San Silvestro Roero Arneis DOCG "Parvo" 2011

External Review by Great Wines Direct:

First founded in 1871, the Sartirano family's wine business only started to develop the domestic market outside Piemonte in Italy in the 1950's, selling their wines in 54L barrels. In 1970 the family decided to bottle its wines and installed its first bottling line. San Silvestro produce great quality wines, typical of the region and competitively priced from their own grapes. Grapes : 100% Arneis Region : Italy / Piedmont / Roero Arneis DOCG Maker : Paolo Sartirano Notes : A very well structured white wine with a subtle hint of apricots and wild flowers in the background with a delightfully fresh minerality and a hint of bitterness on the finish. Serve : Chilled as an aperitif or with baked fish dishes, sushi, freshwater fish, rabbit, duck, risotto and shellfish. ABV : 13% Suitable for Vegetarians

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. Since 1988, the Tenuta Arnulfo Costa di Bussia estate in the area of Monforte d’Alba has also belonged to the Sartirano family, and in 2002 they also took over the Tenuta Ghercina estate, which includes vineyards in the villages of Barolo and Novello, where the headquarters of the company are now located.
