    Barolo Ravera "Vigna Elena" Riserva DOCG 2014 <br>MAGNUM in OWC

    Barely 10,000 bottles are produced each year of the Barolo Riserva "Vigna Elena", which comes entirely from vines of the Barolo single vineyard Ravera. Medium ruby red with orange reflections. Very compressed fruit, complex, balsamic and with an endless depth and excellent ageing potential. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Cask sample. Lustrous mid ruby with orange tinges. Savoury and a little saline on the nose, with brooding raspberry fruit underneath. Racy acidity perfectly tied into the savoury raspberry fruit. Coating powdery tannins build up on the finish. Vibrant and captivating long finish." Jancis Robinson

    "A tight, firm Barolo with dried-mushroom, floral and dark-berry aromas and flavors. It’s full-bodied and chewy with a linear flow of tannins and acidity through the center, yet it remains focused and transparent with beautiful character." James Suckling

    "The Elvio Cogno portfolio concludes with the special 2014 Barolo Riserva Ravera Vigna Elena. This wine from the cooler 2014 vintage stands far apart from the other new releases from the 2015 and 2016 vintages also hitting the market at this time. Ephemeral, fragile and delicate, the wine shows a softer caliber of fruit, with wild berry, cassis, smoke, tar and powdered licorice. There are earthy notes at the back with truffle essence and forest floor. This vintage offers a heightened level of complexity and nuance. This wine is a pure expression of the Rosé clone of Nebbiolo that is known for its lighter color and delicate aromas. A mere 3,000 bottles exist." Robert Parker

    "The 2014 Barolo Riserva Ravera Vigna Elena is seamless in the glass, with stunning balance and all of the pedigree of this year. Medium in body and gracious, it shows elegant notes of rose petal, mint, white pepper, sweet tobacco and dried flowers. Sweet red stone fruit marry with a classic sense of austerity. All of the elements here come together in this stunning, gloriously beautiful Barolo from Cogno. Deeply expressive and intense, the 2014 Vigna Elena is not an obvious wine, but instead it is ethereal, lifted and with pure class." Vinous

    "Beguiling aromas of pressed rose, perfumed berry, dark spice and new leather mingle together on this fragrant, enticing red. Showing extraordinary finesse, the chiseled delicious palate delivers juicy raspberry, tart red cherry, cinnamon, star anise and chopped mint. A smoky mineral note graces the finish while taut lithe tannins and bright acidity provide elegant support—another beauty from what was overall a difficult vintage." Wine Enthusiast
