Giovanni Corino, Barolo, Vigna Giachini

2007

Tasting Notes


Maturity:
Drink

ABV:
14 %

Notes

Floral red fruit and roses, bright and uplifting characteristics that are echoed on the palate. Gripping, long, and whilst there is clear structure here the tannins are creamy and beautifully integrated, vivacious fruit flavours of strawberry, cherry and cranberry. The Giachini is a fine parcel of La Morra vines situated in the lower part of the Rocche dell’Annunziata vineyard, and is aged in 50% new oak.

Notes
Good bright, deep red with ruby highlights. Lively aromas of black cherry, menthol, minerals and violet. Sweet, supple and seamless, with lovely inner-mouth freshness and lift for the vintage. Juicy blackberry, redcurrant and mineral flavors carry through to the lively, very persistent finish. I prefer the balance here to that of the 2008. When brothers Renato and Giuliano divided up the Corino estate in 2006, Giuliano retained the Giachini holding.

Giovanni Corino

Giovanni Corino

The Corino brothers are the rising stars of Piedmont. Their wines are beautiful examples of La Morra Barolos. Perfumed, subtle and elegant with the balancing acidity and fine tannin that make them so complete. Giuliano emphasises: “Barolo doesn’t have to just be about power.’’ A tasting of some beautifully refined and fresh 1991s, over a decade on, would seem to full justify this statement. As of the 2004 vintage the estate has been split in two, Giuliano will produce wines from Arborina, Giachini and will continue to make a Vecchie Vigne. Renato, who has set up his own estate, will produce Rocche, Arborina and some Vecchie Vigne. The Giovanni Corino wines continue to remain in a beautiful floral, red fruited, elegant style.
