Winery: Giacomo Fenocchio

The Giacomo Fenocchio Estate
The Fenocchio estate was founded in 1864. For over five generations, with its twelve hectares (thirty acres) of vineyards in the heart of the Barolo production zone, it produces and ages important wines, following in the footsteps of traditions handed down from father to son. In the post-war period, new energy was given to the estate’s work by Giacomo Fenocchio, who began to acquire new vineyard land.

Before the Second World War, the wine was sold principally in local markets: either in bulk or in demijohns, Larger ambitions began only in the early 1960’s, with an eye to foreign markets as well.

Today the sons of Giacomo Fenocchio – Claudio, Albino, and Alberto – export close to eighty per cent of their production, thereby creating a name and reputation for the family and a territory as well as for their wines.
 

The Giacomo Fenocchio Vineyard
All of the Fenocchio wines are made from the grapes of the estate’s proprietary vineyards located in three different townships: the Bussia in Monforte d’Alba; Villero sub-zone of Castiglione Falletto; and Cannubi in Barolo. All are “grand cru” vineyards and have always been recognized as such for the special microclimates which give them the potential to produce wines of exceptional character and personality and an aristocratic structure. The different characteristics of the soil and, in particular, of the sub-soils of these three subzones give wines which are notably different from one another. The microclimates and the excellent exposures (southeast and southwest) create highly favorable conditions for the ripening of the grapes and create as well special bio-chemical characteristics which produce the outstanding aromas and flavors of the wines made from these grapes.

BUSSIA IN MONFORTE D’ALBA
The soils are of Helvetian origin: compact clay and limestone marls along with tuff in Bussia di Monforte.

CASTIGLIONE FALLETTO – THE VILLERO VINEYARD
Approximately twelve kilometers (seven miles) from Alba, the town of Castiglione Falletto dominates the hillside ridge which runs through the central part of the Barolo appellation. Soils are of Helvetian origin with clay and limestone deposits rich in iron.

THE CANNUBI SUB-ZONE OF BAROLO
Historically eminent among the vineyards and sub-zones with the highest potential for fine Barolo: the oldest bottle of the Langhe district is conserved in the city of Bra and bears the inscription “Cannubi 1752”: the Cannubi name has always been a seal of honor and a true, universally recognized guarantee. Soils are of Tortonian origin, marls and tuff together with a significant presence of sand in the Cannubi vineyard in the township of Barolo, which maintains a soft and dry texture in the soil.

Gaja Sito Moresco Rosso Langhe 2019

Gaja Sito Moresco Rosso Langhe is made from 35% Nebbiolo, 25% Merlot, 25% Barbera, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon

Sito Moresco is named for the family who farmed this 25-acre estate in Barbaresco before its purchase by the Gaja family, a nod to the people and traditions that preceded it. It means literally the Moresco site, after the family name of Giovannini Moresco. GAJA created this red blend to deliver greater approachability in its youth. Sito Moresco is made from vineyards located in the villages of Treiso and Barbaresco (in the Barbaresco appellation) and fruit from Serralunga d’Alba (in the Barolo appellation). Pheasants are featured on Sito Moresco's label to commemorate the beautiful birds that inhabit the forests adjacent to GAJA's vineyards. Concentration of fruit, structure and acidity are the highlights of the vintage.

MAKER'S NOTES
The three varieties ferment and macerate separately for three weeks. After the malolactic fermentation, the varieties are blended and then aged in oak for 12 months.


TASTING
The wine gets volume in the palate with remarkable fruit concentration sustained by silky, ripe tannins.


AROMA
Dried sweet flowers, chestnut honey on the nose. Notes of pomegranate and blueberry along with fresh savory aromas lead to a lingering finish with good minerality.



Damilano Marghe Nebbiolo Langhe 2019

Damilano Marghe Nebbiolo Langhe is made from 100 percent Nebbiolo. 

Ruby red with soft garnet reflections, the bouquet has very typical delicate notes reminiscent of violet and red fruits. The wine finishes dry, rightly tannic, with a velvety, harmonic full body.

Review:

Lean, compact and even a little spicy on the close, the Damilano 2019 Langhe Nebbiolo Marghe is an accessible, easy-drinking wine that is loaded with lots of fun varietal character. Wild rose, cassis, cherry and pencil shavings are part of that playlist. The wine's lean texture, its primary fruit and its freshness give Marghe its food-friendly edge. Best After 2022

Fenocchio DOCG Barolo Bussia Riserva 2016

The color is an intense garnet red with orange reflections. Intense aromas that are typical of nebbiolo - rose, truffle, leather.

Review:


"Camphor, ripe berry, forest floor and oak-driven spice aromas lead the nose. Full-bodied and heroically structured, the youthfully austere palate exhibits dried cherry, raspberry compote, licorice and tobacco set against a tannic backbone. Fresh acidity keeps it balanced. Like the Barolos of Yore, this needs years to come around but will offer decades of pleasure. Drink 2028–2046. - KERIN O’KEEFE"

Nebbiolo is a native black grape variety of Piedmont that gives birth also Barolo and Barbaresco. The name ‘Nebbiolo’ derives from the word ‘fog’ and there could be two reasons. The first hypothesis traces the name of Nebbiolo back to the obscured, almost clouded appearance of the grape, covered with abundant bloom. The second hypothesis, more suggestive, is linked to the very late ripening of the grapes: the Nebbiolo grape harvest often takes place in late October, when the vineyards are enveloped in morning mists.

It pairs with pasta, soup, meats, seasonal dishes and medium-aged cheeses.
