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.
Last month, the Cognos once again saw one of their wines on Wine Spectator’s Top 100 List, a feat they’ve accomplished countless times now yet it still remains incredibly impressive and well deserved.

This is a beautiful wine that is bright, punchy, tart, lively and fruity all at once. The Elvio Cogno 2021 Langhe Nebbiolo Montegrilli (with 18,000 bottles made) does its best to satisfy your easy-drinking needs. The wine concludes with an elegant dusting of crushed stone. You get terrific value with this vintage of Montegrilli.
