Josetta Saffirio

Double Winner

2007 Josetta Saffirio Persiera Monforte d’Alba - deep concentrated nose, macerated flowers, wild berry fruit, oak yes but nice raw materials, big, rich wine, nice integrated acids, slight metallic mineral note, some wood sweetened edges, pretty well put together, nice finish, pretty well done 2007 in a rich, powerful style. 8

2007 Josetta Saffirio Francesco 1948 Monforte d’Alba - sweet, lots of ripe herbal/vegetal tones, somewhat baking spicy but well integrated, lots of fruit here, but with some freshness, a bit languid in the mouth but with some nice high-toned elements that lend a mineral edge, rich but not totally weight nor as flat as many, nice clear finish, nice tannins, bit of bitter chocolate on finish. 7 (I'm not sure whether this has ever been made available. It's a lot of old vines, planted in 1948.)
