A whole range of balsamic-infused notes wrap around a core of dark fruit as this potent Barolo shows off its distinctive personality. The 2015 needs time to be at its best, but it is unquestionably impressive, even in the very early going. -- Antonio Galloni

Give it a few more years to unwind and fully develop. Drink 2023–2030.

The cherry-scented nose is sumptuous and rich, an opulence that's mirrored on the bold, plum palate. The mighty tannins are rather overbearing now, giving a solid wine with a sobering structure. Long, but needs time. Read more at https://www.decanter.com/wine-reviews/italy/piedmont/giacomo-fenocchio-bussia-barolo-monforte-d-alba-2015-28241#T4UAVIQgoxBZAwGC.99
