Elvio Cogno, Barolo Ravera (2019) 750 ml

About the product
Barolo Ravera is produced with the grapes of the most important cru in Novello, a guarantee of fine aromas, sapid
flavour and great complexity. The mainly calcareous soil of this historical vineyard adds elegance and structure to the
wine, making it ideal for ageing. Only a few great wines possess its capacity to develop successfully in the course of
time. Austere and severe in its early years, Barolo Ravera loses none of its typicality with the passing of the years; on
the contrary, it improves all the time. Careful selection in the vineyard and relatively long fermentation help to
heighten the characteristics of the grapes, which express themselves to the full after ageing in the bottle. A unique
testimonial for a prestigious terroir, a wine takes the typicality of the Langa hills to the top in terms of quality.

About the producer
The Cogno family has been making wine for four generations in Piedmont. In 1990, Elvio Cogno left a long and
fruitful partnership with the venerable Barolo producer Marcarini at La Morra and bought a splendid, historic 18thcentury
farmhouse on the top of Bricco Ravera, a hill near Novello in the Langhe area. (Novello is one of the 11
communes in which Barolo is produced.) The farm was surrounded by 11 hectares (27.18 acres) of steeply sloped
vineyards. Elvio restored the manor, converted the old granaries to wine cellars and founded his eponymous winery.
For the next 20 years he devoted himself to the winemaking traditions handed down to him by his father and
Elvio, 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, with its breathtaking quilted
landscape and unique grape varieties.
The Elvio Cogno winery sits at the top of Bricco Ravera, a hill near Novello in the Langhe area of Piedmont, one of
the 11 communes in which Barolo is produced. Ravera is the finest cru of Novello, encircling the top of the hill and
the winery, reaching a 380-meter (1,246-foot) elevation, with breathtaking views in all directions.
