Winemaker 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.

James Suckling

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.

RP 92
The Wine Advocate

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.

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.

Highly regarded for distinctive and age-worthy red wines, Rioja is Spain’s most celebrated wine region and also home to whites of equivalent quality but lesser renown. Made up of three different sub-regions of varying elevation—Rioja Alta, Rioja Alavesa, and Rioja Baja—wines are typically a blend of fruit from all three, although single-zone wines are beginning to gain in popularity. Rioja Alta, at the highest elevation, is considered to be the source of the brightest, most elegant fruit, while grapes from the warmer and drier Rioja Baja produce wines with deep color and high alcohol which mainly serve to add body to a blend. While fresh and fruity Riojas labeled “Joven” undergo minimal aging before release, a hallmark of more serious Rioja wines is the aroma and flavor of new oak—traditionally American, which imparts characteristics of dill, coconut, vanilla, and spice to the wine. Tighter-grained, subtler French oak, however, is becoming increasingly common. Crianza and Reserva styles are aged at least one year in oak, and Gran Reserva at least two, but in practice this maturation period is often quite a bit longer—up to about fifteen years.

Tempranillo provides the backbone of Rioja red wines, providing complex notes of red and black fruit, leather, and tobacco, while Garnacha supplies body and alcohol. In smaller percentages, Graciano and Mazuelo often serve as “seasoning” with additional flavors and aromas. These same varieties are responsible for flavorful dry rosés. White wines are made mostly from crisp, fresh Viura, which is usually blended with aromatic Malvasia and weighty Garnacha Blanca. White Rioja has traditionally been made in a nutty, oxidative style, though a bright, unoaked version is currently in vogue.

Tempranillo

View all wine

Notoriously food-friendly with soft tannins, modest alcohol, and bright acidity, Tempranillo is the star of Spain’s Rioja and Ribera del Duero regions. It is important throughout Spain as well as in Portugal, where it is known as Tinta Roriz and is an important component of Port wines and the table wines of the Douro region that Port calls home. California, Washington, and Oregon have all had moderate success with Tempranillo, producing a riper, more fruit-forward style of wine.

In the Glass

Tempranillo is often aged in new oak for the integration of spicy, woodsy, and herbal flavors, often with hints of vanilla, coconut, and dill. The grape itself produces medium-weight reds with bright red and black fruit aromas and hints of spice, leather, and tobacco, with no shortage of flavor.

Perfect Pairings

Tempranillo’s modest, fine-grained tannins and bright acidity make it extremely food friendly, pairing with a wide variety of Spanish-inspired dishes—especially grilled lamb chops, a rich chorizo and bean stew, or paella.

Sommelier Secret

The Spanish take their oak aging requirements very seriously, especially in Rioja. There, a system is in place to indicate on the label how much time the wine has spent in both barrel and bottle before release, which is helpful to the consumer trying to determine the style of an unfamiliar wine. Rioja can range from Joven (fresh, fruity, and unoaked) to Gran Reserva (complex and oxidized from extended barrel aging), with Crianza and Reserva in between.
