Wine Spectator: 94 Points

This is alluring for the strawberry cherry and currant flavors with details of iron tar and tobacco. Starts out silky in texture then the structure sneaks up on you as this red builds to a long finish. Best from 2025 through 2042. 625 cases made 350 cases imported.

Wine Advocate: 94 Points

The Elvio Cogno 2018 Barolo Ravera is becoming one of the most important wines in Novello and it performs very nicely in this more challenging vintage. In fact 2018 helps to cement Ravera's steadfast reputation precisely because it performs so well despite spells of humidity and heat. The wine shows small-berry detailing with rust and crushed stone at the back. There is a point of bitterness that accompanies the tannins of this full-bodied wine. Production is 15000 bottles.
