Elvio Cogno Barolo Bricco Pernice 2012

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Cough lozenge, brownie, baked fruit, smith brothers black cherry fruit fruit and even a little blackberry shows up on the nose. This is very fresh in the mouth, a little round up front then the tannins kicks in, a bit hard and angular but entirely appropriate. This is very fresh for a 2009 with very pretty, chiseled red currant and cranberry fruit supported by mineral laden, dusty tannins. Today this is a bit tough but it promises to reveal gorgeous perfumes with air and the limestone cut of the tannins keeps this nervous and finely balanced in the mouth. There is great length and purity of fruit on the finish. This reminds be of Rocche or Cannubi, chiseled like a marble statue. 94pts

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.

A fairly big confiture nose of red and dark fruit with a hint of plumminess that turns a bit smoky, deep,  and soil driven with air showing lots of tobacco and cherry in alcohol, and a little mint. On entry this is  a little chewy and powerful, with an elegance to the tannins, but lots of power, packed  tight with fine grained tannins that supports black licorice and black cherry fruit on the mid palate and through the nice powerful finish. 92pts

Sweetly fruited and bursting with aromas of rose hips, rose petals, just a fine edge of attractive jamminess, nice gentle spice, and hints of tar and licorice. Finely balanced on the palate with well managed tannins that are present, if not prominent, this shows a really lovely core of red fruit, that is rich, ripe and transparent, with lovely tannins and perfectly balanced supporting acidity. The finish is just a touch short but I expect it will lengthen with time. A great showing. 93pts
