One of my favorite producers, Giovanni Corino, has started making a new cru barolo! Can you guess which cru? It is always exciting to see a winery evolve and grow! I got a sneak peak at a recent tasting, and let me tell you, the wine is really good!
Barolo Bricco Manescotto!
The vineyard, located near the Ceder Tree of Cordero di Montezemolo, gives the wine a mix of the characteristics Giachini and Arborina. Paolo Scavino, Revello and Cordero di Montezemolo also grow grapes in this vineyard, but so far the only to produce a cru is Giovanni Corino.
I tried the 2015 vintage of the Barolo Bricco Manescotto, and it honestly might be a new favorite! On the nose the wine is very similar to Arborina – floral, fruity, fresh. But in the mouth it resembles Giachini, with more aggressive tannins.
