2020 Giacomo Fenocchio Barbera d'Alba DOC Superiore
"A big, juicy balanced Barbera which finishes long. It has mounting tannins and clean red cherry and flinty plum nuances. This is lovely, but take note that Fenocchio’s best wine outside his many Barolos is his benchmark Freisa."-Ian d'Agata, Decanter 2020
From two separate parcels of 30-year-old vines in Monforte, now both classified as Bussia cru (1.8 hectares in Bussia Sottana, and 0.7 hectares in Pianpolvere).
Fermentation and maceration on the skins over ten days
Aged for 6 months in stainless steel and 6 months in Slavonian oak casks prior to bottling.
