Planted on poor soils, downslope from the vines destined for the Riserva in a southwest-facing parcel of the Perno hill. More forward than the Riserva, the Elio Sandri Barolo is intense, structured and age-worthy but extraordinarily balanced, thanks to careful aging in neutral Slovenian oak. It is native-yeast fermented with partial stem inclusion in barrels, racked back to same casks, then bottle aged four years before release. Unfined and unfiltered.
