This DOC for blends was created in 1995 and they blend barbera and Nebbiolo for this wine black cherry and fresh floral notes red licorice spice and some dark spices nice complexity here bright zesty red and black berry fruit with pretty floral notes and exotic spices well built with a firm hand of acidity holding things together through the finish very long finish 45+

Surprisingly approachable considering the vintage. Sweet morello cherries, rose petals, moist earth... a very fresh & inviting nose. On the palate this is juicy, with the tannins grippy yet finely grained and the acidity balancing true sweet cherries. Medium bodied and not over extracted nor polluted with heavy oak.
This is delicious stuff, just after opening the bottle, yet even better after 4h decanting. And absolutely perfect with a medium-rare flank steak.
You just got to love Cogno’s lightness of touch with Nebbiolo.

Dried red fruit, licorice, plenty of zing. Could be bolder but no complaints here

Give it an hour and gritty tannins backed up with high acidity will wear out any drinker. It ain’t your fav bottle of burg where silky notes lead to empty bottle quickly. This monotone needs food.
