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

Fenocchio's Barolo comes from a blend of Bussia in Monforte d'Alba and Castellero in Barolo. The soil in Bussia is Helvetian (limestone and clayey blue marl), which contributes to the fullness and excellent aging potential of these wines. The Castellaro vineyard is of Tortonian soil (blue marl and sandstone mixed with sand), which gives a velvety mouth feel and exceptional aromatics. The vines are an average of 35 years old.

Ruby red color with garnet reflections. Rich bouquet with hints of blueberries, roses and liquorice. Densely structured with a full, complex flavor. It is an elegant wine with firm tannins and good acidity that will become velvety and graceful with age. Generous and bold with a long, lingering finish.

wine enthusiast 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"
