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 deep purple color. The nose is brooding and layered, with red tones, raspberry, redcurrant, a hint of blackcurrant and ramassin plum as well. In the mouth, this is a brooding and noble Barbera with plenty of density and layers on display. Redcurrant compote, stone fruits, prune, with supple tannins. This is such a layered yet vibrant wine, with so much to be discovered and a long, long finish. .
