2016 Elvio Cogno "Ravera" Barolo (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1486607 99 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark 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. *Cellar Selection* (KO) Inner quote mark (7/2020)

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Of the many great contributions made by the winemaking team at Elvio Cogno, perhaps the greatest is the importance they brought to the Ravera cru of Novello. Little-known before their efforts, this vineyard has risen in high regard in recent years and continues to show impressive potential. The 2016 Barolo Ravera offers an important education in why this site deserves the spotlight. The wine shows terrific balance and depth, with rich fruit aromas framed by smoke, tar, ferrous earth and tangy licorice. The tannins are softly contoured, and the wine moves over the palate with profound length. Interestingly, two Nebbiolo clones, Lampia and Michet, are blended to make this wine.

95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Crystalline purity to this Barolo with red currants, fruit tea, lemons, freshly squeezed oranges and rosemary. Medium-to full-bodied with inward-looking, sophisticated tannins that thread vibrant red fruit in ribbon-like shapes. Inner quote mark (9/2019)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2016 Barolo Ravera shows all of the energy and tension this site is so well-known for. Penetrating acids and veins of tannin give the Ravera its drive and overall feel. Naturally, the 2016 is going to need at least a few years to be at its best, but it has tremendous breeding and character to burn. White pepper, mint, sweet red cherry and citrus add to the wine's high-toned profile. This is another stellar wine from Cogno. (AG) Inner quote mark (2/2020)
