The 2003 Barolo Arborina reveals an added dimension of complexity. It presents attractive flowers, spices, menthol, chocolate and red cherries with excellent length, expansiveness and inner sweetness. Despite its positive attributes, it comes across as somewhat tired and flat. ||Renato Corino is one of the most passionate producers I know. Always generous with his time and his wines, he embodies all of the qualities of La Morra’s finest artisanal growers. Corino’s new winery is perched atop the Arborina vineyard, just a stone’s throw from his neighbors Mauro Veglio and Elio Altare. These 2003 Barolos are the first Barolos Renato Corino has bottled under his own label. It is impossible to judge a producer from a single vintage, especially when it is as freakish as 2003, but as I note above, it will be interesting to see how the two Corino estates develop over the coming years. For now, these 2003 Barolos lack color, even for Nebbiolo, and don’t appear to be destined for long lives.||A Marc de Grazia Selection, various American importers, including Michael Skurnik, Syosset, NY; tel.
