Elvio Cogno Bordini Barbaresco DOCG — 2017 – Vinous – 93 Points
The 2017 Barbaresco Bordini is a potent wine. A blast of black cherry, mocha, spice, sage, earthiness, licorice and smoke gives the Bordini a real sense of gravitas. Neive Barbarescos are known for their breadth. There is certainly plenty of size here. The 2017 is not exactly understated or elegant, but instead packs a serious punch that, not surprisingly, leans into the realm of Barolo.
