2011 Barolo Villero Giacomo Fenocchio

Average critic rating : 90.5 points



A refined and incredibly balanced wine with cedar, berry and milk chocolate character. Full-bodied yet so silky and beautiful. Hard not to drink now. James Suckling. April, 2015.



The 2011 Barolo Villero is a difficult wine to read. The nose lacks the balance you should expect from a top-shelf, pedigree wine like Barolo. Indeed, the wine's overall personality is easy, fresh and lacking in great depth or dimension. The Villero vineyard (in Castiglione Falletto) is known for its structured wines. You get nice firmness here, but the bouquet needs some refining and further fine-tuning. ||Claudio Fenocchio shows promising results and big quality improvements in this batch of new releases. His portfolio includes expressions from some of the most important vineyard sites in Barolo. This makes him a good go-to producer especially if you are a Barolo beginner. eRobertParker.com.June, 2015
