2017 Barbera d'Alba Pre-Phylloxera, Elvio Cogno
Perhaps the ultimate expression of Barbera, this is a remarkable wine. It comes from a quarter of a hectare of 120 year-old vines, still on their own rootstocks. Cumin, tamarind, blueberry, fresh plums, and smoke all pour from the glass. The palate is so juicy and fine, and so much texture and length. This is special and long, leaves you speechless. Such a remarkable balance here.
