The Elvio Cogno Barolo Ravera is brilliant garnet-red in colour with orange highlights. Firm, elegant and potent on the nose, the Elvio Cogno Barolo Ravera has scents of rose, mint and tobacco, scents which meld in the course of time into spices, coffee, licorice, 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 the Elvio Cogno Barolo Ravera will gradually refine its characteristics to achieve classic elegance and composure.
"This beautiful, luminously hued Barolo opens with enticing scents of perfumed berry, dark spice, eucalyptus, violet and forest floor. The savory palate combines elegance and structure, delivering juicy red cherry, raspberry compote, star anise and wild mint framed in taut, refined tannins that give it a smooth but firm texture. Bright acidity keeps energized. What a stunner. Drink 2024–2038." - Wine Enthusiast, 97 points
