Tasting Notes

This is benchmark village Barolo and sets the standard for the rest of Fenocchio?s range. Beautiful lifted aromas of cherry, strawberry and roses swirl up from the glass complimented by an earthy background with hints of sweet spice. The palate is finely poised with great balance between weight and structure. Perfumed cherry and strawberry flavours dominate backed by an earthy minerality and a pleasantly grippy structure. The concentration of flavour here is quite something, all finished off by a lovely bitter cherry finish. As with all of Fenocchio?s wines this is approachable and beguiling now but has the ability to age for the next 5-7 years.

Reviews & Scores

Monforte d?Alba. Bursting with fragrance ? evocative and emotive, almost! Confidently high tannin, and light body. The scent is the most remarkable aspect though ? really stellar.
Score: 17.5/20

TASTING NOTES

“A darker, more structured Barolo than his sibling, Prapo’ is an incredibly pure expression of the terroir of Serralunga. Precise notes of red and black berries, forest floor and dark spices are framed by tight woven tannins and lively freshness. An exciting release that has the potential to be enjoyed for the next 10 years.” Armit Wines

TASTING NOTES

“Taut, elegant, ethereal expression of Nebbiolo. A purebred Barolo that entices with notes of red fruits, meadow flowers and just hints of Italian leather and spices. Already approachable, Cerretta will be a sure joy to revisit in five to ten years.” Armit Wines
