Intense garnet red. On the nose, it is fresh, clean, ripe fruit, spicy, toasty. Flavors are intense, warm, full-bodied, soft, fresh and tannic, with medium persistence.
"Soft and velvety red, with plums, cedar and vanilla character. Full and round textured with a long finish. Lots going on. Give this some bottle age to come together better."
"Proprietor Renato Corino has crafted one of the most accessible wines of the vintage in his 2007 Barolo Arborina. Rich and seamless, the Arborina offers up gorgeous varietal fruit with tons of persistence and a long, harmonious finish. In 2007 the slightly hard tannins of this site are beautifully balanced by the sheer depth of the fruit. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2027."
The Wine Advocate
"Good full medium red. Very ripe aromas of dried fruits, menthol and nuts. Fat, sweet and deep, with chewy, ripe red fruit flavors and solid underlying structure. Finishes with smooth, building tannins. Riper than the 2008 version but I'd still like to have seen more lift and verve."
