The producer

Since 1965, the Sandri family have had their base and winery “Cascina Disa” in the heart of Monforte d’Alba. Vineyards are planted between 300-500 metres above sea level, with prime eastern and southern exposures, and are farmed with as little intervention as possible. Around 3,500 bottles are produced per year, and the winemaking at Sandri is as low in intervention as the vineyard work. Ripe, exuberant and modern in style, these wines are thought by many to be some of the best in the region.

The wine

Sandri’s Barolo Riserva “Perno” is made from vines that are minimum 35 years old and which are growing with south-east exposure in iron-rich sandstone and limestone clay. “Perno” is fermented in concrete and then aged for minimum three years in 225L barrels. Exuberant and powerful, “Perno” is a wine of dark cherry, savoury, herbaceous, and liquorice complexity and with persistent tannins and a long finish.

We choose our wines based on a range of criteria (see how we choose our wines) of which critic scores is just one. Rather than simply highlight the best score to promote a wine, our average critic score is calculated from the scores provided by several respected wine critics, who we follow for specific regions. They do not represent all critic scores and, wherever possible, we try and give more weight to more recent reviews. Where appropriate we consider market-based scores like Global Wine Score or Wine Searcher Average scores.

As a rule, we look to offer wines that achieve a 92/100 average critic score or better and frankly a lot of very good wines simply don’t make the cut. As a high-end provider we want to reflect that positioning in the quality of wines we offer. Such wines are only a tiny fraction of those generally on offer in the market. We believe that an average score is a more conservative and representative approach, but it is still subjective and only offered as a guide to our customers, who will (and should) do their own research. We will add individual critic scores to our website in the future.
