Elvio Cognos Barbaresco Bordini is classy, elegant and polished. A nuanced wine for the year. Sweet tobacco, crushed flowers, mint and dried cherries are all laced together nicely. The 2013 is decidedly restrained in style, especially for this part of Neive, where wines tend to be broader and more ample in feel. Scents of Christmas cake, dried flowers, orange peel and spice add closing shades of nuance.
