The Nebbiolo grapes for the Josetta Saffirio Barolo DOCG del Comune di Monforte d'Alba 2017 come from three different vineyards that have been owned by the Saffirio winery for decades. The Nebbiolo vines are of considerable age and promise berries of the highest quality.

The hand picking of the grapes usually takes place in October and the carefully selected berries are lightly pressed and destemmed. Fermentation then takes place in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks at 30°/ 32°. Then the aging begins, which takes place in barriques for the wine and lasts 24 months. Finally, the wine is then stored in the bottle during the final phase of aging.

This Barolo impresses with its intense, sweet cherry fruit, a hint of rose petals, but also earthy notes. On the palate, the wine is fruity, mineral with fine tannins and good structure. The aftertaste is balanced and persistent. A balanced and elegant Barolo.

The Barolo goes very well with game, red meat and mature cheeses. It is ready to drink immediately and for the next eight years.

The producer: Josetta Saffirio / Sara Vezza

The drive to the Josetta Saffirio / Sara Vezza winery from Monforte is a serpentine road that makes you wonder if you're even on the right road. But when you arrive, you see that the winery extends in one of the most precious places of the Barolo wine region. To the east, the winery faces Serralunga d'Alba, known for its clayey soils that produce deep, austere Baroli of incredible longevity. To the west lies Castiglione Falletto with its chalky, sandy soil and elegant Barolo wines. The winery itself is located on the edge of the Monforte d'Alba wine-growing area.

The Josetta Saffirio / Sara Vezza winery is located on a steep, serpentine road that leads from Monforte to the access road to Serralunga d'Alba. This location has several advantages: it lies between clayey and calcareous-sandy soils that give the Barolo wines the excellent characteristics of longevity, depth and elegance. The winery is part of Monforte d'Alba.

The winery was founded by Josetta Saffirio in the 1970s and is now run by her daughter Sara Vezza, who also owns her own Sara Vezza brand.

Sara is passionate about the area where she grew up. For them, the soil and heritage are the motivation to create sustainable wines that are true to the region.

She is the fifth generation of a farming family and mother of four children. Under her management, organic viticulture is practiced on the winery.
