Winemaker Notes

Barolo Bricco Pernice, named after a rock on which courting partridgesbuild their nests, is the very latest wine from Cogno. The fruit of yearsand 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 ofthe Ravera cru, where the exceptional microclimate makes for superbBarolo — 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 stylisticprecepts 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 ahint of damp soil, ripe red fruit and subtle spiciness. Harmonious andwell 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.

RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2005 Barolo Bricco Pernice is a new wine made from a parcel of the Ravera vineyard in Novello. It is another big, imposing wine imbued with masses of dark fruit, leather, spices and menthol. A modern expression of ripeness meets a traditional interpretation of structure in this rich, compelling Barolo. Sweet, balsamic notes carry through to the long finish. The Bricco Pernice spent 24 months in 25-30 hectoliter oak casks. Simply put, this is an awesome bottle of Barolo. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025. 93+Points.

Wine & Spirits
Scents of raspberries and truffles combine in this sophisticated, formidable wine. The tannins feel cool and fruit driven, earthy and dark red, their structural strength, more delicate than extracted. This grows on a five-acre parcel int the Ravera cru ot Novello, where Cogno farms the Lampia clone of nebbiolo at an elevation of 1,250 feet
WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
Barolo Bricco Pernice shows elegant and sophisticated layers of forest fruit, cassis, cola, granite and light smoke. The tannins are firm, drying and would help pair this pretty wine with creamy wild mushroom risotto.

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 18th-century 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 grandfather.

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.

Attracting the most glory, prestige and fame to the Piedmont region, Nebbiolo in all of its expressions—Barolo, Barbaresco, Roero, Ghemme and Gattinara—creates a complex wine, truly unique for its delicate qualities combined with strength and a great potential to improve over time.

But Nebbiolo isn’t all there is to red wine from Piedmont! Barbera is the most planted variety and historically most popular as a dependable, food-friendly, everyday wine.

Beyond these two, a surprising number of red varieties call Piedmont their home. Worth a try include Dolcetto for its bold concentration and aromas of spice cake. Other grapes to investigate include Freisa, Croatina, Brachetto, Grignolino and Pelaverga.
