Following in the footsteps of Elvio the maestro, the Elvio Cogno winery continues to produce wines that tell the family history without altering the traditions, styles and flavors the Langhe area conjures up through the variety of its grapes. The great wines of Elvio Cogno are born in the old granaries of a farm converted to address the great challenges of winemaking. Through careful, rational vineyard management-without pushing things to an extreme or forcing, with low yields per hectare and respect for the organic balance of the vine. 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.
