Elvio Cogno Barolo 1978

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Sour on the nose with a touch of a yogurt edge, a touch of VA, leathery notes of dried beef, sweet tea and dried fruits with a top note of espresso foam and seaweed. This is quite resolved and lean in the mouth yet retains good balance with light rose petal, rosehip and wild cherry flavors that are supported by the bright acidity, and open with a burst before fading on the seaweed and licorice toned finish. This bottle is past peak and fading 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.
