From Michele Reverdito’s favourite cru comes Barolo Bricco Cogni, planted by Silvano Reverdito in 1967, the year he was married. An aromatic powerhouse in 2016 with dark cherry, plum, lavender, spice and licorice all melding beautifully together. This is super-impressive in the early going. Truly a Barolo of class and character, the Bricco Cogni has so much to offer.
Garnacha (50%) and Tempranillo (50%)
Clean, bright purple-red colour. Lovely aromas of red and blackberries against a background of roasted notes, anise and cocoa. Very friendly and balanced in the palate, showing good structure and volume but fresh and lightly spicy as well. Smooth and delicious.
Syrah 40 %, Grenache 30 %, Carignan 30%
Lovely deep red colour, dark even. Black fruit nose, almost all black fruits: cherry, blackberry, blackcurrant, cooked blueberry and damsons. Toasted spelt loaf aromas, Havana cigar and cocoa beans (crushed naturally). Full-bodied mouth-feel, firm and already nicely integrated despite the powerful tannins. Serve with risotto with porcini mushrooms.
