"The 2018 Barolo Roncaglie (Stefano Carino) is a dark, potent La Morra Barolo.  Black cherry, plum, chocolate, spice, menthol and licorice meld together effortlessly.  This is an especially seamless Barolo with soft contours that amplify the generally lighter style of Santa Maria in a good way.  Stefano Corino favors longer macerations at lower temperatures relative to the approach he and his father Rentao take with the other Barolos in the range." 

Winemaker Notes: 

"This Barolo wine is the succeeded attempt of Stefano, Renato's son, to combine the power of Barolo, the olfactory expressiveness of the Nebbiolo grape variety from Valtellina and the Burgundian experience in the use of barrel aging. Grapes from the Roncaglie Vineyard located in the Santa Maria hamlet in La Morra owned by the mother. Roncaglie soil is well known for providing elegance. This Barolo wine is vinified according to the father's style, revisited in some passages to obtain maximum roundness and pleasantness. Label designed by Stefano: essential, frank, minimal (aimed at reflecting wine and character). Forget the feud between modernists and traditionalists. It is time to focus on Nebbiolo!"
