Barolo Bricco Pernice, named after a rock on which courting partridges
build their nests, is the very latest wine from Cogno. The fruit of years
and years of hard work, it is a desire that has come true. A project —
a wine from the finest vineyard in Novello, in the most historic part of
the Ravera cru, where the exceptional microclimate makes for superb
Barolo — dreamt of by Elvio and achieved by Valter.
Barolo Bricco Pernice is the latest chapter in a story — Elvio Cogno's — that began in La Morra. 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 Bricco Pernice is its enveloping softness, capable at once of revealing all the allure and potency of Bricco Ravera.
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.
