Within the complex viticultural mosaic that is Piedmont’s much-lauded Langhe region, certain subzones take on an almost reverential quality. The estate of Giacomo Fenocchio can boast access to not one, but several such sites, most notably Cannubi in Barolo and Villero in Castiglione Falletto. The company has been cultivating Nebbiolo from its ten hectares in the heart of the Barolo zone for over five generations. Today, Giacomo Fenocchio’s sons use these historic vineyards to their advantage to produce some of the finest Barolo on the market.

One of the zone’s most prestigious crus, wine has been made from the Cannubi vineyard since the 18th century (the oldest bottle still in existence dates back to 1752). The Fenocchio brothers use Nebbiolo Michet from 25-year-old vines, grown on half a hectare of marly and sandy soil. Located in the nearby hamlet of Castiglione Falletto, the clayey terrain of the renowned Villero vineyard is also rich in iron, allowing for a riper crop from 60-year-old Nebbiolo Michet and Lampia vines.

Both wines undergo a similar vinification process, each spending five months in stainless steel, two years in large botti and a further twelve months in bottle. The Fenocchio brothers’ adherence to their father’s winemaking tradition and techniques results in some of the truest expressions of these legendary crus.

For this reason we are thrilled to introduce these two classically-styled Barolos from Giacomo Fenocchio’s 2003 vintage. Perfect with warm, wintry dishes, there’s no better time to enjoy them than this holiday season!
