Elio Sandri Barolo


The Wines from Elio Sandri are world class and just under the radar which is perfect! The vineyards are farmed lovingly, in a truly minimally interventionist style, planted roughly between 300 and 350 meters above sea level, only account for part of the brilliance of these wines. There is of course the winemaking as well. Adhering to a similar non-interventionist tact in the cellar, Elio has quietly been producing wines that should be recognized as among the region’s best. Elio’s been the guiding hand at Cascina Disa since the 2000 vintage, though the property was purchased by his father in 1965, coincidentally the year of his birth. He has a gift and has quietly been producing wines that will be recognized as deserving the same acclaim as the top Barolo houses. The biggest impediment to that fame is the limited production of about 300 cases a year of Barolo.

The Elio Sandri Perno Barolo was produced from hand harvested organically grown grapes. Ageing occurred in old Slavonian oak barrels for 2 years, and 4 years in bottle.

“The 2016 Barolo Perno is a dark, brooding beauty. Deeply spiced, mentholated notes wrap around a core of red cherry/plum fruit. Wild herbs, game, tobacco, cedar und leather open with a bit of coaxing. Mystery, seduction and unreal complexity start to emerge with a bit of air. Readers will find a potent, strapping Barolo with plenty of tannin and acid. Tasting Elio Sandri’s 2016 Barolo Perno is like stepping into the past. As I have written before, this is a very distinct style of Barolo that is just not made any more.” Antonio Galloni
