Food Pairings for San Silvestro Nebbiolo Barolo
The “Cantine San Silvestro” is located in the territory of the Commune of Novello. It mainly produces the leading Piedmontese Doc and Docg red wines, with a storage capacity in a controlled microclimate of around 400,000 bottles within a total surface area of over 5,000 square metres. The grapes vinified by Cantine San Silvestro are mostly grown in the Langhe, and from vineyards to be found in the Roero and the Monferrato. Today, San Silvestro represents the continuation of a project begun by Giovanni Sartirano, and carried forward through four generations. Over the years the firm - run today by cousins Paolo and Guido Sartirano - has gradually expanded beyond the local market, and now the production of “Cantine San Silvestro” is sold throughout Italy and abroad. This lovely Barbaresco has a complex bouquet with hints of violets, dark chocolate, coffee, almonds and pepper in the background. It is a dry, full bodied red wine with balanced oak and firm tannins. This wonderful wine pairs with pheasant, pigeon, roast turkey, marrow-bone and mature cheeses.
