Fenocchio Barolo DOCG Cannubi
Azienda Agricola Giacomo Fenocchio
Italy - Piemonte - Barolo DOCG

Fenocchio's 1/2 hectare Cannubi vineyard was purchased by the family in the late 1800's & is considered to be among the finest. The vineyard is on a low-lying hill, planted on Tortonian soil (blue marl and sandstone mixed with sand), which gives perfume and velvet to the wine.

Intense, rich and inviting aromas of ripe raspberries, roses, violets and warm spice notes.
Complex, harmonious and concentrated. Well balanced between noble tannins and ripe lush fruit. It is full bodied and mouth-filling with a finish that is long and lingering. It is a wine noted for its longevity.

james suckling hq logo plain"A whole, beautiful wine with ultra-fine tannins that spread across the palate. It’s full-bodied with refined tension and a long, polished finish. Subtle complexity of berries, cedar, walnuts and dried flowers. Try after 2024."

jeb dunnuck logo 250"The 2017 Barolo Cannubi, aged for 30 months in 20- to 25-hectoliter Slavonian oak, is from a small, 0.5-hectare parcel of Cannubi. It reveals perfumed notes of pure cherry, anise, violets, and leather. The palate is tightly wound and resinous with pine, bitter herbs, and orange pith, with angular structure. Allow 3-5 years and drink 2024-2046. - Audrey Frick"

vinous logo"The 2017 Barolo Cannubi is a very pretty, ethereal Barolo. Crushed flowers, sweet dried red berries, mint, chalk and white pepper are all nicely lifted. This is a decidedly light style, even for Cannubi. - Antonio Galloni"
