Giacomo Fenocchio Barolo 2019
JD92: The 2019 Barolo pours a deep ruby and comes from a single parcel just outside of Bussia in Monforte d'Alba. It saw 40 days of maceration and was fermented in stainless steel tanks before being aged in 25- to 35-hectoliter Slavonian oak casks. Alluring and ripe, it reveals notes of balsamic, black cherry, and purple flowers. This medium-bodied red has moderate tannins, with elegant freshness throughout, and expresses wild raspberry fruit and dusty earth. It is an outstanding value to drink over the next 8-10 years.
