Tasting Notes

The color is deep garnet red and the bouquet is fine and pleasing, with intense scents of spiced rose and licorice. The flavor is dry, warm, full bodied and balanced with pronounced tannins and a persistent aftertaste. A classically structured wine particularly adapted for aging.

Food Pairings

In its youth try with braised beef cheeks to counteract the firm tannins. As the wine ages, it will pair with softer veal and mushroom type dishes or mushroom risotto.

Third Party Reviews

” Pleasant dried-cherry aromas, colored with nutty spice and dried leaves. Full-to medium-bodied with fine, firm and velvety tannins and a long finish of candied-cherry and chocolate. Give it a few years to meld together better..”- James Suckling 93 pts

Claudio Fenocchio’s 2018s are absolutely gorgeous. Quality has risen pretty dramatically here in recent years. The 2018s are especially notable given how challenging the vintage was throughout the region. Readers in search of fine, classically built Barolos that remain accessible in terms of pricing will want to check out Fenocchio. Galloni, Vinous 91 pts.
