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.
