PIEDMONT
PIEDMONT - the King of Vino Italiano
 

Located in the far north-west of Italy, Piedmont sits at the foot of the Western Alps – the name Piemonte means 'the foot of the mountains' – which forms its border with France and Switzerland. It is the home of more DOCG wines than any other Italian region. Nearly 84% of all the areas wine production fall under a DOC/G designation. The area has no IGT classification. 

The well-known and respected names in Piedmont are Barolo and Barbaresco. Nebbiolo wines are known for their tar and roses bouquet, and the cellaring potential. The Barbera grape is the most widely planted variety in all of the Piedmont and makes a juicy, muscular red wine that is not as tannic as Barolo and Barbaresco.

About Elvio Cogno

WINE & SPIRITS MAGAZINE - WINERY OF THE YEAR 2016


Elvio Cogno won the Wine & Spirits title of “Winery of the Year 2016” for the 5th time. The wines of Nadia Cogno & Valter Fissore have once again distinguished themselves out of 15,000 wines blind-tasted by the magazine’s tasting editors over the course of the year. The Cogno family has created and consolidated a brand that focuses on the Menzione Geografica, or cru, of Ravera of Novello.

In the previous 13 years,  this influential magazine honoured 100 wineries from all around the world, who delivers the best overall performances in the magazine's tastings conducted during the past 12 months.


 
The Elvio Cogno Winery was formed in the footsteps of master winemaker Elvio and continues to produce wines that respect the history of the family today. They maintain, unaltered, traditions and styles that express the flavor and grape varieties of the Langhe. Township of Novello has always been considered the best of its Langhe surrounding territory, and gives Elvio Cogno wines their uniqueness that, overtime, has become a mark of distinction, their identifying character, and a symbol of the wisdom handed down over the generations.

"If making perfect wine means making standard wine,
then we don’t want to make a perfect wine."

Valter Fissore, winemaker
 
The Cogno production philosophy is traditional, which includes long fermentation and aging in large barrels. Their relationship with the earth, however, is innovative. They seek to understand the depths of that elusive concept of terroir, strengthening the rapport between viticulturists, vines, earth, and environment — a mix of factors that is translated into elegant, smooth, and characteristic wines.
