  • Josetta Saffirio Barolo Persiera 2009

    Snoothrank:

    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... Read More

  • Josetta Saffirio Barolo 2009

    Snoothrank:

    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 fruitine... Read More

  • Josetta Saffirio Barolo Riserva Millenovecento48 2007

    Snoothrank:

    2000 bottles producedA little tight, just a touch fudgy with black fruit and some attractive spice notes all wrapped up with sweet rose petals and a touch of chocolate covered orange peel. Silky on entry with soft burnished black cherry fruit that is supported by finely integrated acidity. This peaks early in the mouth and shows a hint of drynes... Read More

  • Josetta Saffirio Barolo 2008

    Snoothrank:

    10,000 bottles producedChalky on the nose with an herbal extract note with leathery and slight campfire like accents. A little compact but with excellent depth and a lovely roundness that doesn't obscure the detail here. There's fine acidity and plenty of ripe tannins supporting the slightly medicinal core of wild blackberry and slightly grapy f... Read More

  • Josetta Saffirio Barolo Persiera 2008

    Snoothrank:

    2000 bottles producedSpicy 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 ...

  • Josetta Saffirio Langhe Nebbiolo 2011

    Snoothrank:

    From young vineyards in Novello, with 10% Merlot to add color and softnessSoftly herbal on the nose with an underlying sweetness to the watermelon rind, rose and herb aromas. Open and supple on entry with nice tannins that ping in your mouth like an old school pinball machine. There's some lovely fruit here, gentle woodsy red berries with underb... Read More

  • Josetta Saffirio Barbera d'Alba 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Aged 1 year in 30 HL BotteIvy and violets greet the nose followed by big yet fresh black fruit, this turns immensely floral and really focused with a light oaken overlay. A slightly softer style of Barbera that's filled with rich red berry and black cherry fruit yet this remains very Barbera weight with no excess weight and only modest soft tann... Read More
