Our production range is rounded off by this great expression of the Nebbiolo grape. Like Cogno’s other wines, this Barbaresco is elegant and structured, with a fiercely independent character. This isn’t a Barbaresco that wants to mimic its cousin Barolo, but a wine that demands respect for its full, strong identity, from vineyard to cellar. This is the wager of a Barolo producer going against the stream, grabbing the chance to come to terms with a historical wine, a supreme expression of the Langhe hills. This wine is born thanks to an extremely valuable collaboration with a friend and producer in Neive., which helped the Cogno family to embark on this new adventure.
