Giacomo Fennocchio, Barolo Cru "Bussia"

Five generations of Fenocchios have been producing wine from their holdings in Monforte d’Alba since 1894. Most of the production was sold locally up until 1964, when the ambitious and energetic Giacomo Fenocchio took over the estate. In his quest to make the finest wines in all of Barolo, he purchased prime parcels in Cannubi and nearby Castellero, but his focus was always on what he liked to call the heart of the Barolo area, the Bussia.

The vineyards of Bussia yield the biggest and richest Barolo. They also take the longest to fully mature. The Fenocchio style is very old-school but, magically, the wines are approachable earlier than one would expect for such cellar-worthy Barolos.

Sourced directly from the West Coast Importer. Bottles are of perfect provenance and mint condition.
