Cogno 2016 Ravera Barolo
The 2016 Barolo Ravera bursts onto the palate with blue fruits, dark cherries, mint, licorice and spices. It shows gorgeous fleshiness and depth, with energetic, deep layers and tense complexity that flows easily into the long, evocative finish. The aromas and flavors blend together minute after minute, as the wine sits in the glass. A perfect vintage that became a perfect wine.
Wine Enthusiast – 99 Points
From the estate that proved the extraordinary quality of the Ravera subzone, this compelling wine opens with heady scents of rose, iris, perfumed berry, new leather and camphor. Focused and full bodied, the precise palate is delicious and firmly structured, featuring ripe red cherry, crushed raspberry, licorice and tobacco framed in tightly knit fine-grained tannins. Fresh acidity keeps it beautifully balanced and lends youthful tension. Drink 2024–2056.
