Elvio Cogno on Snooth

  • I'd stay away from the Marcarini Barolos.  GdP has them mostly on the ... on the downslope.  When Elvio Cogno left Marcarini, it was over differences in philosophy, mostly over focusing on quality vs. profitability.  The Cognos are probably a bit harder to find, but GdP has them on the upswing, and my notes on the '10s were very laudatory as w...

  • Azienda Agricola Cogno Montegrilli Nebbiolo Langhe 2014

    Snoothrank:

    This shows some astringency in the glass with tart notes of cranberry and cherry with floral notes of violet and rose petal wrapped in dusty earth. This opens up nicely in the mouth, showing a tart approach with cranberry fruit and puckering acidity, balanced well by the gripping tannins and black pepper and cinnamon spice. This is still quite y... Read More

  • Azienda Agricola Cogno Anas-Cetta Langhe 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Nice minerality up front with lemon zest aromas and light toast. There's a bit of duality here, with puckering acidity hiding behind a full bodied mouthfeel. Some caramel on the finish and more minerality with yeasty notes. Read More

  • Azienda Agricola Cogno Bricco Pernice Barolo 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Tart, dusty notes of raspberry and violet open for this cherry noted wine with a full palate of drying tannins and tart notes of cranberry and hints of chocolate. It's worth noting the tannins a second time because of how pronounced they are amid the light fruit, intense acidity and floral notes. Read More

  • Azienda Agricola Cogno Mandorlo Dolcetto d'Alba 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Lightly floral violet aromas, clove and strawberry. Simple, chalky notes of red currant and strawberry on the nose with loamy earth and a tannic grip with tart cranberry notes on the finish. Read More

  • Azienda Agricola Cogno Barbaresco Bordini 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Cherry and raspberry aromas are fairly pronounced. Tart and focussed on the palate, with very strong tannins gripping the palate and not letting go. The flavor profile carries cherry flavors with touches of tar, but there's a good dose of heat that washes away some of the more delicate notes. Read More

  • Azienda Agricola Cogno Vigna Elena Barolo Riserva 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Delicate and elegant floral aromas of crushed violet with light soft cherry. Full and round in the mouth, with ripe cherry and raspberry flavors, a bit of licorice and a slightly medicinal finish, this is very well in balance and finding an excellent point in its maturity where it's drinking very well.89 pts Read More

  • Azienda Agricola Cogno Barolo Ravera 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Quite smooth, blackcurrant and blueberry notes, with plenty of spice and some cinnamon. A full bowl of rich fruit flavors on the palate, with ripe red cherries, raspberries, black cherries, cranberry, and plum. Bursting with acidity, this has plenty of capacity to age, with floral crushed violet notes, strong tannins and a tart finish.90 pts Read More

  • Azienda Agricola Cogno Pre-Phylloxera Barbera d'Alba 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Floral syrupy aromas with ripe black cherry on the nose and a hint of licorice. Focussed and tart on the palate, this shows a lot of cranberry and cherry flavors with a fair bit of oak on the finish.87 pts Read More
