The Fenocchio estate was founded in 1864. For over five generations, with its twelve hectares (thirty acres) of vineyards in the heart of the Barolo production zone, it produces and ages important wines, following in the footsteps of traditions handed down from father to son. In the post-war period, new energy was given to the estate's work by Giacomo Fenocchio, who began to acquire new vineyard land.Before the Second World War, the wine was sold principally in local markets: either in bulk or in demijohns, Larger ambitions began only in the early 1960's, with an eye to foreign markets as well.Today the sons of Giacomo Fenocchio Claudio and Albino export close to eighty per cent of their production, thereby creating a name and reputation for the family and a territory as well as for their wines.The wines have not changed over time: the style is a classic one, without substantial variations or a desire to impress with new techniques, faithful and loyal to venerable traditions, distrustful of an ephemeral popularity if that should mean a gradual loss of identity. Only the equipment for making the wines has changed. Advances in winemaking technology enable producers to mechanize operations and work with greater assurance and systematic and rigorous control of quality both in the vineyard and in the cellars. But fermentation, in any case, still lasts thirty days. The cellar was constructed in the pure and classic style of Piedmont in the year 2000. Despite the satisfying results, both commercially and in the reviews and writing of wine critics states Claudio Fenocchio we do not intend to rest on our laurels. In fact, among the new projects of the estate is the acquisition of new vineyard land in Bussia, a zone in which we firmly believe.Historically eminent among the vineyards and sub-zones with the highest potential for fine Barolo: the oldest bottle of the Langhe district is conserved in the city of Bra and bears the inscription Cannubi 1752: the Cannubi name has always been a seal of honor and a true, universally recognized guarantee. Soils are of Tortonian origin, marls and tuff together with a significant presence of sand in the Cannubi vineyard in the township of Barolo, which maintains a soft and dry texture in the soil.
