Wine SpectatorLoaded with black currant, blackberry and violet aromas and flavors, this stylish red is integrated and intense. This also shows some power and persistence on the lingering, spicy aftertaste. Best from 2012 through 2027. 275 cases made.

Wine AdvocateThe 2006 Barolo Arborina offers up wild cherries galore, followed by sweet floral, spices aromas and flavors that add complexity. The wine reveals plenty of length although the intensity and plumpness of the fruit trails off just a touch as the finish becomes a bit slender. This looks to be the most forward of Corino's 2006 Barolos. Giuliano Corino's holdings in Arborina are in the southeast portion of that vineyard, and in 2006 he was spared the hail damage that affected his neighbors. Anticipated maturity. 2014-2024.

Antonio Galloni, February 2010
