I have always loved Walter Fissore’s wines, but his 2006 Barolo from Elvio Cogno is just magnificent.  Soft, supple tannins are backed by a racy, lightening bolt of acidity. This wine is seductive, with violets, lovely ripe black cherries and a steely wet sandstone aromatics.

What’s the only thing that makes a masterpiece  like this wine even better? If you said a salty double-cut lamb chop, grilled perfectly and served next to a plate of beef cheek ravioli… you would be correct.

Carnevino this Barolo is a love song, written just for you.
