96 points "The collection concludes with the truly stunning 2007 Barolo Riserva Vigna Elena. This wine radiates with a youthful looking ruby appearance and delightful aromatic complexity that spans the entire Nebbiolo playbook. From black licorice to dried cherry, mint and pressed violets, you get it all. I drank from the bottle one and two days after it was open and the wine displayed even more breathtaking beauty and complexity. It has the bones for some serious cellar aging should you decide to hold this bottle. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2035...96+" 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." "Aromas of plums and berries with hints of toasted oak. Almost Port-like in the nose. Full body, with integrated, fine tannins and a fresh finish. This is perfect now. Shows beautiful depth of fruit and richness. I love the generosity of this vintage and Cogno captured the quality. There is so much in the future in the bottle here. Drink or hold...94" JS 7/13" Best 2014-2035
