About the Wine
With Barolo fast becoming an expensive collectors’ wine, you’d think that there’s no longer high value treasures to be found.
Which is why Josetta Saffirio’s base model Barolo needs your attention. Energetic and expressive young winemaker, Sara Vezza, has captured this vintage beautifully.
Organically farmed, infused rather than extracted, she draws out the perfumed nature of Nebbiolo with great fragrance and finesse. Throw in the cute gnomes on the label painted by Sara’s mother Josetta, and you know you've hit some serious buried treasure!
About Josetta Saffirio
The tale of Josetta Saffirio, as with many Italian wineries, is one birthed from a rich family history.
In 1975, Josetta Saffirio's story begins - she starts taking care of the vineyards that her father purchased a few decades prior. She experiments crafting wines, eventually creating a unique Barolo that blows the socks off the wine industry - a real feat for her to have achieved at that time.
Now Josetta's daughter, Sara Vezza, has taken charge of the vineyard. She takes great pride in working in unison with the land, saying "wine is a life force, rich in micro-organisms that allow it to evolve."
