Producer Guide: Elvio Cogno (Piedmont, Italy)

Boutique grower with 13 hectares in the heart of the Langhe. Theses are wines that are known for their elegance and finesse, almost Burgundian in style.

A white wine is produced from the very rare and little understood Nascetta variety. It is intense, floral and mineral driven.


Langhe DOC Nascetta 2013 by Elvio Cogna Herbaceous nose laced with intense lemon notes and white flower. The palate is weighty and oily with more ripe citrus fruit that is held together by strong acidity and balanced length.

Dolectto d'Alba DOC 'Vigna del Mandorla' 2015 by Elvio Cogno Vibrant colour is matched on the nose by jammy notes of fruit and spice. In the mouth it's light but concentrated.
