Barbera D Alba Bricco Dei Merli Elvio Cogno 2012

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Macerated plums, sandalwood, and jammy boysenberry fruit greet the nose in a rather fruit driven and pronounced way. Round on entry with nice fleshy plum fruit that shows little boysenberry flashes along with a little jammy black currant note and black cherry preserves. This is very well knit, though very fruity in style with soft tannins and a soft feel through the backend before the acid kicks in on the plummy finish. Huge and simple but if you’re looking for a fruity barbera this could be magic. 87pts

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.
