The grapes for this Renato Corino 2018 Barolo del Comune di La Morra DOCG come exclusively from Nebbiolo vines from a family vineyard in La Morra . The grapes are hand-picked in October and the carefully selected grapes are processed immediately. The first step after destemming is the fermentation of the mash, which takes place in a temperature-controlled stainless steel fermentation tank.
After about a week, the wine is transferred to a wooden barrel for malolactic fermentation. When this is done, the wine is aged in wooden barrels of different ages. This process lasts 24 months and at the end of the maturation process in the wine cellar the Barolo is stored in the bottle for a short time.
This Barolo red wine has a fruity nose with ripe raspberries and tobacco notes. On the palate it is dense, concentrated and full-bodied, but its elegance dominates everything. A straightforward, complex Barolo with potential for further development.
Drinking recommendation: 2022-2030
Very good accompaniment to pork, veal, roasts, risotto and aged cheeses.
