"Dark cherries, menthol, flowers and tar are some of the many notes that take shape in the 2008 Barolo Bricco Pernice. There is an inner sweetness allied to power and structure in the Bricco Pernice that is remarkable. Unlike the 2009s, the 2008 Bricco Pernice needs at least a few years in bottle, but it is a gorgeous, gorgeous wine. Hints of scorched earth, dried herbs, wild flowers and tar meld together on the beautifully delineated finish. Cogno gave the 2008 36 months in cask...95" Antonio Galloni, 5/13 "A wine with blueberry, chocolate, cedar and cacao. Full body, with velvety tannins and a juicy, fruity and fresh finish. Needs three to four years to soften. Cogno makes rich yet refined wines. A beauty. Better after 2016...93" JS 7/13 "The 2008 Barolo Bricco Pernice brings us back to a cooler vintage and a more humid growing season. Tertiary aromas of cured meat, dried tobacco and button mushroom are beginning to show, and they add a lovely edge to this fabulous wine. At the back are brightly polished tones of cassis and dried fruit that give the wine the softness and the plushness it needs. The wine paints a pretty portrait of the harvest. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2025...93" WA 6/13 "A visit to the cellars of Elvio Cogno is always a fascinating learning experience. I had my first taste of a beautifully fresh and fragrant white wine made with the Nascetta grape here a few years ago. The variety was new to many of us then, but thanks to vintner Valter Fissore and his wife Nadia Cogno it is strongly identified with the territory today. More recently, the couple started to produce limited cases of Barbera d’Alba made from pre-phylloxera vines (most more than a century old). That they were able to tap into that ancient genetic patrimony in this well-trodden part of Italy is something of a small miracle. They are also credited with putting the little-known Novello township on the Barolo map."
