Join us at 7.30pm on Friday 15th for a virtual tasting with Valter Fissore of Elvio Cogno.
Valter, who’ll be ably assisted by his wife Nadia (daughter of Elvio Cogno) is a hugely charismatic and engaging character. We’ll hear how, alongside Elvio, they turned a once-overlooked Barolo cru to become one of the most important of the region. Over almost 30 years together, their hard work and graft in the vineyards changed the fortunes of Ravera, a hillside Valter is now master of. The last ten years have been a golden era for Piedmont with Valter leading as one of the best winemakers of his generation.
Valter will talk us the wines below, starting with his Nascetta, a rare Piedmontese white of real distinction, from a grape variety he has brought back from virtual extinction. For the reds, we’ll focus on the 2014 vintage and compare the great Ravera alongside his Barbaresco Bordini. We’ll no doubt also hear Valter talk animatedly of the recently released 2016s, his finest vintage to date.
