"The 2012 Barolo Ravera is another gorgeous wine from Cogno. An exotic melange of orange peel, cinnamon, spices, licorice and dried rose petal lifts from the glass as this sublime, nuanced Barolo gradually opens up. Deceptively medium in body, the 2012 Ravera captures the pedigree of this great Barolo site. The Ravera emerges from 70 year-old vines, 60% Lampia and 40% Michet in terms of clonal composition. With time, the Ravera gains weight, power and intensity, all with streaks of supporting tannin that give the wine its sense of proportion." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"Starts out softly, with cherry, floral, licorice and earth notes, building in intensity to a long finish. Elegant yet tightly wound, featuring a compact, if long and fresh, finish. Needs time. Best from 2020 through 2034. 1,380 cases made." Wine Spectator

"The Elvio Cogno 2012 Barolo Ravera sees fruit sourced from a single vineyard that spans from Barolo to the nearby Novello township (where the winery is located). The wine follows faithfully in the house style that sees an impeccable, albeit very opulent and bold aromatic profile. This wine lives up to the Cogno promise of rich, luscious fruit flavors with bold cherry, spice, leather and tobacco. Delicate tones of cola, truffle and licorice give lift at the back. The tannins are young and show some astringent tightness that needs extra time to integrate." Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #225

"Pale crimson. Heady with very pure aromas. Super-clean perfume and dry on the end but admirably fresh." JancisRobinson.com
