2016 Elvio Cogno Barolo Riserva Ravera Vigna Elena
Elvio Cogno is located on top of Bricco Ravera, a hill near Novello in the Langhe area of Piedmont. This is one of the eleven municipalities where Barolo is produced. The cellar is located in an 18th century manor house, the farm is surrounded by 11 hectares of vineyards. The Cogno family has been making wine in the Langhe area for 4 generations. The history and tradition were passed down by father Elvio and the innovation was introduced by his daughter Nadia and her husband Valter Fissore. They only grow native grape varieties: Nebbiolo, Barbera, Dolcetto and Nascetta.
The 2016 Barolo Riserva Ravera Vigna Elena is a dark and savory wine and is the top wine of this famous winery from Piedmont. The bouquet is extremely fine and equally complex with dried berries, roasted herbs, tar, forest floor and freshly shaved truffle. That truffle note gives the wine a lot of territorial identity and immense charm. The tannins are integrated and show a very fine and polished nature. Only 4,000 bottles of this top barolo have been produced and is expected to be ready to drink from 2020 and has a drinking window until 2050 + 97/100 Parker
