Elvio Cogno Barolo Cascina Nuova 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2009 Barolo Cascina Nuova is less exciting than it has been in the past. The bouquet lacks the disciplined focus that usually characterizes the wine. Raw cherries and ripe blackberries dominate the wine’s petite frame. Surely, that adolescent awkwardness will evolve into something more promising in a few more years. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2022...90" WA 6/13 "A visit to the cellars of Elvio Cogno is always a fascinating learning experience. I had my first taste of a beautifully fresh and fragrant white wine made with the Nascetta grape here a few years ago. The variety was new to many of us then, but thanks to vintner Valter Fissore and his wife Nadia Cogno it is strongly identified with the territory today. More recently, the couple started to produce limited cases of Barbera d’Alba made from pre-phylloxera vines (most more than a century old). That they were able to tap into that ancient genetic patrimony in this well-trodden part of Italy is something of a small miracle. They are also credited with putting the little-known Novello township on the Barolo map.

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 lit fleshy on the nose with hints of bologna and nuttiness under some dried peach notes, with smoky, tart red fruit. Soft and broad in the mouth with good acidity providing nice cut to the wild cherry fruit on the palate, which is just a little loose. This might be a little simple but with an attractive combination of power and transparency, with the fruit turning a little black cherried on the backend. The long finish shows nice length with fine slightly dry tannins, and hints of licorice and plum. 90pts
