Elvio Cogno Cascina Nuova Barolo DOCG – 2016 – Decanter – 93 Points
The Novello township has gained renown largely thanks to the Elvio Cogno estate which counts 11.5 of its 15 hectares in the cru of Ravera. Cascina Nuova is the most accessible of the property’s four Baroli, assembling fruit from a 1.5ha site of young plantings. The nose radiates prettiness: strawberry and raspberry underpin dewy rose, lilac and anise. Plump, succulent fruit remains buoyant and is gracefully buttressed by fine yet persistent structure. Zesty orange flavours refresh the finish.
