Barolo is the wine of kings and king of wines, so it belongs to the restricted range of the oldest and noblest of Italian denominations. The Giacomo Fenocchio winery founded in 1864 is one of the most illustrious representatives of this type of wine and has always produced some of the most traditional Barolos in the appellation. Nowadays this splendid cellar is sensitively but resolutely run by Claudio Fenocchio, representing the fifth generation of vine dressers in the family.
All the wines come exclusively from the winery’s own vineyards located in some of the legendary Grand Cru of the Langhe hills in Piedmont, such as Bussia, Villero, Cannubi and Falletto.
The wines are produced without shortcuts, with natural fermentation, lengthy maceration on the skins and aging in large barrels (no barriques!). They are capable of aging for long periods nding the right complexity in the bottle. they have a forceful character, strong, structured, harmonious and aromatic.
