Ratings & Reviews

92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"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. An ample 10,000 bottles were made." - Monica Larner (23rd Jul 2020)

92 Points - James Suckling:
"A layered, fruity red with plum, cherry and strawberry character and hints of stone. Medium to full body. Racy finish. Drink or hold. Really good to drink now." - (27 Jun, 2020)

91 Points - Vinous:
"The 2016 Barolo del Comune di La Morra is a serious wine that shows just how compelling the vintage is, even among entry-level bottlings. Black cherry, plum, spice, leather and menthol bring out darker shades of Nebbiolo in this rich, textured La Morra Barolo. This is an especially fleshy, rich style, especially among entry-level bottlings. Plush fruit and silky, polished tannins add considerable appeal." - Antonio Galloni (Feb 2020)
