Corino 2016 Barolo "Giacchini"
Deep, herbal, smoky nose with aromas of ripe red cherries, violets and tar. The palate is layered with notes of black cherries, smoke, tobacco, liquorice, dried herbs and is intense, supple and forward.The finish is long and fragrant with notes of chocolate.
The 2016 Barolo Giachini cru from Giovanni Corino has a perfect equilibrium between elegance and power. The soil, rich in clay and limestone, (typical also of its neighboring cru, Arborina), helps to create a bouquet with intense aromas and finesse; it creates a wine that is unexpectedly open from a young age yet enriches with austerity and complexity with time. The slow maceration in barrique, 50% of which are new, helps integrate into the wines notes of redberries, violet, and creates a softness which is as persistent as it is pleasing. A beautiful modern barolo and an exceptional vintage to drink now or cellar for up to 20-25 years.
