There’s a wizard between Monforte and Perno, try his wines with our Instagram Flash Sale!
Elio Sandri is impossible to describe in a post, the best way to get to know him is visiting him or through his wines but here’s a few random info:
– he would not be making wine anywhere else, he thinks literally living on top of the winery has a key role
– his large casks are riddled with formulas and symbols that he draws with white chalk as part of his winemaking and explaining his philosophy to people
– his wines can stay open for months without getting spoiled (get that Coravin!). It’s not magic but winemaking.
His Langhe Nebbiolo is one of the best of its category in Langhe, the eastern exposure combined with a submerged cap maceration gives it great elegance and ageing potential. The Dolcetto vineyard is surrounded by a forest and it was planted in 1970: the wine is supple and extremely classic.
