From a tiny vineyard of just one hectare, planted with Nebbiolo and which turns out to be Grandfather Eugenio's vineyard. Valter and Nadia make a wine with the grapes from this small estate that does not pretend to be a Barolo, but rather a varietal expression. For this reason, this wine is vinified in steel, where it is also aged for six months followed by another six months in the bottle. It is the essence of the great grape of the Langas, without further makeup.

This is a terrific Piedmont red to pair with a classic quiche Lorraine. The Elvio Cogno Langhe Nebbiolo Montegrilli is a delicate and fragile expression with bright accents of chopped mint and medicinal herb that hover over a core of wild cherry and dried raspberry. The wine delivers soft and smooth aromas that define the character of this pretty wine. Dusty tannins and some lingering mineral notes frame a polished finish. A portion of the wine sees whole-cluster fermentation, and winemaking is straightforward in stainless steel. Some 10,000 bottles were released.
