Renato Corino Nebbiolo Barolo 2008
"A beautiful wine laced with dark red cherries, flowers, spices and mint. The cool, vibrant personality of the year is nicely balanced by the fleshiness of the fruit in this entry-level Barolo. This is a truly beautiful wine. Corino made the Barolo from three parcels in La Morra, plus a parcel in Serralunga (in Baudana) and aged the wine in French oak barrels, 50% new. The 2008 is a huge overachiever within its peer group. It is easily one of the best Baroli readers will find for the money. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2020...92" WA 4/12 "Iron, graphite and eucalyptus notes shade the core of cherry in this pure, bracing red. Vibrant and fresh, with a resonant finish. Fine length. Best from 2016 through 2030...92" WS 12/12
cinnamon and cedar combo, dried cherry and tea leaves, fairly tannic immediately with dried yet powerful fruit
Earthy nose with mushroom flavors apparent. Eucalyptus and iodine mingle with the sweeter leather and cedar flavors. Finishes on a cigar flavor with iron filing notes.
