"A bright and fresh red with dried-strawberry and floral aromas, following through to a medium to full body. Firm and silky tannins and a crisp finish. Drink now." - James Suckling (September 2018), 91 pts
"Red berry, crushed mint, new leather and underbrush aromas are front and center. Savory and juicy, the taut vibrant palate doles out succulent raspberry, tart red cherry and star anise alongside youthfully tense, polished tannins. Drink 2020–2026.- KERIN O’KEEFE" - Wine Enthusiast (November 2018), 91 pts
"The 2017 Barolo has an expressive bouquet of dried cherry, violets, cinnamon, and crushed earth. On opening, its somewhat volatile notes up front do blow off and would benefit from decanting. Ripe and inviting, the palate is rich with red plum, black tea, and incense. A great entry Barolo from Giacomo Fenocchio that speaks to the high-quality potential of the vintage, it is approachable now or hold 3-5 years. Drink 2021-2036. - Audrey Frick"
"The 2017 Barolo is incredibly impressive. Rich, ample and wonderfully seductive, the 2017 hits all the right notes. Succulent dark cherry, plum, licorice, spice and menthol flesh out as this super-expressive, inviting Barolo shows off its considerable charms. Fenocchio’s straight Barolo stands out in its peer group in 2017. Readers looking for an affordable Barolo to drink over the next 10-15 years won’t want to miss it. - Antonio Galloni"

"Sweet strawberry aromas with dried flowers and orange zest. Full-bodied with a round, chewy palate and lots of fruit. Some smoke, grilled meat and spice, such as nutmeg. A little tight at the end. Needs time to open. Try after 2023."
