Giacomo Fenocchio

Barolo DOCG Bussia Riserva 2016

Vinified with traditional method: natural fermentation without added yeasts in stainless steel tanks. Ancient technique of splinting or submerging the cap until 90 days. This process allows for an elegant transfer of the wine as it retains some of the noble elements found in the skins.
Aged 6 months in stainless steel tanks, four years in large capacity Slavonian oak casks (35-50 hl) and a successive refinement in the bottle. The color is a deep garnet red with orange reflections. Intense scents typical of Nebbiolo grape, rose, truffles, leather. The palate shows hints of black cherry, truffles, spices and notes of aromatic herbs. Texture subtle and velvety tannins with a remarkable depth and complexity. Persistence is pleasantly long. Only 4,000 bottles produced (released only in the best vintages).
“New leather, camphor, dried aromatic herbs and pipe tobacco are some of the aromas you’ll find on this textbook Barolo. The full-bodied palate demonstrates elegance, tension and depth, delivering juicy Marasca cherry, crushed raspberry, star anise and nutmeg set against a backbone of vibrant acidity and noble tannins”
