£68.00

75cl

The Josetta Saffirio Millenovecento48 Barolo Riserva comes from a vineyard planted in 1948, just after the war. Since 2007, they have chosen a separate wine-making of this vineyard, because they realised the great potential related to the old age of the plants: roots that draw in depth and very low yields. From this vineyard they obtain about 1000 bottles, making this wine a rare find.

Garnet red colour with ruby reflections. Intense aroma with scents of vanilla, toasted hazelnuts, liquorice, tobacco and cinnamon. Lots of generous fruit, with aromas of wild strawberries and blackberries, a lovely texture and a long intensity.

Pairings

A wine of great structure, well suited to red meats, braised dishes and game in general. And ‘ideal accompaniment for cheeses.

THE MAKER: Josetta Saffirio

Josetta Saffirio was a pioneer. Back in 1973, at the young age of 23, she transformed the family business, that was selling grapes to other winemakers at the time, to a fully functional winery with her name and the famous gnomes as a brand.

Today the Josetta Saffirio cellar is a family business led by Josetta’s daughter Sara. The vineyards of the estate stretch over 5 hectares in the area of Castelletto (Monforte d’Alba). The family mixes traditional methods with modern techniques and practices sustainable and organic viticulture.
