Renato Fenocchio Langhe Nebbiolo 2019
100% Nebbiolo. Sourced from two differing vineyards. One from 60 year vines from Nicolini village, not with the Cru boundaries (Barbaresco) + plot of 32 years old vines in the Cotta Cru (Nieve). This wine could effectively be classified as Barbaresco but as it’s not aged in wood/appropriate aging time it becomes Langhe Nebbiolo. Let’s remember 15% of the blend can be Barbara by DOP laws however the Fennochio’s are passionately against this, wanting to showcase Nebbiolo in it’s purest form.
Hand picked, crushed and fermented on skins for approx 7 to 9 days. Pressed to tank, aged in tank, no oak used in the elevage.
