About Giacomo Fenocchio
Currently headed by fifth-generation Claudio Fenocchio, Giacomo Fenocchio is an estate with a long history dating back to 1864. Never straying from the path of the traditional approach, Claudio continues to produce Nebbiolo using time-honoured techniques. His wines undergo long, slow fermentation before aging in large Slavonian oak barrels. Committed to following organic viticultural practices strictly, this estate's Barolo range displays dazzling levels of terroir clarity.
Giacomo Fenocchio rightfully sits amongst the top echelon of Barolo producers alongside Giacomo Conterno and Cavalotto. An artisanal winemaker crafting “classic Barolos that beautifully express their pedigree”, the veteran Italian wine author and critic, Kerin O’Keefe (Wine Enthusiast), named Giacomo Fenocchio one of his favourite Barolo estates. Somehow remaining incredibly affordable despite its very grand accolade, we are thrilled to present the latest vintage offering from this highly esteemed estate.
