2016 Elvio Cogno Barolo Ravera

94 Points Antonio Galloni's Vinous
In stock
A compelling Barolo with focused dark fruit and savoury character. We love this for the density of flavour and expressive charisma, balancing out the florals and firm acid-tannin structure. It could be approached with some caution soon, but it would be more ideal to put some of these beauties into the cellar before they're gone.
$145.00 in mixed 6+ or $165.00 per bottle



Its Origins

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

94/100 Vinous, Antonio Galloni

"The 2016 Barolo Ravera shows all of the energy and tension this site is so well-known for. Penetrating acids and veins of tannin give the Ravera its drive and overall feel. Naturally, the 2016 is going to need at least a few years to be at its best, but it has tremendous breeding and character to burn. White pepper, mint, sweet red cherry and citrus add to the wine's high-toned profile. This is another stellar wine from Cogno." Drink 2024 - 2041

18+/20 JancisRobinson.com, Walter Speller

"Novello. Beautifully lifted, perfumed and concentrated. Almost an explosion of fresh, crushed, sweet, red fruit. Great purity of fruit with firm tannins that never dominate. Vibrant acidity and succulence on a full, tannic, yet endlessly fine palate. (WS). Drink 2022 - 2036
