Josetta Saffirio Langhe Nebbiolo 2015
Lively garnet red, with a very decisive appearance at the nose of dried fruit and raspberries. Exceptional balance on the palate, of velvety tannins and similar sensations as already announced at the nose.
In 1977 Ernesto Saffirio asked his daughter Josetta, Professor of Viticulture and Enology at the School of Enology in Alba, and Roberto Vezza, enologist, to take care of the vines belonged to her great-grandfather in Castelletto, part of Monforte dAlba. After several years of work the ambitious aim of producing a great Barolo came into closer reach in 1985 under their own label ”Azienda Agricola Josetta Saffirio”. Soon thereafter important recognition rewarded their hard work, such as the ”Tre Bicchieri” award by Gambero Rosso (’88 and ’89 vintages) and other numerous prizes, including international ones.
