Josetta Saffirio
Gnomes are the conscience of good men
Ernesto kept Saffirio child un'animo, despite evidence which had undergone life. In the evening he told the small Josetta that as a child he saw in the yard of Castelletto farm get a gnome with a cart pulled by mice. So it was that Josetta bequeathed these tales to his children Sara and Alessio, devoting wines to these characters of the forest that help farmers taking care of the animals and checking the basement, in exchange for a bit 'of wine. The wholesomeness and sweetness that are linked to these illustrations have made this label famous throughout the world.
Ruby red color with garnet reflections.
The nose reveals intense aromas with notes of wild berries, vanilla, toasted hazelnuts, licorice, tobacco and cinnamon.
On the palate it is full and elegant, good-bodied and austere with perfect correspondence with the olfactory sensations. The tannins are well integrated, balanced and pleasant freshness.
