Like many producers in La Morra, the Corino family started off as mezzadri, when Celeste Corino moved to La Morra in the early 1950s. His son Giovanni continued in the same vein and focused on viticulture, acquiring most of the vineyards that comprise the present-day property. Grandson Giuliano, the present owner, started working on the family estate in the mid-1980s. Giovanni had primarily been selling grapes, but Giuliano was determined to start making and bottling his own wine. The wines they make are wonderful expressions of the prime sites planted just below La Morra, where the estate’s nine hectares are cultivated.
