After working with Marcarini in La Morra, Elvio Cogno returned to his family village in 1990 to rebuild an historical farm into the home of one of Piedmont's more important Barolo producers. Now daughter Nadia and her husband Valter Fissore are the force behind the rising fortunes of the house, producing strictly classic wines with modern cleanliness and technique, low yields and sustainable, closely managed vineyards.
What The Critics Say
95+/100 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
"Cogno's 2012 Barolo Riserva Vigna Elena is one of the finer wines of this generally uneven vintage. Ethereal and gracious, the Vigna Elena is deceptive in its structure and overall feel, and yet it has so much to say. The spice, rose petal, orange zest and bright red cherry fruit are all finely etched. A few years in bottle will help the tannins soften." Drink 2022 - 2032
95/100 James Suckling
"Extremely perfumed and fresh with roses, lilac, cherries and hist of strawberries. Medium bodied, bright acidity and tangy lively finish. Drink now or hold. But its so good to drink now."
17.5++/20 JancisRobinson.com, Walter Speller
"Lustrous mid ruby with a narrow, orange rim. Pretty much similar to Bricco Pernice, but more brooding and with enormous concentration of ripe, sweet-sour cherry. With aeration, it increases noticeably in depth. A wine to wallow in. Compact and backward with succulent red fruit underneath. Very tight finish with bags of polished tannins. Not nearly ready. Taut, yet powerful. 100% Rosè. Released two years after the other Elvio Cogno Barolos. (WS) " Drink 2020 - 2030
