With fruit from La Morra, the Renato Corino 2017 Barolo Arborina shows thick shadings of spice, toasted hazelnut and peppercorn over a dense core of black fruit. Those oak influences are a bit much, especially in a hot-vintage expression that shows a 15% alcohol content as this bottle does. You get fruit tannins compounded by oak tannins.
