Tasting Notes: Cherry, Strawberry, Licorice, Spice
The Cogno family has been making wine for four generations in Piedmont. Elvio Cogno, in turn, has now passed the torch to his daughter, Nadia, and her husband, Valter Fissore, who has worked beside Elvio for 25 years. Following in the footsteps of Elvio the maestro, Elvio Cogno winery continues to produce elegant wines without altering the traditions, styles and flavors of the Langhe,
A Barbaresco of striking vitality. The 2013 is elegant, medium bodied, balanced and expressive with high acidity and firm, silky tannins. Licorice, graphite, orange zest, dried black cherry, red cherries, roasted herbs, strawberries, spice tones, leather, and fresh picked red berries dance across the palate. It ends with a long and classically structured finish. Decant now or cellar for a few years. Pair with game or barbeques ribs.
