Critical Acclaim

W&S 93
Wine & Spirits

Scents of raspberries and truffles combine in this sophisticated, formidable wine. The tannins feel cool and fruit driven, earthy and dark red, their structural strength, more delicate than extracted. This grows on a five-acre parcel int the Ravera cru ot Novello, where Cogno farms the Lampia clone of nebbiolo at an elevation of 1,250 feet

RP 93
The Wine Advocate

The 2005 Barolo Bricco Pernice is a new wine made from a parcel of the Ravera vineyard in Novello. It is another big, imposing wine imbued with masses of dark fruit, leather, spices and menthol. A modern expression of ripeness meets a traditional interpretation of structure in this rich, compelling Barolo. Sweet, balsamic notes carry through to the long finish. The Bricco Pernice spent 24 months in 25-30 hectoliter oak casks. Simply put, this is an awesome bottle of Barolo. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025. 93+Points.

Wine Enthusiast

Barolo Bricco Pernice shows elegant and sophisticated layers of forest fruit, cassis, cola, granite and light smoke. The tannins are firm, drying and would help pair this pretty wine with creamy wild mushroom risotto.

After a long and fruitful partnership with Marcarini at La Morra, in 1990 Cogno bought a splendid historical farm in the family village and restored it... View More
