Elvio Cogno Bricco Pernice Barolo DOCG — 2016 – Vinous – 96 Points
The 2016 Barolo Bricco Pernice is absolutely gorgeous. The pedigree of the year comes through in the wine’s depth and stature. What a knockout. Ripe black cherry, lavender, spice, menthol, licorice, orange peel and rose petal are some of the many aromas and flavors that develop as the 2016 opens in the glass. Readers should be in no rush here. The 2017 is absolutely stellar.
