Šīs vīndarītavas sākums datējams ar 1894. gadu, un jau piektā Fenočio (Fenocchio) ģimenes paaudze ražo vīnu savā darītavā pašā Busijas sirdī, Monforte d’Alba kopienā. Līdz 1964. gadam lielākā daļa saražoto vīnu tika pārdota vietējā tirgū, kad ambiciozais un enerģiskais Džakomo Fenočio pārņēma vīndarītavas vadību. Viņa mērķis bija ražot labākos vīnus visā Barolo, tāpēc viņš iegādājās izcilākos vīnogulājus prestižākajās Langes reģiona vīnogu audzētavās. Šobrīd vīndarītavas vadības grožus ir pārņēmis Džakomo dēls Klaudio, kurš turpina tēva aizsāktās tradīcijas, ražojot lieliskus vīnus no vīnogām, kas aug labākajos Barolo vīna dārzos. Šos vīnus var raksturot, kā vien vēlaties – minimālistiski, tradicionāli, vecmodīgi, bet svarīgākais ir tas, ka Klaudio radītie vīni atspoguļo teruāra īpašības vistīrākajā veidā, kas raksturīgs tikai augstākā līmeņa vīndariem. Ja meklējat nākamo Itālijas vīna darīšanas zvaigzni, tad esat to atraduši. Pavisam nesen The New York Times veiktā Barolo vīnu vērtējumā Fenočio vīni ieguva 2. vietu, piekāpjoties tikai Elio Altare, bet pārspējot Elio Grasso, Massolino un Vietti vīnus. Šobrīd vīnu astronomiskā kvalitāte apsteidz cenu, kas nozīmē tikai to, ka Fenočio ir jābūt ikviena Barolo vīnu cienītāja vīna skapī.
Nebbiolo wines tipically have rich, but elegant tannins, high acidity and unic scent – often characterized as "roses and tar". After a few years of vintage, most Nebbiolo wines begin fading from intensive ruby to a glorious brick orange color and developing flavors of mushroom, moss, leather and black pepper.
Barolo wines are the best Nebbiolo can offer - they are luxurious and sophisticated. At young age these wines show uncontrollable temper with sharp and high tannins and almost searing acidity, though already noticeable aromas of violets, red currant and licorice. With age the wine bouquet acquires the wealth and fullness deprived in its youth as the taste becomes more rounded, adding peppery tones and shades of red berries, but the aromas are replaced by flavors of tobacco, leather and tar. Barolo wines are worth saving for important occasions - they are excellent even after 20 years of aging.
