Our story started in the 70s in our Family garage and since then it's been brought forward with heart, commitment and much presence of mind. From the simple things, Sandrone's philosophy was born. Today as much as yesterday, but with stronger and solid roots, we keep on doing our work well.
We have chosen to work with only 3 autochthonous varietals and with patience and time we have selected plots of land where altitude, exposure and
composition of the ground best suit each grape variety.
Our company is located in Barolo, in the heart of the Langa area. We deeply love the hills and their compact soil. We know the expectations of a vine well that prefers sunny grounds, far from strange winds and from stagnant humidity. With patient research, we have found, here and there, the fittest grounds for Nebbiolo. Cannubi Boschis and Vignane in Barolo, Merli in Novello, Villero in Castiglione Falletto and Baudana in Serralunga d'Alba. The slopes are hostile, the soil is rich in structure but poor in substance and the sun is slower to set. On these hills our great Barolo are born, absolute wines, dedicated to the whole world.
To the right of the Tanaro, the Langa has shaped the hills with a solid structure, a profound terrain compact in its marly trestle, grey in certain places, bluish elsewhere. At the left of the river the marly components let the layers of sand prevail which often englobe fossil shells making the soil softer and welcoming. The differences of the soil orient and guide the characters of the wines; those born on the right of the river are full, savory and long-lived; harmonic, delicate and fragrant are the ones born to the left of the river. Thus, under the same sky, both territories benefit of a cold and mild climate...today with the sun, tomorrow between the clouds, this is what helps the wines to resist time.
At the beginning of the 90s, we discovered a beautiful steep terrain in Roero, with a softer structure; a cradle for the vine, a natural amphitheater so steep that the sun is able to warm it up also in winter, when it rotates lower on the horizon. This is Valmaggiore, where we have planted our Nebbiolo vines following the lineaments of the soil, respecting the orientation of the hill, looking for the perfect harmony with the territory. Here our Valmaggiore is born, a 100% Nebbiolo, elegant and aristocratic, as a real country gentleman.
