Additional Information: Bricco Pernice is named after the rock on which courting partridges build their nest. “Pernice” translates as “partridge,” and “Bricco” is a hill.

Until a few years ago this was part of the Ravera Barolo cru; in recent years it has been expanded to incorporate the neighbouring hills. The fruit of years of hard work, this wine is a dream come true, made from the finest vineyard in Novello in the most historic part of the Ravera cru.
The label is designed by Elena, Elvio’s granddaughter.

The Cogno family has been making wine for four generations in Piedmont, during 1990, Elvio Cogno left a long and fruitful partnership with the well-regarded Barolo producer Marcarini at La Morra and purchased a18th-century farmhouse on the top of Bricco Ravera, a hill near Novello in the Langhe area.

(Novello is one of the 11 communes in which Barolo is produced.)
The farm is surrounded by 11 hectares of steeply sloped vineyards.
Elvio restored the manor, converted the old granaries to wine cellars and founded his eponymous winery. For the next 20 years, he devoted himself to the winemaking traditions handed down to him by his father and grandfather.

Elvio has now passed the torch to his daughter, Nadia, and her husband, Valter Fissore, who has worked beside Elvio for 25 years. Following in the footsteps of Elvio the Elvio Cogno winery continues to produce elegant wines without altering the traditions, styles and flavors of the Langhe, with its breathtaking quilted landscape and unique grape varieties.
