Corino Barolo Vigna Giachini 2008

External Review by Prestige Wine & Spirits:

The 2000 Barolo Giachini is close to or fully mature. Tobacco, earthiness, cedar, truffles and autumn leaves suggest the wine is best enjoyed sooner rather than later. Anticipated maturity: 2011–2014.

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.

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.

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.

A Piedmont modernist, Corino does not use any new oak for his generic Barolo, but approximately 40% new French barriques are utilized for his single vineyard offerings. 1997 marks the debut vintage for a limited production, old vine (40-65 year old Nebbiolo) cuvée from the Giachini vineyard. The Veccia Vigne comes from a tiny parcel that sits adjacent and to the east of the famed Rocche cru. Even in structured vintages Corino's wines possess a lushness as well as a Pomerol-like fatness and succulence. Readers can imagine just how flashy and appealing his 1997s have turned out.

The explosive 1997 Barolo, Giachini Veccia Vigne is similarly-styled, with additional levels of glycerin and flavor. The plum/garnet color is accompanied by an awesomely layered texture, great purity, abundant quantities of fruit, and complex aromatics as well as flavors. It should drink well over the next 14-15 years.

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.
