Josetta Saffirio, Castelletto Persiera 2018 Barolo

17

Full bottle 1,299 g. Still under the Josetta Saffirio name on the front label, but Azienda Agricola Sara Vezza on the back label.
Gravelly and without the rumpled damask sheen and purity of her Sara Vezza Ravera Barolo tasted alongside. But still impeccably refined. Wild cherry and hedgerow, sweet-liquorice leafiness. A shot of amaro, a lick of cacao beans, red plum skins and sloe berries. Minted freshness breathing through the mouth of the wine. A light-restraint corset of tannins, embracing shape rather than forcing into shape. (TC)
