The 2000 Barolo Giachini, from the firm's home vineyard, is the best of the single-vineyard bottlings, sweeter and fuller in aroma, larger-framed and more supple in flavor, sizable but elegant on its lengthy finish.

Good red-ruby. Sweet raspberry, mocha, tobacco and minerals on the very ripe nose. Fatter, richer and more pliant than the Arborina, but with no loss of inner-mouth perfume. Rich, sweet, broad and open-knit, and somehow light on its feet. Finishes with big, lush, toothcoating tannins.

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.

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 Vigna Giachini, a saturated ruby, is somewhat balsamic on the nose, with notes of spices, stewed prunes and tobacco. Endowed with generous amounts of dark sweet fruit, menthol, cocoa and toasted oak flavors, it is round and soft in texture, but with serious structure underneath. It is just a shade less complete than the Rocche in 2001. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2019.

Very warm, almost exotic wine with leather, plum and light prune character. Full-bodied, with soft and caressing tannins and a long, ripe fruit and vanilla aftertaste. Should come together nicely. Needs some time. Best after 2007.

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.

The 2000 Barolo Giachini, from the firmandrsquo;s home vineyard, is the best of the single-vineyard bottlings, sweeter and fuller in aroma, larger-framed and more supple in flavor, sizable but elegant on its lengthy finish.
