TASTING NOTES

The 2012 Barolo Ravera is another gorgeous wine from Cogno. An exotic melange of orange peel, cinnamon, spices, licorice and dried rose petal lifts from the glass as this sublime, nuanced Barolo gradually opens up.

Elvio Cogno

The man who gave this sought-after estate its name sadly passed away in 2016, but Elvio Cogno’s daughter Nadia and son-in-law Valter Fissore are continuing his work. Valter focusses on the vineyard, with the belief that great wine can only be made with perfect grapes. It’s not just Nebbiolo that soars with such care in the vineyards: Valter’s Barberas rival all those in the land. His pre-Phylloxera example, from vines over 100 years old, elevates the Barbera grape to a whole new level.
