Giovanni Corino Barolo


Giovanni Corino Barolo

Giovanni Corino BaroloAnother producer of the Annunziata sub-zone in La Morra making modernstyled, fruit-rich Barolo. Giuliano Corino recently split the estate with his brother Renato (see below) retaining 7 ha but the wines under this label have a fine track record – highlighting the quality inherent in Giachini, a small 3.5 ha cru, immediately east of Rocche dell’Annunziata. As well as several other Barolo crus made in small quantities, Vecchie Vigne is a superior selection made since 1997 and is deep and powerful with great cellaring potential. Regular Barolo can age impressively too and shouldn’t be ignored. Dolcetto is a pure, classic example – brilliant with 3-4 years’ age from a top vintage. Insieme is pretty good here too (see ALTARE), this one mostly Nebbiolo and Barbera with a little Cabernet and Merlot.
