Azienda Agricola Cogno Mandorlo Dolcetto d'Alba 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

Bright ruby red in colour with deep violet highlights. The perfume is immediate and intense, uncompromisingly vinous and persistent. It is redolent of grape must which, on ageing, develops sensations of red forest fruits. The bouquet is dry and full-bodied, elegant and round, with notes of fruit and a wonderfully almondy finish. Serve with starters, pasta, soups, salamis and cream cheeses.

Our History The Elvio Cogno winery sits on the top of Bricco Ravera, a hill near Novello in the Langhe area of Piedmont, one of the eleven communes in which Barolo is produced. The cellar is housed in an 18th-century manor farm surrounded by 11 hectares of land, all occupied by vineyards. After a long and fruitful partnership with Marcarini at La Morra, in 1990 Cogno bought a splendid historical farm in the family village and restored it to its former glory. Today the winery nestles in a breathtaking landscape between the hills and the sky. At sunset on clear days, a wonderful turquoise horizon frames the farm like a painting. Hence the name of this exceptional wine land: ‘Petorchino’, or blue feet. The Cogno family has been making wine in the Langhe area for four generations: the values of history and tradition handed down by father Elvio are enhanced by the freshness and innovation introduced by his daughter Nadia and her husband Valter Fissore.

Lightly floral violet aromas, clove and strawberry. Simple, chalky notes of red currant and strawberry on the nose with loamy earth and a tannic grip with tart cranberry notes on the finish.
