Giacomo Fenocchio image

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.

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....

2017 Barolo Villero

Giacomo Fenocchio

In Stock

Bottle 75cl£44.68

TASTING NOTES

Reluctant nose with hints of raspberry fruit and savoury, malty spicy notes. With aeration increasingly perfumed. Elegant and almost vibrant fruit palate followed by bags of powdery tannins, but the fruit prevails. Same elegance and lightness of touch as the Castellero, but with a bigger tannic load and more depth.17/20, Walter Speller MW, Jancisrobinson.com

2013 Barolo Riserva Bussia 90 dì

Giacomo Fenocchio

In Stock

Double Magnum 300cl£364.12

TASTING NOTES

Fenocchio's smallest production wine, a Bussia Riserva that spends 90 days macerating on the skins. Long maceration is key to Claudio's winemaking style, and it reaches its peak here with immensely complex aromas of truffles, black cherry, rosewater, and aromatic herbs. A subtle, velvety wine with remarkable depth.
