Barolo "Patres" DOCG 2017 - San Silvestro

The Father of all wines, our most representative wine. These are the words used on the Cantina Sansilvestro website to present the Barolo DOCG Patres. It is normal, therefore, that in this case the expectations are particularly high. A symbol and spokesman for the Langhe, Barolo needs time to open up and express itself fully. And the Patres is a perfect example. Already good today, after a long period of maturation in the cellar, it is a red wine with character capable of evolving for a long time yet. All you have to do is store it well and not be in a hurry to uncork it at the first opportunity. 100% Nebbiolo, as is normal, the grapes used for its production come from the 11 communes of the denomination. After vinification, for the delicate phase of refinement, Patres remains for a minimum of 38 months in the cellar, of which at least 18 months in large Slavonian oak casks. Garnet red and elegant, the nose has hints of spices and dried flowers. In the mouth, however, it is velvety, full and enveloping, characterised by the presence of sweet tannins. A super intense wine, it requires a weighty combination. Excellent, for example, with game or a tasty braised veal. It goes well with stewed meats in general but also with mature cheeses.

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.

    A rather savory Barolo with a tight bead of red berries, together with oyster-shell and light bitter-herb notes. Medium-to full-bodied with firm tannins and some bitter citrus and spice at the end. A little rough at the edges right now, but should settle in nicely. Try after 223.
