Description

Elvio Cogno, now one of the most renowned wineries for the production of Barolo, but the road to success was by no means easy. Born in 1936 with a dream of producing great Barolo, only after years of experience and collaborations with other wineries did he manage to buy a farmhouse in Novello in the 1980s. Finally in the 1990s, thanks also to the arrival of his daughter Nadia and brother-in-law Walter, the first label of Barolo “Ravera,” one of the most important crus in the commune of Novello, was released. The winery’s philosophy is absolutely traditional, with the exclusive use of large oak barrels and respect for the land, enhancing in the wines the characteristics of the soils, creating austere wines with a great capacity to evolve over time.
