After his father’s estate was divided, Renato established his own estate in the Arborina area in 2005. The vineyards stand in the prized La Morra crus of Rocche dell’Annunziata, Arborina and Pozzo. The cellar is extremely modern and equipped with vinification vats with temperature control and every year 30% of the barriques (exclusively medium toasted French oak) are replaced with new ones. The estate is now run by Renato together with his daughter Chiara and his son Stefano. Renato is a perfectionist in the vineyards: no chemical products are sprayed, only copper and sulphur is used, grass is left on the aisles between the rows of vines and then it is tilled into the soil in the winter, which means that no herbicides nor fertilizers are used either. He very carefully drops fruit at the end of July and shortly before the harvest so that the clusters that are picked are perfect. The result is certainly outstanding: the single vineyard Barbera Vigna Pozzo joins the half dozen world class wines produced by this varietal. A wine of stunning concentration, colour and length, it displays a phenomenal complexity of flavours and aromas. Barolo Rocche dell’Annunziata is a wine whose magical elegance and finesse are unrivalled in the whole appellation and brand the cru as the “Musigny” of Barolo.? Arborina will no doubt remain the classic it has always been. An archetypal La Morra expression in its generous flesh, it distinguishes itself from all other surrounding crus by a touch of austerity, that tannic grip in the finish which is the trademark of this cru. Renato also makes a Barolo Riserva, mainly from the older vines of the Rocche vineyard, a Barolo “base”, a Dolcetto and a Nebbiolo d’Alba.
