Claudio Fenocchio (son of Giacomo) is one of those unsung heroes who makes traditionally-styled Barolo but remains in the shadows of the superstars like Rinaldi or Mascarello. He is just as dedicated to his farming and he makes wine in the same non-interventionist fashion, aging his wines entirely in large Slavonian casks.

What stands out about Fenocchio is his terroir precision. Unlike Bartolo Mascarello, where Maria Teresa blends all her grapes into a single Barolo cuvée, Fenocchio likes to produce cru-specific wines. Tasting through his line-up, we are always stunned at how the characteristic of each vineyard jumps out.

"Blue flower, wild berry, camphor and licorice aromas come to the forefront. Full-bodied and youthfully austere, the palate offers spiced cranberry, red cherry and hints of mocha alongside tightly wound, fine-grained tannins. Fresh acidity keeps it bright." -Kerin O'Keef
