Fenocchio's Barolo Villero is quite sensual and inviting in 2015, which is probably a reflection of the year, as wines from this Castiglione Falletto site tend to be quite reticent, especially when young. Spice, menthol, licorice, dried flowers and pine grow with time in the glass. The Villero is another impressive, showy wine in this lineup. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, November 2019)

From Wine Merchants Barolo class 5/16. Berries with hints of fennel and menthol. Cherries with strong tannins. Did well with long decant. Great with Pastaria Bolognese and pizza.

Always hesitant to drink young Barolo. This opened up well and was structured with nice acid and mellow fruit.
