Elvio Cogno Barbera D'alba Pre Phylloxera 2012
A bright, rich ruby colour with intense purplish highlights. The aroma is enveloping, aromatic and deep with noticeable spices on first impact and raspberry, strawberry and ripe cherry notes. Finishing with pleasant harmonies of wild flowers. On the palate it is well structured, fresh and the acidity is excellently balanced, the tannin robe is embracing and the flavours remind you of sour cherries, blackberries and prunes.
Wine SpectatorSucculent acidity defines the bright cherry and floral notes, while a touch of oak adds spice and texture. Everything is in the right place as this turns chewy on the finish. Drink now through 2018. 167 cases made.
