Winemaker's Notes:

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.
My Notes:

About Renato Corino:

As of January 2006, The Corino family estate was divided into two separate properties: Giuliano retained the original homestead and cellars while Renato moved into the Arborina area, approximately 1 km from the original winery. Renato now exclusively produces the Barbera Vigna Pozzo and Barolo Vigneto Rocche, while his base Barolo is almost entirely fruit from the Roncaglie vineyard. Barolo Arborina, the regular Barolo, Barolo Vecchie Vigne, Dolcetto and Barbera are made by both Corino estates. His talent as a winemaker continues to be recognized by the international press, with Arborina 2004 receiving 94 points from Spectator and Rocche 2004 94 points from Parker.
