GIACOMO FENOCCHIO

When Claudio Fenocchio succeeded his father Giacomo at the helm of the family business in 1989, the debate between modernist and traditionalists in Barolo was at its most acute. He decided to opt for a third approach, something we can call radical traditionalism. His wines were celebrated for being impressively approachable in youth while getting even better with age. Claudio represents the 5th generation of the Fenocchio family crafting elegant, true Barolos that capture the soul of his vineyards. Far from resting on his laurels though, he continues to push boundaries of quality and innovation while respecting his family legacy.

Customer Listing
TASTING NOTES

The Bussia is characteristically the most densely structured of the Crus, and for this reason is also the vineyard that produces the Barolo Riserva. The soil of the Bussia vineyard is compact clay and limestone which contributes to the firm structure. As with all of Claudio’s wines, this structure is matched by an elegance of flavour and delicate perfume. While...

2010 Barolo Cannubi

Single bottle£107.36

Customer Listing
TASTING NOTES

The sandy, lighter soil found in the Cannubi vineyard lends a more perfumed style to this Barolo. That being said it still has prodigious tannic backbone and the hallmarks of a wine that will develop for a decade or more. Lifted aromas of black cherry, violets and spice waft from the glass and on the palate its structure is framed...

2009 Barolo Cannubi

Giacomo Fenocchio

In Stock

This product is only available from customer listings

Single bottle£110.96

Customer Listing
TASTING NOTES

The nose on this Cannubi is welcomed by spicy aromas ripe fruit with hints of leather. On the palate, the strength and structure are mirrored in the deep, dark fruit: black cherries. An extraordinarily delicious yet serious Barolo which is rich enough to approach after 1-2 years but will reward ageing.

2015 Barolo Bussia

Giacomo Fenocchio

In Stock

Double Magnum 300cl£208.72

TASTING NOTES

The 2015 Barolo Bussia is a wine of power, density and gravitas, all of which come through in its decidedly vertical feel and rather somber expression. A whole range of balsamic-infused notes wrap around a core of dark fruit as this potent Barolo shows off its distinctive personality. 94 points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous

Double Magnum 300cl£210.76

TASTING NOTES

The 2015 Barolo Castellero offers terrific energy and verve to play off the riper elements of the year. Pine, menthol, licorice, spice, tobacco and dried herbs infuse the 2015 with real character. I especially admire the wine's vibrancy, something that is such a signature of wines from this vineyard in Monforte.92 points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous

TASTING NOTES

The 2010 Villero demonstrates remarkable approachability. Somewhat softer and riper than the other two Crus but still with the Barolo trademark structure of tannins and acidity, it is perhaps the concentration of sweet cherry fruit and floral notes here that gives it this accessibility. A classic Barolo all round with roses, tar and violets all featuring heavily on the palate....

Bottle 75cl£41.68

Case of 6 £250.08

TASTING NOTES

A tiny bit sbdued with the cranberry and cherry fruit just coming out. Just a hint of black pepper and rusty nail. Sappy cranberry and raspberry fruit on the palate and with just the right dose of coating tannins. […]. Juicy and lively finish with tannic bite and with an elegant palate weight.16.5/20, Walter Speller MW, Jancisrobinson.com
