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. And daughter Elena? Today, he is responsible for the sleek and stylish house style of the domain. Learned young, shall we say. They only grow native grape varieties: Nebbiolo, Barbera, Dolcetto and Nascetta.

Elvio Cogno's flagships are the Ravera and Bricco Pernice from the historic vineyards of Ravera and each one of the best in the region. Ravera sits in a beautiful amphitheater of vines. This is a thoroughly classic vintage, solid and sturdy in texture. The bouquet is already expression. It is bursting with dark fruit, smoke, spice and licorice. This Barolo shows all the qualities that guarantee a long and successful cellar evolution. Only 4,000 bottles were made. The wine has had a fermentation and maceration time of 40 days!! and matures in peace in large Slavonian oak barrels for 30 months.
