A wine like this gives you an evermore selective expression of fruit from one of the best parcels from within the greater Ravera cru. However it also comes from a more challenging vintage. The Elvio Cogno 2018 Barolo Ravera Bricco Pernice is held back for an additional year before its commercial release. That puts you in a position of choosing between the more affordable Barolo from Ravera and this more carefully culled selection of fruit. It makes sense to side with 2019 although this expression from 2018 will appeal to those who appreciate the nuances of vintage and place. Those Barolo lovers are also quite familiar with the Cogno house style that tends to favor the power muscle and staying power that Ravera is known for. You should also be able to coax out more years of bottle age with this wine. 5000 bottles were released. I notice that the brand name seems to be transitioning away from Elvio Cogno to Cogno at least in terms of how it appears on the front label. Published: Aug 24 2023

The 2018 Barolo Bricco Pernice shows the limits of the year in its angular tannins slightly dried out fruit and overall angular feel. Dark cherry leather game incense and tobacco lend quite a bit of aromatic complexity. Its hard to get past the rough contours. Even so this is nicely done for the year. (Drink between 2025-2033)
