Barbera d Alba Bricco dei Merli Elvio Cogno 2011 (92AG) (750ML)
90 WA
"The 2011 Barbera d'Alba Bricco dei Merli wraps around the palate with gorgeous depth. Dark raspberries, cherries, plums, spices and leather all flesh out in a voluptuous, layered Barbera that captures the essence of the vintage. Rich, silky and caressing, the 2011 impresses for its balance, depth and personality...92" Antonio Galloni 10/13 "Cogno shows an expert hand with the 2011 Barbera d’Alba Bricco dei Merli. The wine opens with an inky dark appearance and none of the nervous edginess you sometimes find with this grape. Black cherry, tar, dried rosemary and fresh tobacco leaf make for a very enjoyable succession. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2016...90" WA 6/13 "A visit to the cellars of Elvio Cogno is always a fascinating learning experience. I had my first taste of a beautifully fresh and fragrant white wine made with the Nascetta grape here a few years ago. The variety was new to many of us then, but thanks to vintner Valter Fissore and his wife Nadia Cogno it is strongly identified with the territory today. More recently, the couple started to produce limited cases of Barbera d’Alba made from pre-phylloxera vines (most more than a century old). That they were able to tap into that ancient genetic patrimony in this well-trodden part of Italy is something of a small miracle. They are also credited with putting the little-known Novello township on the Barolo map."
