"Neboise" Nebbiolo d'Alba Brut - sparkling rose wine, which is produced from Nebbiolla grapes grown in the vicinity of the city of Alba, on the Langhe and Roero hills. The DOC classification was assigned to the Nebbiolo d'Alba zone, located in the northeast of the province of Cuneo, in 1970. Its center is the city of Alba, and vineyards occupy a vast territory in 25 communes. The soil, which has an ancient marine origin, is a different combination of clay, limestone, sand, silt and silica. The climate is temperate, slightly dry, with continental features. It is believed that the name of the variety Nebbiolo comes from the fogs ("nebbia" - fog), which descend on the vineyards. It was emphasized that the variety ripens late in the fall, when foggy weather is in Piedmont. However, local winemakers claim that the name of the variety means "noble" ("nebbieu" in Piedmont - noble). Harvested by hand. Sparkling wine is produced by the classical method with an extract on the noble sediment in bottles for 24 months. Storage capacity "Nebuaz" is 2-3 years.
Since 2006, San Silvestro has been headquartered in Novello, in the heart of the Barolo district. Here Paolo and Guido Sartirano run the business with wisdom and respect for the traditions and history of the family, of which they are the fourth generation. The brothers cherish the work done by their family to achieve today's success, which is based on investing in innovation, attention to tradition, technology and quality. These are just some of the key factors that characterize San Silvestro. The history of the winery began in 1871, when Giovanni Sartirano began to produce and sell their wines in the region of Lange. The name of the company comes from a place in the village of Narzole.
San Silvestro works with traditional Piedmont grape varieties such as Barbera, Nebbiolo, Dolcetto, Grignolino, Arneis, Cortese and Moscato. Every glass of wine from San Silvestro embodies the uniqueness of the great region of Piedmont. The company owns 7 hectares of its own vineyards, but the company also buys grapes, working in close cooperation with the growers from different areas. This is a common situation for many wineries of Piedmont, which was already used in the XIX century. At that time, many winegrowers who owned small plots could not afford the cost of vinification and preferred to focus their work on growing grapes and selling the crop to large wineries. These partnerships were created on the basis of long-term contracts that could last for several generations. Thus, trust and cooperation became fundamental for both parties.
Professional and rigorous selection of winegrowers is a strong point of San Silvestro. Today, under the control of the agronomist, Professor Carlo Arnulfo, the growers of San Silvestro are working hard to achieve a high standard of quality. Most of the production, about 88%, is exported abroad.
