Josetta Saffirio Barolo 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A tight little nose with gamy rose hips, rose petals, and faint red curranty fruit. This is round and immediately red fruited on entry with red cherry and raspberry fruit that shows a soft sweetness and fine strawberry seed spice. Tannins are well managed, present but unobtrusive with juicy acidity and a nice watermelon undertone to the fruitiness. Really fine wild cherry fruit on the moderately long finish that shows a fine medicinal edge. Fruity yet classic style with super ripe tannins. 90pts
