"Plenty of near-term appeal. Sweet red cherry, mint, crushed flowers, cinnamon and wild flowers are laced into the perfumed, silky finish" – Antonio Galloni "Renato Corino is one of the leading exponents of the modern school in Barolo." Antonio Galloni


Robin's Note:

La Morra makes the most supple, fruity wines of Barolo and Renato Corino produces one of the best high quality "village" Barolos of the entire area. This 2012 is fabulous, as it's drinking well now, but has the tension, acidity and tannins to allow it to develop complexity over the years. I think it's the best village Barolo I've tried from them. It represents outstanding value. I first came across the wines of Corino in the mid 90s. They were made by Renato's father. They were a game-changing set of wines - more accessible, delicious and pure than most others. Now in the hands of the lovely Renato Corino, whose mentor was none other than the legend, their neighbour Elio Altare, the wines continue on an upward path. Now using large foudres to mature the wine I pick up hints of mahogany and a more savoury character that in previous vintages.
