Perched atop some of the highest hills in the region in a community east of Barolo, in the hamlet of Monforte d’Alba, resides Cascina Disa Elio Sandri. Every part of Sandri’s winemaking is slow and gentle, allowing for very low levels of sulphur and no other additions. The results are exquisite, ultra-traditional terroir-driven wines of unbridled elegance and poise with a seemingly endless lifespan. Very long maceration, deep ethereal aromas and intensity on the palate.

Coming from vines planted in 1937, these old vines are in tune with their wonderful mostly south facing position and yield fruit that is balanced, rich and deep with flavor and harmony. Fermented for 21-28 days, with natural yeasts and submerged caps, these wines are then aged for up to 7 years in Slavonian oak, and even though the minimum is some 60 months the average is most likely quite close to the full 7 years.
