Elio Sandri owns 8 hectares of vineyards in Piedmont at Monforte d'Alba on the famous Disa hill on blue marl soils. A magical terroir planted with Nebbiolo, Barbera and Dolcetto. The production of the estate is unfortunately limited, around 3500 bottles depending on the vintage and distribution in France is very rare... The vinification is very traditional, with the minimum of interventions, with macerations in concrete vats to bring out the fruit as much as possible. Fermentations are carried out with indigenous yeasts and the wine is aged for a very long time, at least 60 months for the Riserva vintage! Elio Sandri's Barolo wines are fascinating to taste, lovers of elegant and refined wines will be won over, black fruits, dried flowers and spices harmonise, great wines of terroir and emotion with an immense capacity for ageing, and at prices that are still very reasonable..
