Barolo Ravera Bricco Pernice, named after a small hill on which courting partridges build their nests, is the very latest wine from Cogno. The fruit of years and years of hard work, a desire that has come true. A project — a wine from a beautiful vineyard in Novello, in the most historic part of the Ravera cru, where the exceptional microclimate gives superb Barolo. An expression of all the technical and stylistic precepts of the maestro himself, it fully deserves its place in the ‘Riserva di Elvio’. A peculiar characteristic of Barolo Ravera Bricco Pernice is its enveloping softness, capable at once of revealing all the allure and potency of Ravera cru.
Made from the Lampia sub variety of Nebbiolo this wine is ruby to garnet red in colour. Intense notes of violet accompanied by a hint of damp soil, ripe red fruit and subtle spiciness. Harmonious and well-structured on the palate with incisive yet fine, soft tannins. Already elegant and alluring when young, its silkiness and, above all, its complexity allow it to age as only great wines know how.
“The 2013 Barolo Ravera Bricco Pernice is a true protagonist of this gorgeous vineyard site. A bright green canopy extends right up to the Elvio Cogno farmhouse on a gentle slope that rises upward all the way to the Novello ridge. Ravera sits in a beautiful amphitheater of vines. From a classic vintage, this wine is solid and firm in texture. The bouquet is already expressive, immediate and direct. It is bursting with dark fruit, smoke, spice and licorice. This Barolo shows all the qualities that will guarantee a long and successful cellar evolution. Only 4,000 bottles were made. The wine sees a 40-day fermentation and maceration time with submerged caps. It is aged in large Slavonian oak casks for 30 months.” Drink 2020-2045
