Winemaker's Notes

Brilliant garnet-red in colour with orange highlights. Firm, elegant and potent on the nose, it has scents of dog rose, mint and tobacco, scents which meld in the course of time into spice, coffee, liquorice, truffle, leather and minerals. A full-bodied, rounded bouquet of great structure and balance, redolent of plum jam and withered brambles. The persistent chocolaty aftertaste is harmonious and enticing. Over the years it gradually refines its characteristics to achieve classic elegance and composure.

Goes well with braised meats, stewed game, roasts and mature cheeses such as pecorino and Parmigiano Reggiano.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2007 Barolo Ravera shows marvelous depth and richness, but is not hugely different from the Cascina Nuova, perhaps because the vintage has such a strong influence in both wines. It is a big, muscular Barolo endowed with layers of dark fruit, mocha, leather, licorice and smoke. A large, scaled dramatic finish rounds out this compelling, totally delicious Barolo. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025.

"From the celebrated Ravera cru, Elvio Cogno delivers a classic and elegant expression of Nebbiolo with tight tannins, long aging potential and nuanced aromas of small berry fruit, cola, leather, licorice and smoky cedar tones. Save this wine in your cellar 10 years or more."
93 Points

"Good bright medium red. Pure red cherry, rose petal, camphor, menthol and spices on the classic Barolo nose. Round, ripe and full, with impressive medicinal reserve to the sweet flavors of red berries, flowers and spices. Finishes chewy and very long, youthfully medicinal but not hard, with a broad, firm dusting of tannins and lovely lift. From 40- and 50-year-old lampia and michet vines kept to a moderate crop level by two green harvests."
93 Points

"Very intense aromas of dried fruits with white truffles. Full bodied, with chewy tannins that are polished and velvety. Goes on for minutes. Love the intensity and class. Give it three to four years more of bottle age. "

Learn About Nebbiolo

Nebbiolo(neh-bee-OH-low) The King of Piedmont Nebbiolo is the key grape in the wines of Barolo and Barbaresco. It is not the most planted variety, but it does make the most distinctive and age-worthy wines. Native to Piedmont, Nebbiolo is a bit of a soil snob - it's finicky about where it grows and has long been the honored red grape of Northern Italy...
