Anas-Cetta is a historical wine of the commune of Novello. Since the first limited production run in 1994, working with tenacity and love for the land of the Langhe, the Elvio Cogno winery has used the memories of old-timers in Novello to produce a wine for the youngsters of the third millennium. Mentioned in winemaking documents as early as the second half of the 19th century, this white wine of Mediterranean origin has a sapidity reminiscent of the great hot-clime varietals such as Vermentino (from which, according to some ampelographical studies, it may derive).
Its pleasant, warm and balanced structure makes it ideal as an accompaniment to vegetable dishes, white meats, fish and cream cheeses.
The Elvio Cogno winery sits on the top of Bricco Ravera, a hill near Novello in the Langhe area of Piedmont, one of the eleven communes in which Barolo is produced. The cellar is housed in an 18th-century manor farm surrounded by 11 hectares of land, all occupied by vineyards. After a long and fruitful partnership with Marcarini at La Morra, in 1990 Cogno bought a splendid historical farm in the family village and restored it to its former glory. Today the winery nestles in a breathtaking landscape between the hills and the sky. At sunset on clear days, a wonderful turquoise horizon frames the farm like a painting. Hence the name of this exceptional wine land: ?Petorchino?, or blue feet. The Cogno family has been making wine in the Langhe area for four generations: the values of history and tradition handed down by father Elvio are enhanced by the freshness and innovation introduced by his daughter Nadia and her husband Valter Fissore.
