Elvio Cogno Barbera d'Alba Pre-Phylloxera 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

A bright, rich ruby colour with intense purplish highlights. The aroma is enveloping, aromatic and deep with noticeable spices on first impact and raspberry, strawberry and ripe cherry notes. Finishing with pleasant harmonies of wild flowers. On the palate it is well structured, fresh and the acidity is excellently balanced, the tannin robe is embracing and the flavours remind you of sour cherries, blackberries and prunes.

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.

Floral syrupy aromas with ripe black cherry on the nose and a hint of licorice. Focussed and tart on the palate, this shows a lot of cranberry and cherry flavors with a fair bit of oak on the finish. 87 pts
