Gorgeous aromas of crushed berries and dried flowers follow through to a full-bodied palate, with masses of fruit and big velvety tannins. This is better than 2000. Best after 2008.
Bright red-ruby. Aromatically expressive nose combines cherry, blood orange and mint; atypically open for this bottling. Then vinous and classy on the palate, with sappy red fruit flavors lifted by mint and flowers. Juicy, shapely and very intense. Finishes with firm but sweet tannins and terrific persistence.
Corino is one of the increasing number of Piedmontese producers utilizing rotary fermenters. With respect to wood cooperage, approximately 40% new oak casks are employed for the single vineyards wines. His offerings tend to be velvety and forward, even in the classic vintages. Corino's 1995 single vineyard offerings are complex, aromatic, developed, and forward wines. The medium ruby-colored 1995 Barolo Giachini exhibits a knock-out nose of sweet, cinnamon, allspice, coffee, black fruits, and toast. An expansive, ripe, medium to full-bodied, seductive effort, it is not huge, but complex and disarming. Comsume it over the next 5-6 years.
Loads of blackberry, cedar and tobacco on the nose here. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long, caressing finish. Serious wine here. Best after 2008.
Bright full red. Plum, mocha and nutty oak on the nose, with a hint of herbs; a bit stunted after the Arborina and Giachini. Then almost shockingly broad, sweet and pliant in the mouth; comes across as quite youthful despite its near-syrupy sweetness of fruit. Finishes with big, sweet tannins and lingering suggestions of plum and nuts.
Intense aromas of blackberries, cedar and flowers follow through to a full-bodied palate, with chewy yet round tannins and an excellent concentration of fruit. Very chocolaty aftertaste. Best after 2008.
Brothers Renato and Giuliano Corino have decided to divide their vineyards and work separately and these 2001s are the last set of Barolos to be marketed before the split. The winemaking style here is modern, with fermentations lasting under a week and aging taking place in barriques of which 40% are new for the single vineyard wines... The 2001 Barolo Arborina, from a vineyard made famous by the Corinos' neighbor and mentor Elio Altare, is another worthy effort. A deeply colored ruby, it presents an aromatic nose of menthol, spices and minerals. This richly structured Barolo is dense and long, with generous flavors of sweet dark red fruit, toasted oak, chocolate and the harder tannins that are typical of the Arborina vineyard. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2019.
