Case Corini, Achille, 2016
THE GRAPE: Barbera & Nebbiolo
THE PLACE: Piedmont, Italy
THE TASTE: Blackberries / Leather / Vanilla
THE WINEMAKER: Lorenzo Corino was a 5th generation winemaker and legend in the natural wine world. He sadly passed away at the end of 2021. His son and daughter have since taken over. The wines are subtle, yet incredibly complex. They are the pinnacle example of how natural wine can be just as big, bold, and age-worthy as conventional wine, while still focused on regenerative farming and minimal intervention. Lorenzo has been making natural wine since 1967 and his secret… go slowly with intention. It is not by chance that the slow food movement originated in his neighboring city of Bra.
