The Fenocchio are a family of Monforte, winegrowers for generations, but it was with Giacomo in the seventies that the fantastic development of their wines began. The cellar was founded in 1864, and today it is Claudio and Albino Fenocchio to guide it in that remarkable wine-growing panorama that is Bussia di Monforte. The production philosophy that distinguishes this historic Piedmont wine cellar is that of tradition, made of careful work in vineyards and long vinifications with the use of large barrels in the cellar. The result is really amazing and stunning: a fine wine, played on the delicate elegance and tones typical of the Nebbiolo variety.
The grapes are grown in the vineyard Bussia, 4 hectares of land exposed to the southwest on clayey and lime-rich, iron-rich land. Since 1972 the company also owns a vineyard in Cannubi, and since 1995 it is part of the property also a vineyard in Villero, another historic, highly vocated vineyard.
The cultivation in all the vineyards is based on the principles of sustainability aimed at reducing the environmental impact more and more. All of this has led Claudio to vinify with a safe hand, without consulting, in a traditional manner and minimizing the interventions in the cellar, obtaining as a result of sincere wines, respectful of terroir and vintage; Wine away from homologation, but incredibly fascinating for their intense aromas and perfumes: in one word, unique.
