Le Bollicine Secondo Rocche dei Manzoni
In 1952 Celeste Corino moved with wife and children to La Morra to work as a sharecropper in the farms of the area growing grapes and fruit trees.
Celeste's son Giovanni, who would later become the father of the current company owner Giuliano, grew up following in his father's footsteps and eventually founded the Corino Azienda Agricola, focusing his attention on the vineyards.
Initially, most of the grapes produced were meant for sale only.
In the mid 1980s, when a still very young Giuliano started to work in the family company, the first hectolitres of Barolo were bottled.
In 1987 the company took an innovative road in the wine-making process. While still keeping the territorial imprint with the first green harvest in order to achieve superior quality, they experimented/innovated with shorter, temperature-controlled fermentations and ageing in small barrels of French oak.
Today the company has 9 hectares of vineyards in the area of La Morra, with an annual production of about 50,000 bottles.
