Cogno Barbaresco "Bordini" 2016

51.00

Our production range is rounded off by this great expression of the nebbiolo grape. Like Cogno’s other wines, the Barbaresco is also elegant and structured, but with a fiercely independent character. This isn’t a Barbaresco out to imitate its cousin Barolo, but a wine that demands respect for its full, strong identity, both in the vineyard and in the cellar. Here we have a Barolo producer going against the grain to gamble on Barbaresco; instead of keeping a distance, Cogno grabs the chance to come to terms with a historical wine that is another supreme expression of the Langhe hills. This wine is born of the invaluable collaboration of a friend and producer in Neive. It is thanks to him that the Cogno family has been able to embark on this new adventure.
