Giacomo Fenocchio's 2014 Barolos
The Giacomo Fenocchio estate, located in the heart of Barolo, has been producing wines of elegance and purity since 1864. With over 150 years of his family’s experience behind him, today proprietor and winemaker Claudio Fenocchio is producing wines that at once pay tribute the classicism of Barolo while simultaneously embracing the future.
Classically structured and certainly age-worthy, the wines also possess an elegant softness to them that makes them approachable and enjoyable earlier than some of their counterparts. Above all, these are delightfully expressive wines, created to celebrate the terroir and beauty of Barolo. The Barolo normale is the perfect introduction to the house style, graceful, fresh and wonderfully aromatic. The four crus, located in some of the most premier holdings in Barolo, offer an added complexity and depth, as well as a fascinating study in the differences in terroir.
With their vibrant fruit, beguiling perfume and exquisite purity, Fenocchio’s wines have been gaining a following over the past few years. In the 2014 vintage, the fruit is even more lively, the tannins more seamless, the bouquet more expressive. Simply put, Fenocchio’s 2014’s are well-crafted, stunning Barolos that will provide immeasurable pleasure for years to come – at prices that make them all the more enjoyable. We can’t recommend these wines highly enough and demand is always strong, so be sure to secure yours before it is too late.
