Giacomo Fenocchio was founded in 1864. They continue to make Barolo in the traditional way from some of the best plots and in very limited quantities.
"Such beautiful aromas with sweet-berry and floral character. Some cedar and sandalwood, too. Full-bodied with firm, round tannins. Lots of tar and asphalt to the pretty fruit. Very elegant at the end. Extremely attractive now, but will age beautifully. Such finesse and complexity. Try after 2023." 97 points - James Sucklng (3 Jun, 2021)
"Giacomo Fenocchio is a truly authentic vintner of the Bussia vineyard. Although the Villero MGA has a southwesterly exposure, his plot is mostly south-facing. This vintage is restrained and elegant. Liquorice root, smoky woodland, wild strawberry: an extremely classic nose, with some rhubarb minerality. The attack is velvety, full of fruit concentration yet stern, even if without dryness or bitterness. Dusty on the finish, the acidity carries the long cherry kernel notes. A classic Barolo built to age." 95 points - Decanter
