  • So what’s not to like? 2010 Barolo is in the hype machine right now and ... to some palates.  94pts Giacomo Fenocchio We all have much to learn. This was overwhelmingly reinforced by my first visit here to the cellars of Giacomo Fenocchio. While much of the tasting focused on wines in the cellar, and barrel tasting can always be a challenge, I... Read More

  • Giacomo Fenocchio Bussia Barolo 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Soil driven on the nose with hints of forest floor, tight rose bud and limestone followed by camphor and huge, sweet red fruits and strawberry leaves. The tannins here are quite fine grained tannins and support impressively rich strawberry fruit that shows a bit of jamminess and hints of blue flowers in the mouth. The tannins are big but very ri...

  • Giacomo Fenocchio Villero Barolo 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Beeswax, candle wax, menthol, and a little rubbery reduced note emerges slowly on the nose along with red fruits and hints of sage. This is round in the mouth with smaller scaled, supple tannins supporting flavors of strawberry and tar. Showing food length, again aided by the tannins, this turns a little spicy and warm on the finish.91pts Read More

  • Giacomo Fenocchio Barolo Cannubi 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Huge rose petals, sandlewood, poppy seeds, and soil tones show up on the spicy nose which has delicate notes of wild strawberry. Fairly rich and structured in the mouth with the limestone edginess of Cannubi on the palate, which is quite tannic and a bit tough though rich with cherry fruit. The finish is long, lengthened by the tannins here whic... Read More

  • Giacomo Fenocchio Barolo Bussia Atto Riserva 2010

    Snoothrank:

    From Botte Little smoke shows up on the tight nose which also shows hints of camphor. Finesse and elegance on entry with phenomenal depth and length. This has fabulous power and yet remains light footed. the tannins are imposing lending this a nice dusty feel but it is compact and reticent in the mouth. Shows great potential. 92-95 Read More

  • Giacomo Fenocchio Dolcetto d'Alba 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Tank sample Pretty if slightly gamy tinged berry fruit greets the nose which is surprisingly savory with gentle violet accents. On entry one finds a bright, high acid example of Dolcetto with surprisingly tough little tannins. Flavors of violets, and that gamy berry fruit of the nose gain a touch of mineral, and a little spice on the backend, al... Read More
