2012 Barbaresco Bordini
The vines are planted in Neive and produce a wine that combines both a full character and a sense of elegance.
`The 2012 Barbaresco Bordini shows thin lines and an upfront personality. This is a bright and feminine expression with a pretty bouquet of blue flowers, wild berries, dried blueberries and blanched almond. This wine was first produced in 2006 and is one of the newest editions to the Elvio Cogno portfolio. It shows a delicate and elegant approach with silky tannins and cheerful freshness. ` 91 pts, Monica Larner, robertparker.com `Christmas spices, orange peel, sweet red cherries, mint, leather and cedar are some of the notes that blossom in Cogno`s 2012 Barbaresco Bordini. A wine that captures the breadth and structure of Neive, the Bordini is an excellent choice for drinking over the next decade or so. Like all of the wines of the year, the Bordini is likely to offer its best drinking sooner rather than later.` 92pts, Antonio Galloni, vinous.com
` Juicy, fragrant, very savoury and austere yet with enough fruit to make it drinkable. Just a touch of bitter herby character on the finish ` - 17 points, Richard Hemming MW - www.jancisrobinson.com
