Elvio Cogno Barolo Riserva Ravera Vigna Elena – 2012 – The Wine Advocate – 95 Points
The 2012 Barolo Riserva Ravera Vigna Elena is a dark and savory wine that has already passed into the magical realm of its tertiary evolution. The bouquet is extremely fine and equally complex with dried berry, toasted spice, tar, forest floor and freshly shaved truffle. That truffle note gives the wine a lot of territorial identity and immense charm. The tannins have integrated and show a very fine and polished nature. Only 4,000 bottles of this beautiful wine were produced.
