Giacomo Fenocchio Barolo is a wood-aged red wine made by Giacomo Fenocchio with the Nebbiolo variety in the DOCG Barolo, in Piedmont (Italy).
The Fenocchio family has been making wines in the heart of Barolo since 1864. Most of them in Monforte d'Alba. It was when Giacomo took over running the estate in 1947 that the Giacomo Fenocchio brand began to gain a reputation around the world. His successor, Claudio Fenocchio is following in the footsteps of his father and in the midst of the Barolo war, where many have chosen to modernise, he stands up for radical traditionalism, giving maximum prominence to the expression of the land.
Giacomo Fenocchio Barolo comes from twenty-year-old vines planted in the Monteforte d'Alba region. The vines lie on sloping hills and are planted in clay-calcareous soils. They are cultivated using environmentally friendly agriculture and the harvest is carried out manually when the grapes reach optimum ripeness.
In the winery, traditional winemaking techniques are used to make Giacomo Fenocchio Barolo. Firstly, it ferments in stainless steel tanks for up to 40 days and then ages for 6 months in stainless steel and a further 30 months in large Slavonian oak barrels. Finally, it is left to refine in the bottle.
The Giacomo Fenocchio Barolo wine is sensual with a vibrant floral aroma. A great Barolo with innate power.
