Nebbiolo

Nebbiolo is a dark skinned grape that is used to produce red wine It is most famours for making the rose and tar aroma of Barolo wines produced in the Piedmont region of northwestern Italy. The name of the grape is evocative of its home in the foothills of the western Alps. Nebbia is Italian for fog, which arrives in the early mornings in October. The Nebbiolo grape is harvested during this time. Producing light colored red wines, Nebbiolo grapes are known for making wines that can be quite tannic when young. As these same wines age, the characteristics tend to take on a brick-orange hue at the rim of the glass. When fully matured, the wines finally reveal other flavors and aromas such as wild herbs, violets, tar, raspberries, cherries, tobacco, prunes, and truffles. Nebbiolo wines often require years of aging in order to balance the tannins with the other characteristics. Wines from Nebbiolo grapes have large amounts of tannin and acid. The majority of wines are built for aging, in fact, some of the highest quality vintages need to age at least a decade. Some vintages can age upwards of 30 years when the bouquet becomes appealing and much more complex. Other Nebbiolo aromas include leather, dried fruit, damsons, mulberries, fresh and dried herbs, and mulberries.

Fenocchio DOCG Barolo 2014

Fenocchio Barolo 2010 is 100 percent Nebbiolo. 

Claudio and Albino Fenocchio own 10 hectares of vineyards. This Barolo comes from a blend of Bussia in Monforte d'Alba and Castellero in Barolo. The soil in Bussia is helvetian ( limestone and clayey blue marl) which contributes much to the fullness and excellent aging potential of these wines. The Castellaro vineyard is of tortonian soil (blue marl and sandstone mixed with sand) which gives a velvety mouth feel and exceptional aromatics. The vines are an average of 30 years old.

Color: Ruby red with garnet reflections
Bouquet: Rich bouquet with hints of blueberries, roses and liquorice.
Taste: Densely structured with a full, complex flavor. It is an elegant wine with firm tannins and good acidity that will become velvety and graceful with age. This wine is generous and bold. The finish is long and lingering.

Long slow natural fermentation without the addition of yeasts for 30 days. Closed stainless steel vat fermentation with frequent pumping over maintains the temperature at a constant 29°C. This extracts greater aromatics while causing the heavier tannins to break down and to precipitate out.

Acidity: 5.2
Alcohol by Volume: 14.5 %

Game, grilled and roasted red meats and ripe and mature cheeses. Dishes with truffles.

The Barolo Bussia, with its structure and body characteristics, pairs well with dishes of meat, game and aged cheeses, typical dishes of the local cuisine, as well as with many rich international dishes.

Review:

"The 2015 Barolo Bussia is a wine of power, density and gravitas, all of which come through in its decidedly vertical feel and rather somber expression. A whole range of balsamic-infused notes wrap around a core of dark fruit as this potent Barolo shows off its distinctive personality. The 2015 needs time to be at its best, but it is unquestionably impressive, even in the very early going. - Antonio GALLONI - Vinous (November 2019), 94 pts
