Considered a Grand Cru of the commune of La Morra. It’s completely South facing and is typically the fullest and ripest tasting of Renato Corino’s wines. It’s usually delicious when young, but this is a bit more reticent and closed than in some years. I think that’s no bad thing and a reflection of using less new oak than normal. It will develop in complexity and richness over the years. It really does need another 4 or 5 years to open up, but it’s special and a great wine from Renato, from this excellent vintage.
A beautifully textured red, from one of the most renowned Barolo years, demonstrating more finely grained tannins. The palate is enveloped in dark aromatic fruits, from bramble to cassis and herbal notes such as lavendar and rosemary. With silky smoothmouthfeel and perfect balance, this is a wine that will age incredibly well.
