Giacomo Fenocchio Barolo 2016 1.5L
WS92: Shy in aroma, this red nonetheless shows harmony and fine intensity to cherry, currant, mint, iron and tobacco flavors. Expands through the long finish, revealing savory details. Best from 2023 through 2040.
WA90: This is a hearty and slightly evolved expression. The Giacomo Fenocchio 2016 Barolo offers a broad range of Nebbiolo characteristics with lots of dark fruit followed by spice, tar and tilled earth. That licorice signature is very strong in this wine. The fruit veers toward heavier black and purple fruit tones, with plenty of tar and campfire ash. Instead of sharpness and precision, this Barolo offers a big-picture approach with wide, sweeping flavors.
