Gavi DOCG 2020 - San Silvestro

A great white in a land of great reds, Gavi DOCG is made from pure Cortese grapes grown in the area of the same name on the hills in southern Piedmont. Here, not far from the sea, the soils are rich in marl and fossils. This magical mix of elements is able to give the wine strong mineral notes and pleasant citrus and floral scents. What most characterises this interesting white, however, is a very recognisable typical aroma of bitter almonds. The Gavi DOCG of Sansilvestro, vinified in steel with temperature control, is a fresh, immediate and savoury wine. An excellent white wine for fish, it is at its best with grilled fish, shellfish and oysters.

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.
