Giacomo Fenocchio Barolo Bussia
Giacomo Fenocchio's Barolo Bussia is sourced from 35 year old Nebbiolo vines grown in the village of Monforte d’Alba. After traditional vinification the wine is matured for 6 months in stainless steel tanks followed by 30 months in large capacity Slavonian oak casks and then further refinement in bottle before release. Deep garnet red in colour the bouquet is fine and pleasing, with intense scents of spiced rose and liquorice. The palate is dry, warm and full bodied with pronounced tannins and a persistent aftertaste. This is a wine particularly suited for long term cellaring. The Barolo Bussia, with its structure and body, pairs particularly well with dishes of meat, game and aged cheeses.
