We've often said, finding value in Barolo is hard to do. That's why we are so excited about the San Silvestro Barolo 2018. Reminiscent of Burgundy, the Italian wine region of Piedmont is comprised of many small family owned vineyards with an obsession to produce some of the world's finest wine. The 2018 San Silvestro Barolo lives up to that reputation, and cousins Paolo and Guido Sartirano are now the fourth generation of the family to craft these amazing wines. Crafted from 40+ year old vineyards in the prime Barolo zones of Novello, Roero, and Monferrato, the 2018 vintage is classic Barolo with bright acidity and early appeal. Aromas of red cherries, flowers and spices give this Italian red much of its widespread appeal, in a juicy style that has become a signature of San Silvestro.
"Aromas of raspberries, mushrooms and flowers. Medium-bodied, bright and spicy with a racy feel. Slight tannin build towards the end. Fresh finish. Best from 2023." James Suckling, 91 Points
"Reticent red fruits, cherry, raspberry, violet, leather, allspice and crushed tobacco. Well integrated tannins follow through on a lovely finish." Decanter Magazine, 91 Points
