Barolo Arborina Renato Corino 2016 WineSpectator 97 Top Prijs/Kwaliteit


“The Renato Corino 2016 Barolo Arborina shows ripeness and succulence with dark fruit, bold cherry, raspberry and wild rose. The tannins are tame, as is characteristic of fruit from La Morra, but the aromatic complexity of the wine keeps you guessing with each swirl of the glass. This is a delicate Barolo for sure, but its subdued personality is perfect for a simple plate of agnolotti stuffed with minced meat. The wine is aged in barrique, with one-third new oak.” – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

“The 2016 Barolo Arborina is powerful and tightly wound, with explosive energy that is just waiting to fully emerge. Readers will find an especially rich, potent expression of this Arborina site. Black cherry, violet, lavender and spice add to a real sense of gravitas. The 2016 needs time in bottle to be at its best, but it has terrific freshness and persistence. The significant presence of clay in this portion of Arborina contributes to the wine’s size. This is such a gorgeous wine.” – Vinous
