The Langhe Nebbiolo as it should be. A fresh alternative to heavier Barolo cousins. Smiley wine, filled with fresh cherries and florals. Drink now, or in ten years. Piemonte is a region full of rich family history and the Saffirio estate is no different. In 1975, Josetta Saffirio started taking care of the vineyards that her father purchased a few decades prior. She experimented with winemaking, and was a huge part of the Barolo’s return to old winemaking techniques despite the commercial pressure in the region during the 1980s. 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." Magnificent expressions of Nebbiolo across the board.
