Barolo DOCG, Elio Sandri (2014) - Piemonte
Grape : Nebbiolo.
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.
Food Pairing : Truffle dishes like traditional tajarin pasta with rich mountain butter, fonduta of strong cheeses, even fried egg with a runny yolk – shaved liberally with decadent Alba White Truffle. Barolo cheese pairing ideas include strong cheeses like Castelmagno DOP or Gorgonzola.
