Long heralded as "The King of Wines", Barolo has come to be recognized as one of Italy's most important and complex wines. First produced during the Risorgimento period for the House of Savoy and perfected by generations of Piemontese winemakers looking to create an elegant wine exuding structure and unique personality, the Nebbiolo produced in the district's eleven villages rank among the world's most famous and sought-after wines.
Located between Monforte d'Alba and Castiglione Faletto in the center of the zone, Giacomo Fenocchio has become one of Barolo's most famous producers. The estate boasts some 12 hectares of southern facing vineyards, concentrated in 3 of the region's most important cru sites--Bussia, Cannubi, and Villero. Committed to preserving regional and family winemaking traditions that date to the 1860s, a long maceration time of 45 days is employed for the Nebbiolo comprising each cru Barolo, and extended aging is done in traditional oak casks. The exceptional wines produced by the current generation offer an astounding combination of territorial character, aging potential, and reasonable pricing. Highly rated by wine critics the world over, they represent some of the finest examples of Barolo available in the market today.
