TNR- San Silvestro Barolo Riserva Brunate 2007

I can’t seem to find much info about this. I just got an offer at what may be a good price.

Anybody know this?


Don’t know much about them, but my impression is not very positive. I did not know they made a Brunate. There is no record of one in CT. If the price is really good, maybe try one bottle?

Hi Ken,

Do you have a negative impression based upon other bottlings from them? Bad producer?

You suggestion is fine, except the offer is for a six-pack.



Sorry, nothing specific that I can recall. I may have tried their wines at a tasting somewhere. And that could be quite out of date.

I’ve tried a number of San Silvestro wines over the years, and have always found them vapid; kind of the factory-farmed, anti-biotic laden cheap supermarket chicken of Piemonte, if you will. Yuck.

I really hate to knock producers, but these wines have always made me regret trying them.

That being said, I can’t recall tasting that specific Brunate Riserva

A wine becomes expensive the second it tastes cheap.

Thanks gents!

Tasted the wines a couple of years ago. If I was being kind I would say they were OK. Best of the group for me was the Barbera “Puella”.
