Forbes: A Tour of Barolo – Featuring Elvio Cogno
Valter Fissore produces several beautifully crafted offerings of Barolo from the Ravera vineyard in the commune of Novello. His “Vigna Elena” riserva, made entirely from the rosé clone of Nebbiolo, offers remarkable finesse and lightness; it is a stunning wine.
Several other producers also offer a Barolo from the Ravera vineyard, including Vietti and Paolo Scavino. The floral notes and charm of this site are apparent in these wines; Ravera today is rightfully acclaimed as one of the most important MGA in the entire zone.
