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. Enjoyable over the next few years after decanting and with food but also able to develop for a decade or two, much in line with the Cannubi.

Reviews & Scores

Riper and fruitier than their Cannubi. Still has the signature floral fragrance, but there is even more on the palate ? perfume, chocolate, violets, and tar ? the whole nine yards of Barolo. Fantastic. Score: 19/20 Richard Hemming (JancisRobinson.com)

TASTING NOTES

A soft and aromatic nose, this wine invites you in with camomile, fresh peaches, and citrus. Refreshing and tangy on the palate.

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, Giacomo Fenocchio

Bottle 75cl £38.48

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
