Elio Sandri TNs.

  • 2010 Elio Sandri Barolo Riserva - Italy, Piedmont, Langhe, Barolo (9/13/2017)
    Clear light red. Very concentrated earthy nose that is already beginning to show tar, violets and red cherry fruit. Delicious dry red fruit and earth flavours and a very long tannic finish.

This is a beautiful traditional Barolo. Everything is here but in a very powerful but traditional way. Not over extracted or oaked. A very serious wine. (93 pts.)

  • 2010 Elio Sandri Barolo Perno - Italy, Piedmont, Langhe, Barolo (9/13/2017)
    This wine is designated Perno. It is the same wine as the regular Barolo. I think this designation is new for the 2010 bottling.

Bright light red. Spicy cherry and violets in a medium intense nose. Very elegant and floral. Dry concentrated cherry and earth flavours and a medium length tannic finish.

Not as concentrated or earthy as the Riserva. (92 pts.)

  • 2015 Elio Sandri Langhe Nebbiolo - Italy, Piedmont, Langhe, Langhe DOC (9/13/2017)
    Light red. Spicy cherry nose, medium minus intensity, very floral. Dry spicy cherry flavours and a dry tannic finish.

Needs up to 5 years in the cellar. Pretty serious for a Langhe. (90 pts.)

  • 2015 Elio Sandri Barbera d’Alba - Italy, Piedmont, Alba, Barbera d’Alba (9/13/2017)
    Medium red. Very tight nose, spicy black cherry, very hard to pull out at this point. Black cherry and sea salt flavours. There is a fair bit of structure and of course acidity.

This needs a 5 year or so nap. However, I see my note differs from the ones below. It was pored from a half full Corovin bottle so it may have been more tired then tight. (88 pts.)

Looks like we’ll be able to keep this a secret for awhile longer.

Is there a connection to Aldo Sandri?

Greg. Yes it appears few are interested in these sort of wines here.

Robert. I know Elio is fairly young and his father ran the property before him. Not sure though.

Elio Sandri Barolo Perno Riserva 2010 : 18/20 – November, 12 2017
Produit sur Monforte. Voici encore un grand Barolo, racé, sur la réserve mais déjà fort complexe : fumée, zeste d’orange, fleurs, quinquina, réglisse, … le tout renforcé par une volatile « normale ».
Très long, coriace (acidité, tannins et alcool comme il se doit) mais distingué et son grain poudreux me fera proposer nebbiolo plutôt que sangiovese sur Brunello. Il me rappelle la cuvée Parafada de Massolino.

Merci pour votre note Laurent. Je suis d’accord c’est un vin sérieux. Avez-vous eu la Normale?


Thank you for your french.
This was my first encounter with a wine of this domain …
This is surely not the last one :slight_smile:

Pardon mon francais.
