fine red matures first in large Slavonian oak barrels and is then refined in the bottle. Ruby red with evident garnet hues, this Barbaresco stands out for its elegance, thanks to its spicy hints of cinnamon and pepper. In the mouth, the tannin is particularly soft and silky. The finish is long, prolonging the pleasure of each sip for several minutes. This is not a wine to be uncorked on any occasion Better to wait for the right occasion, when there is a menu of feathered game, mature cheeses or first courses with very tasty meat sauces on the table. But there is no need to worry. This red is in no hurry to be uncorked. Good today, it can serenely wait in the cellar even for 10 years for the right occasion.

    Cantina San Silvestro is located in Novello, in the heart of the Barolo Langa. Here, Paolo and Guido Sartirano carry on - with wisdom and respect for tradition - the fine family business. For four generations, it has been a history of investing in the future. Today, thanks to the close collaboration with the vine growers, San Silvestro is able to offer a range of wines that touches all areas of Piedmontese viticultural excellence, from Gavi to Barbaresco via Asti and Barolo. The company can count on around 7 hectares of vineyards, some of which are dedicated to native vines such as Nas-cëtta, typical of the municipality of Novello. The range is completed with two Metodo Classico sparkling wines. The cellar, on the other hand, covers an area of about 5 thousand square metres, of which about 4 thousand are underground, minimising the impact on the surrounding environment.
