Outstanding new vintage 2019 Barolo from a classic producer. Giacomo Fenocchio has a reputation for producing classic traditional Barolo with traditional long maceration times, of up to 40 days on skins with natural indigenous yeasts. 

The result is a group of stellar Barolos that can age for between 10 to 20 years in good cellaring conditions and which offer exceptional value for money. The style is savoury all the way from the clean, fresh, earthy note to the rich mushroom, truffle, tar and roses notes that typifies great Barolo. This wine punches above its weight for its price and will age gracefully.

Giacomo Fenocchio's winemaking philosophy

Giacomo Fenocchio is regarded as one of the best Barolo producers today. Here's a piece that sums up why he is so highly respected and what makes his wines an authentic expression of Piemonte as a wine region.

"Claudio Fenocchio took over from his father Giacomo in 1989 ? probably the moment of greatest pressure to follow the ?modern? winemaking path of short fermentations and aging in new barriques. In fact, it?s difficult now to understand how much pressure was exerted ? from peers and neighbors, old and young, from the press, importers, customers, and that mysterious thing called ?the market?. It took a strong will to resist, and a strong devotion to tradition. Lucky for us that Claudio stuck with the best of tradition ? organic farming, long fermentations, and aging in large Slavonian oak casks. Easy for us too, since we get to drink his wines. Here?s a rare group of Fenocchio bottles spanning the generations, and ending with the beautiful 2016s."
