The great dichotomy in Barolo has always been traditional versus modern, an argument which can be grossly over-simplified as French barriques versus large oak casks(of ancient Slovenian oak). The philosophy at Elvio Cogno is keeping it traditional, but appealingly approachable. The result from their high-quality grapes and experience made beautiful and balanced wines: rich but not excessively so, amenable but elegant, with a classic character and feel. Cogno wines seek to transmit emotions, to be remembered. The great wines of Elvio Cogno are born to address the great challenges of winemaking. They represent simply: Enthusiasm and Sincerity of Langhe Tradition.
