2019 Sara Vezza Nebbiolo d'Alba DOC
Smells of dark-red roses and wild cherries, and it smells of that moment when you lift up a log of wood in a forest and the underneath earth and mushrooms and decaying leaves and the scent of mycorrhizal life comes rushing up and fills your nostrils with something so deep that you can feel its primeval resonance in your veins. Racy elegance and purity. So much purity! This made my spine tingle. A 'simple' Nebbiolo d'Alba and yet a wine imbued with miyabi beauty. This wine has a calm, gentle but purposeful soul. Brava Sara! Drink 2022 – 2027.
Full bottle 1,315 g. Sara Vezza comes from a long line of Piemonte winemakers, running the family winery Josetta Saffirio. This is her first foray into making wine in her own name.
