Azienda Agricola Josetta Saffirio

Row

Only ten minutes away from Barolo, on the top of a hill, there is a street that brings you a straight to the winery, to a tasting, to a cellar in the middle of the vineyards

We are in Castelletto, a subzone of Monforte d’Alba, one of the eleven towns where it is possibile to produce Barolo. It is among these vineyard-covered hills that the Josetta Saffirio Winery finds its home.

Vine-growing is an art, capable of unifying an entire territory through love and dedication, a rare synergy between man’s passion and a generous land.

The story of Josetta Saffirio is deeply rooted in the Langhe

The Langhe, the land were some of the most precious Italian wines are made: Barbera, Nebbiolo, and the king of wines, Barolo. On the hill of Castelletto, extending over a total of five hectares of vineyards, mainly cultivated with Nebbiolo, the Josetta Saffirio winery grows its vines and, harvest after harvest, tells a story of excellence.
The winery is perfectly integrated with the landscape; it is isolated with natural cork and is certified organic and sustainable, working for over than ten years now with great care and love for the environment throughout the entire production process.

The gnome, emblem of the winery since the times of Ernesto, father of Josetta and grandfather to Josetta’s daughter Sara, the last exponent of the Saffirio family, is depicted on the labels of the winery’s production and continues to fascinate the newer generations.

And the wine? Wine is one of life’s greatest pleasures

And the Langhe is one of the greatest places for wine: the grape bunches fill the rows beautifully as the harvest approaches.

Josetta’s wines

Barolo DOCG

Josetta Saffirio produces one of the best nectars of this world: Barolo. Ruby red in color, with full and intense aromas: these are the inalienable characteristics of a real Barolo DOCG.

An honorable mention must be made for Barolo Riserva Millenovecento48, which comes from a vine planted right after the war, which draws its potential from the old age of the vines, whose roots run deep and whose yields are low. Thanks to these plants, a wine of superb structure is born, an ideal pairing for meats and cheeses.

Barolo Persiera

Even the Barolo Persiera has its own personality: the delicate hints of roses and wild strawberries are intertwined those of spices, which so often are characteristic of Barolo.

The Barbera d’Alba is an excellent red, whose vinification begins with a soft crushing of handpicked grapes, only to become the ideal pairing for the best dishes of Piedmontese cuisine.

Langhe Nebbiolo

Even the Langhe Nebbiolo goes well with the more aged cheeses of the Langhe and is a wine with great and distinctive aromas, a wine that blesses the palate with velvety and pleasant sensations.

The white wines are no less important though. The Langhe Rossese Bianco, a wine with clear personality, gives of a citrus-rich bouquet and is indigenous to Cinque Terre.

Langhe Rosato

Also originating for the Nebbiolo varietal is the Langhe Rosato, with its fresh scents that inebriate the senses thanks to its exotic notes and nuances of citrus.

The Nebbiolo d’Alba Spumante Rosè Metodo Classico is the ideal pairing for aperitivi and its bubbles make it perfect for toasts. The city of Alba, capital of the Langhe, has dedicated the event Nebbiolo Noblesse to all sparkling wines made with Nebbiolo grapes: a bubbles-only tasting.

Moscato d’Asti

Finally, as a perfect pairing with a “bunet” or with a traditional Langhe hazelnut cake, we have the Moscato d’Asti, elegant and fresh, an ideal after-dinner wine.

Grappa di Barolo, in fact, is distilled with steam in small copper stills and is obtained from the marcs that originated in the production zone of Barolo.
