A supple, round red, ideal for anyone wanting an approachable Nebbiolo with all the bells and whistles.
Wine Advocate 90: "The estate's 2006 Montegrilli (50% Nebbiolo, 50% Barbera) is a blockbuster. It possesses awesome richness in a big, fruit-driven style. Despite the wine's size, it remains vibrant and very well-delineated, qualities that are found in the top wines of 2006. The tannins build on the long finish, so the wine will clearly need another year or two in bottle. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2016.
Cogno remains an under-the-radar source for delicious wines. This is an impressive line-up from top to bottom."
