Barolo Bricco Cogni
DRY & FRUITY
Classic big Barolo with a long life! It is made in the best vintages in very limited quantities. The wine comes from a very small slope of pure limestone facing southwest in la Morra. The area is just 1.5 hectares with very old vines with low yields - in a good year as 2014, 4000 bottles are bottled! It is a classic large Barolo with rich and complex scent with notes of spices and licorice. The taste is fine and elegant, harmoniously balanced with the tannins and rich, full and complex.
TØR & FRUGTIG
Klassisk stor Barolo med et langt liv! Den laves i de bedste årgange i stærk begrænsede mængder. Vinen kommer fra en ganske lille skråning af ren kalk vendt stik sydvest i la Morra. Arealet er blot 1,5 hektar med meget gamle vinstokke med lavt udbytte -i godt år som 2014 tappes 4000 flasker! Det er en klassisk stor Barolo med rig og kompleks duft med noter af krydderier og lakrids. Smagen er fin og elegant, harmonisk balanceret med tanninerne og rig, fyldig og kompleks.

ABOUT THE WINERY
Michele Reverdito took over the domain from his father in 1999, a vineyard of 22 hectares in la Morra, which delivers approx. 70,000 bottles. He is assisted by his sister Sabina in the celler and in the vineyards by his parents. The methods are sustainable - insecticides, pesticides or fertilizers are not used here. What distinguishes the domain is a balance of the wines that both cater for the grape characters and at the same time have a fruit which gives even Barolo's from single fields a very wide drinking window. Gambero Rosso writes: "Reverdito offers character and depth in wines at very reasonable prices".
Michele Reverdito overtog domænet fra faderen i 1999, en vingård på nu 22 hektar i la Morra og nabokommuner, som årligt leverer ca. 70.000 fl. Han får i kælderen hjælp af søsteren Sabina og i vinbjergene af sine forældre. Metoderne er bæredygtige - her bruges ikke insektgifte, pesticider eller kunstgødning. Det, der udmærker domænet, er en balance i vinene, der både tilgodeser druekaraktererne og samtidig har en tilgængelig frugtighed, som giver selv Barolo’er fra enkeltmarker et meget bredt drikkevindue. Gambero Rosso skriver: ”Reverdito tilbyder karakter og dybde i vine til særdele rimelige priser”.
If Pinot Noir is the world's most tantalising grape, Nebbiolo runs it a close second – for very similar reasons. While the red burgundy grape has been slow to travel happily from its birthplace, and is only just showing signs of settling down in places such as Oregon, Australia, South Africa and cooler parts of California, good Nebbiolo wine is still extremely difficult to find outside its homeland in north-west Italy. Yet the best of these home-grown products are so uniquely delicious that winemakers all over the world are enticed to give it a try. It's one of the few grapes you can sometimes identify simply by its colour alone, for it tends to take on a brick-orange tinge at the rim of its blackish ruby relatively early in its often-long life. Perhaps the most wonderful thing about Nebbiolo is its perfume. The wine is typically intensely aromatic, developing the most extraordinarily haunting bouquet in which, variously, roses, autumn undergrowth, woodsmoke, violets and tar can often be found – together with a greater variety of other ingredients than most other grapes. On the palate, the wine is typically high in acidity and, until after many years in bottle, tannins.
