After 20 years together, Renato Corino and his brother Giuliano decided to split their family's renowned Barolo estate in 2005, allowing each to forge their own path under different labels. Renato's 8-hectare vineyards stand in the prized La Morra crus of Rocche dell’Annunziata, Arborina, Pozzo, Conca and Roncaglie, mostly Nebbiolo along with Barbera and Dolcetto. Renato built a brand new, state-of-the-art winery to steer production in the same perfectionist fashion that he runs his vineyards. Renato’s son Stefano is also now working alongside his father, helping to craft these unique wines.
This red delivers a nice beam of cherry flavor midpalate, along with floral and spice notes. Tense, unwinding slowly to a lingering aftertaste of berry, mineral and spice. Best from 2021 through 2038. Rating: 93 Points; Bruce Sanderson; Wine Spectator
Renato Corino’s 2015 Barolo del Comune di La Morra is fleshy, radiant Barolo to drink now and over the next 10-15 years. Succulent dark cherry, plum, violet, spice and mocha all open up. Creamy and flat-out delicious, the straight Barolo is this lineup is an overachiever. I loved it. Rating: 91 Points; Antonio Galloni; Vinous
Aromas of berries, strawberries and rose soap. Full-bodied, very tight and tannic with a focused palate of fruit and bright acidity. Solid. Try in 2023. Rating: 93 Points; James Suckling
Medium to light ruby colour with tints of brick-red. The bouquet is earthy, autumnal, sousbois - scented with dried herbs and a hint of Chinotto. Oak is apparent when it's first poured, but this recedes the longer it's in the glass. A typical Piedmontese nebb in that it is very dry and low on fruit, but the tannins are balanced and ripe and without hardness. Good intensity and persistence. Date Tasted: Sept 2019; Drink: 2019 to 2030; Rating: 92 Points; Huon Hooke
