In collaboration with Italian Wine Club, fine-dining Italian restaurant Guccio will be hosting a winemaker dinner on Thursday 23 May 2019 at 7.30pm featuring the Barolo wines of Giacomo Fenocchio.
Barolo belongs to the restricted range of one of the oldest and noblest of Italian denominations. The Giacomo Fenocchio winery founded in 1864 is one of the most illustrious representatives of this type of wine and has always produced some of the most traditional Barolos in the appellation. Nowadays this splendid cellar is sensitively but resolutely run by Claudio Fenocchio, representing the fifth generation of vine dressers in the family. All the wines come exclusively from the winery’s own vineyards located in some of the legendary Grand Cru of the Langhe hills in Piedmont, such as Bussia, Villero, Cannubi and Falletto.
The wines are produced without shortcuts, with natural fermentation, lengthy maceration on the skins and aging in large barrels (no barriques!). They are capable of aging for long periods finding the right complexity in the bottle. they have a forceful character, strong, structured, harmonious and aromatic.
For this wine dinner, Giacomo Fennochio’s owner and winemaker Claudio Fennochio will be on hand to introduce his winery and wines to diners. The wines will be paired with exquisite dishes from Executive Chef Marco Guccio. The full wine and food pairing menu is given below.
This Giacomo Fennochio Barolo dinner costs $148++ per person. To book a spot, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 6224 1684.
