95pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

This is a medium-bodied Nebbiolo from a hot vintage with a ruby-tinged appearance. The 2017 Barolo Ravera Bricco Pernice shows generous inner fiber and richness with dried cherry, blackberry, plum and dark spice. Fruit for this wine comes from a beautiful amphitheater of vines with the perched town of Novello high up on the skyline. I love the especially smooth and soft quality to what is a powerful and lasting wine.

95pts Wine Spectator

A pretty red, boasting rose, strawberry and raspberry flavors accented by mown hay, leather, iron and tobacco. In terms of texture and structure, this is like an iron fist in a velvet glove.

94pts James Suckling

Deep-set nose of bright, spicy cherry with layers of minerals, from chalk to river stones. Medium-to full-bodied with really nicely placed, still firm tannins and excellent spicy and mineral drive on the finish. There’s a cool feel to the palate. This is in the full bloom of youth and, though attractive now, will age nicely.

Winemaker Notes

The 2017 Barolo Ravera Bricco Pernice, characterized by sweet notes of ripe and juicy fruit perfectly blended with intriguing hints of licorice, violet, black pepper, and undergrowth, is identified as the most classic of the Barolo wines signed by Elvio Cogno. It is a complex and multi-faceted wine, which finds its harmony thanks to the excellent balance between dense tannic texture, good freshness, and savoriness, for a result of great dynamism and depth.
