They are a fourth generation winemaking family, but it’s the current generation that has put the entire wine world on notice. A few years back, the preeminent Italian wine critic, Antonio Galloni declared, “Elvio Cogno is one of the hottest wineries in Piedmont right now. Proprietors Nadia Cogno and Valter Fissore have been on a tear of late, and show no signs whatsoever of slowing down.” Huge praise, but it’s proven again and again to be true.
Last year, the Cogno’s received two perfect 100-point reviews. The first came courtesy of Wine & Spirits for the 2016 Elvio Cogno “Bricco Pernice” Barolo, a usually drop-dead gorgeous wine that was carved off their five-acre plot in the Ravera Cru.
This is the first time I’ve ever offered up this very serious white wine from this iconic producer. It’s not just some light, fun white wine – but rather a more serious, more robust offering from Piedmont that has the combination of pure juicy citrus fruit, with a rich creamy mid-palate and no shortage of depth and elegance to the mouthfeel. It’s a terrific Italian white that hits way, way above today’s price tag.

A slightly more rounded feel can be found in the 2021 Nascetta Del Comune Di Novello Anas-Cetta, with more yellow fruit and chamomile followed by notes of wet stone, fresh orchard peaches, and apricot. It also reveals a light flinty note aromatically, with a hint of baking spice on the finish.
