AZIENDA AGRICOLA ELVIO COGNO BAROLO RAVERA 2012 is available to buy in increments of 1
A rich, compelling Barolo with focused dark fruit and savoury character. We love this for the density of flavour and expressive charisma that balances out the firm acid-tannin structure, making it - at a pinch - decantable with food now. But preferably take this chance to put a few of these stunners in the cellar before it's all gone.
94/100 Antonio Galloni, Vinous (2012 Vintage)
"The 2012 Barolo Ravera is another gorgeous wine from Cogno. An exotic melange of orange peel, cinnamon, spices, licorice and dried rose petal lifts from the glass as this sublime, nuanced Barolo gradually opens up. Deceptively medium in body, the 2012 Ravera captures the pedigree of this great Barolo site. The Ravera emerges from 70 year-old vines, 60% Lampia and 40% Michet in terms of clonal composition. With time, the Ravera gains weight, power and intensity, all with streaks of supporting tannin that give the wine its sense of proportion. Drink 2022 - 2043."
94/100 International Wine Report​ (2012 Vintage)
"The 2012 Ravera Barolo from Elvio Cogno is absolutely sensational. As this traditional style Barolo begins to open it releases gorgeous aromas of dried red berries woven together with dried florals and tar with hints of dried leather and lovely mineral notes all coming together beautifully in the glass. This continues to impress with its remarkable balance and focus as it heads in the the ultra-long finish. Overall, the Ravera is among the more impressive wines from this vintage and should continue to evolve for years to come. Drink 2017-2030."
94/100​ Wine Enthusiast (2012 Vintage)
"Lovely scents of rose petal, iris and perfumed berry slowly take shape in this striking wine. The full-bodied palate delivers ripe red cherry, licorice, white pepper, cinnamon and sage alongside firm, fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity. A mineral note wraps around the finish. Hold for even more complexity. Drink 2019 - 2024."
92/100 Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate (2012 Vintage) 
"The Elvio Cogno 2012 Barolo Ravera sees fruit sourced from a single vineyard that spans from Barolo to the nearby Novello township (where the winery is located). The wine follows faithfully in the house style that sees an impeccable, albeit very opulent and bold aromatic profile. This wine lives up to the Cogno promise of rich, luscious fruit flavours with bold cherry, spice, leather and tobacco. Delicate tones of cola, truffle and licorice give lift at the back. The tannins are young and show some astringent tightness that needs extra time to integrate."
17.5/20 Jancis Robinson (2012 Vintage)
"A shade deeper ruby than the Cascina Nuova and with a narrow orange rim. Intensely perfumed with a layer of spice and minerals. Really distinct and fresh and dances over the palate. Racy and elegant, followed by compact tannins. Crystal clear. Drink 2016 - 2028​."
