Elio Sandri Perno Riserva Barolo

This 100% Nebbiolo Barolo Riserva is planted mid-slope (like Burgundy’s Grand Cru vineyards) in the Barolo Zone on a southwest- facing parcel of the Perno Hill, but is otherwise farmed the same as the Barolo but with older vines and lower yields. Fermented whole- cluster in ancient Botte wood casks, and then aged 4 years in smaller Botte, the Riserva always shows more length, especially obvious in the peacock-tail of an expansive, colorful finish. It also carries greater aging potential with a deeper structure.
