Elvio Cogno Pre-Phylloxera Barbera d'Alba is made from 100 percent Barbera.
Produced from one of the last archaic vines of the Langhe area, an open air museum of viticulture from a time gone by, the plants are over one hundred years old. The vines are not grafted but propagated through cuttings, thus maintaining, over the decades, the original Barbera characteristics.
The vineyard has an excellent exposure and sandy-chalky terrain, situated in Berri near La Morra, which guaranteed the vines a natural protection from Phylloxera and imparts unique and exclusive characteristics to the vines. The intriguing simplicity of the vines and their typical, traditional charm that derives from the microclimate and favorable altitude make a one of-a-kind wine.
The low production per hectare guarantees an intensely rare and rich organoleptic concentration. The wine is refined in oak casks that slowly develop the primary aromas. Pleasant and refined, complex even as a young wine but able to withstand bottle aging, it expresses its solid uniqueness even over the years.
A bright, rich ruby color with intense purplish highlights. The aroma is enveloping, aromatic and deep with noticeable spices on first impression and raspberry, strawberry and ripe cherry notes in background. Finish with pleasant harmonies of wild flowers. On the palate it is well structured, fresh and the acidity is excellently balanced, the tannins texture is embracing and flavors remind you of sour cherries, blackberries and prunes.
MCV ALV Sauvignon Blanc is made from 100 percent Sauvignon Blanc.
Aromas of guava, lime, wet Stone and citrus blossom. Flavors of passion fruit, stone fruit, crushed stone and keyur lime.This is a bigger, rounder style Sauvignon Blanc that maintains good acidity. Named after the winemaker’s sister, this wine is perfect for drinking now.
"This is a refreshing counterpoint to this winery's richer reds. Quite light in the glass, persistent aromas of lime, makrut lime leaf, lemongrass and a hint of guava show on the nose, which also offers a rainy cement minerality. The grippy sip frames ripe but fresh flavors of stone fruit and passionfruit. - MATT KETTMANN"
