Description

The wines from the Villero Cru (Castiglione Falletto) tend to be favourite of mine as I have a particular fondness for the perfumed Barolos that come from here. A small 8 hectares/20 acres, the Fenocchio’s own 1ha. Other notable producers include Giuseppe Mascarello, Bruno Giacosa, Vietti and Brovia. Average age of the vines here is 60 years. Vinification is traditional with long maceration, natural fermentation in stainless steel (40 days). Wine is then aged for six months in stainless steel followed by 30 months in large Slavonian oak casks. There is a particular brightness to this Villero and the nose is very complex and rich with notes of fruit (cherry, plum), flowers, scents, spices, underbrush. It is intensely flavored with well-integrated chalky tannins. Pair with game and aged cheeses.
