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.

2010 Barolo Villero

Giacomo Fenocchio

In Stock

This product is only available from customer listings

Single bottle£245.36

Customer Listing
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 Bussia

Giacomo Fenocchio

In Stock

Case 6 x 75cl
Available In Bond

TASTING NOTES

Deep nose of cherry with hints of dark spice and just a touch of malt and a hint of mint. Succulent cherry fruit with a touch of gingerbread and gorgeous, finely ground tannins that go on and on without demanding all the attention. Elegant rather than powerful, but skilfully executed.17+/20, Walter Speller MW, Jancisrobinson.com

2017 Barolo Castellero

Giacomo Fenocchio

In Stock

Case 6 x 75cl
Available In Bond

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

2017 Barolo Villero

Giacomo Fenocchio

In Stock

Case 6 x 75cl
Available In Bond

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

2017 Barolo Cannubi

Giacomo Fenocchio

In Stock

Case 6 x 75cl
Available In Bond

TASTING NOTES

Subtle but concentrated cherry fruit nose with savoury, minerally top notes. With aeration, more lift, and perfumed cherry fruit, but still very shy. Completely closed on the palate but with a layer of long powdery tannins and sappy acidity. Very embryonic.16.5+/20, Walter Speller MW, Jancisrobinson.com
