Elvio Cogno Barbera d'Alba Pre-Phylloxe 2012
Not to be missed! With an annual production that never surpasses 2,000 bottles, this cuvee sells out fast. It is made from Barbera old vines that escaped the phylloxera European epidemic at the end of the 19th century. Aged in Slavonian oak tuns for 12 months, the wine is very seductive thanks to its fruit quality, silky texture and velvety tannins.
