"Cellar Selection. Rose, iris, wild berry and baking spice aromas merge with scents of new leather and a balsamic menthol note on this stunning and classically crafted Barolo. The structured polished palate delivers juicy Marasca cherry, crushed raspberry, pipe tobacco and licorice framed in tightly knit noble tannins and bright acidity. It's going to just keep getting better and better over the next few decades. Drink from 2023 through 2053."
"Five generations of Fenocchios have been producing wine from their holdings in the heart of the Bussia in Monforte dâAlba since 1894. Most of the production was sold locally up until 1964, when the ambitious and energetic Giacomo Fenocchio took over for the estate. His goal was to make the finest wines in all of Barolo, so he purchased prime parcels in some of the best crus in the Langhe â including Villero in Castiglione Falletto and Cannubi.
Today, Giacomoâs son Claudio has taken over winemaking duties for the estate, continuing his fatherâs tradition of making pristine wines from the greatest vineyards in Barolo. Use whichever word you want, minimalist, traditionalist, non-interventionist, â all that matter is that Claudioâs wines exhibit a level of terroir clarity that is only found in the top echelon of producers. If youâre looking for the next star winemaker in Italy, look no further. Just recently, The New York Times rated Fenocchio number 2 in a tasting of Barolos â coming behind only Elio Altare and ahead of Elio Grasso, Massolino, and Vietti. Claudio manages some 7 hecatres of vineyards in Barolo, Castiglione Falletto and of course, the Bussia of Monforte. Total average annual production is about 3,000 cases.
With prices that frankly do not come close to approximating the astronomical quality of the wines, itâs painfully obvious that Fenocchio should be on the radar of Barolo lovers everywhere." -Importer
