Grape variety: Dolcetto
Leathery and earthy on the nose, with hints of violets, cherries and plums on the palate. Light bodied, but very intense and with a long finish. A wine that simply delivers drinking pleasure.
Elio Sandri’s vineyard area has been planted with vines as early as the 1400s, with his family growing grapes there since the late 1800s on the steep slopes of the Disa hill in Monforte d’Alba. Elio has a profound understanding of the terroir, and his winemaking style is adjusted accordingly. The long history of the vineyards allows for fermentation carried out by a healthy population of native yeasts. Elio prefers these natural processes and produces wines with minimal extraction and without any new oak. His production volume is very small and driven by quality.
