2016 Renato Corino Barolo Comune del La Morra
The commune of La Morra is home to some of the finest Barolo around. Its curvy roads and mesas overlooking the Langhe hills are some of the most beautiful terroir in all of Italy. This expression from Renato Corino is serious and compelling with black cherry, plum, leather and menthol, this is a dark and fleshy style from a remarkable vintage.

I love these wines that source fruit from a single comune, or village, in the Barolo appellation. The entry-level Renato Corino 2016 Barolo del Comune di La Morra showcases silky tannins, loose textural fiber and pretty berry accents. Once you break it all down, this wine delivers on a promise of varietal purity and accessibility. Raspberry and wild cherry is followed by dried mint and basil.
