Renato Fenocchio Barbaresco Rombone 2017
Milva Fennochio describes this cru as consistently being accessible earlier for enjoyment than the Staderi they also produce. Rombone Cru is on the last hill as you travel West through the commune of Treiso.
Vines were originally planted by Renato’s Grandfather who gave a parcel to each of his three grand daughters. All three were re-unified by Renato and Milva in recent times making a total of 1.4 hectares. Some of the site was replanted in 1997 giving the plot an average age of 35 years old. South West facing. The clone they planted develops more tannin hence the short maceration time (see below).
Hand picked, fermented on skins for 10 to 12 days approximately. Pressed to 3000 ltr lightly toasted Slavonian barrel. 12 months in barrel.
