Harvest after harvest
We sink our roots deeper into the magnificent Langa earth
At the beginning of the twentieth century, Josetta’s father Ernesto began to cultivate the vineyards inherited from his father. In 1975, a very young Josetta decided to take up work in her father’s vineyards. With a degree in agriculture and the help of her oenologist husband Robert, she began to cultivate the vines planted by her grandparents at the end of WWII. Several years later, Josetta and Roberto reaped the fruit of their labours, producing a Nebbiolo of excellent quality. In 1985, they presented their first Barolo with the current label—the fruit of passion and commitment in equal parts.
Gnomes are the consciences of good men
Josetta, creator of the original label drawings, dedicated her wines to these small creatures, who help farmers in the fields and look after the animals and the cellar in return for a little wine.
The beauty and originality of these drawings made Josetta Saffirio’s illustrations famous throughout the world.
The gnome perfectly represents our way of making wine in a sustainable way.
Our roots have been here in Monforte d’Alba, in Piedmont, for five generations and two hundred years.

I know how lucky I am to have been born here, to have grown up with the light and colours of this fragrant land. One day I realised that it was not the land that belonged to me, but that I belonged to the land.
