Description

Valfaccenda, founded in 2010 by the husband and wife team of Luca Faccenda and Carolina Roggero, is focused exclusively on the Roero.Here, in the high-altitude, steep, sandy slopes on the north side of the Tanaro River, they are laser focused on vinifying the terroir of their home through the lens of just two grapes: Nebbiolo and Arneis.

Valfaccenda’s Luca and Carolina.

The viticulture history of Roero predates the Romans, local Celtic tribes were probably the first to plant vines in the area. Though the appellation is relatively young, only started in 1985 as a DOC, then elevated to DOCG by 2004. Nonetheless, Roreo is anything but simple, the appellation contains altogether 153 additional geographical indications that a producer can choose to mark on the label, 18 of which are communal.

Roero Rosso needs to be 95%+ Nebbiolo, with 20 months of ageing with at least 6 months in barrel. In contrast Roero Bianco doesn’t require ageing time (unless it’s riserva), but still requires the wine to be made from 95%+ Arneis variety.

The grapes of Valfaccenda’s Roero Bianco come mainly from two vineyards near Madonna di Loreto village, in Valle Faccenda, mga Loreto and Mompellini. As the different areas of the vineyard have various soil characteristics, exposures and vigors, also the harvests and the vinifications try to keep in mind the features of every single portion of this vineyard. Wine is the union of a part made only from the fermentation of the juice and another part from the fermentation of whole grapes; the proportions can change based on the vintage and on its climatic conditions. After the required ageing, the wine is bottled in the waning moon of late spring following the harvest, ready to be sold in autumn.
