    The stupendous 2012 Fenocchio is classic Bussia in everyway. The color is a rustic bloody red. A wild nose of dense dark tar, sweet dried roses & herbs, earthy red fruit. Dense but with great structure and length. No stinky new oak, no sweet over ripe fruit. It's a baby and needs sometime, but a fabulous under valued old school Barolo for the long haul.

    Recently I've had a number of customers ask me to select what I consider to be a classic style Barolo that can be opened now or aged for a few years. I immediately pointed to this one. Fenocchio has been making outstanding wines of late and this one is especially noteworthy and worth seeking out. Nebbiolo fans will especially appreciate the classic aromas of deep purple fruit, tar, roses and minerals and a seamless palate with full, ripe tannins. We love this one.

    Black tea on the nose, with lifted fruit and hints of tar and licorice, this Giacomo Fenocchio Barolo is classic and complex, sourced from perhaps the best part of the renowned Bussia vineyard, and treated to extended maceration – nearly 40 days on the skin! The earthy 2012 will benefit dramatically from more time and air but is still drinking beautifully now.
