Renato left the Giovanni Corino estate in the capable hands of his brother, Giuliano, in 2003. Having kept some vines from the original Corino estate and eventually having finished work on his own cellars in Annunziata la Morra, Renato is now in a position to release his own wines. His return sees with it the homecoming of the wonderful old vines Barbera Pozzo, planted in 1953, and also the legendary Barolo Vigna Rocche vineyard. Renato also kept some Arborina vines and will, in certain years, make Vecchie Vigne as well as Dolcetto and Barbera, whilst Giuliano has kept all of the Giachini. Renato made the 2004 vintage with the help of his brother, whilst the 2005s will be the first vintage made completely by his own enormous hands. Whilst his style is true to the purity of classic La Morra-style Barolos and is not dissimilar to that of his brother, the wines also display a unique and distinctive wild, opulent character. In the modern Barolo mould, the wines are lightly extracted and aged in french oak barriques. The result is great wine of perfume and intensity.
