Josetta Saffirio Barolo Persiera 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This opens with a deep herbal streak on the nose full of ivy and cactus, followed by an assertive floral note and fine raspberry fruit over sandy soil tones with a hint of wood spice. Showing a little roundness early on the palate, this has slightly more aggressive tannins than the 2009 Barolo Classico from Saffirio, with more savory complexity but less obviously sweet fruit. The finish is long and taut with a deep mineral streak and wild bitter cherry fruit. Another wine that shows abundant ripe tannins supporting savory complexity. 91pts

2000 bottles produced Spicy on the nose and tight with a dusty overtone to the rosepetal and slightly minty wild cherry fruit framed with rose hips and camphor. Soft on entry, then this shows fine acid and lovely, slightly aggressive crisp tannins. The fruit has a bit of black raspberry to it and is very fresh and clear on the palate with just a hint of wood sweetness and oak flavors contributing complexity. Rather classically structured with lovely herb tinged wild cherry fruit on the moderately long finish. Has a nice, expressive core of fruit. 91pts

Nebbiolo Prima - 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

AWE blind tasting - jammy with some cooked fruit character, some smoldering wood, very fluid, very drinkable, fresh cherry fruit, spiced lightly, nice fruity style wine, good acids, easy drinking, not complicated but enjoyable for its well captured ripe, succulent fruit, very clean finish, this is very drinkable and very friendly 87-88
