If we were to summarize Roero in a single concept, we will think of the Arneis from Valfaccenda. This auctochthonous white grape variety ripens in the steep and sandy vineyards of Loreto and Mompellini in Canale. The vineyards are different, and therefore the moments of harvesting and vinification are different - the only and traditional method to fully express the character of this territory. A juicy and crunchy Arneis, the result of the union of two separate fermentations, one of juice only and one of whole bunches followed by aging in steel and, finally, in the bottle.
Variety: Arneis 100%
Carolina and Luca are Valfaccenda, the most sincere and interesting interpreter of the Roero landscape. They are two wonderful people with whom we will never miss the opportunity to climb up the nervous hills of the Roero, the places where they cultivate their vines with respect, attention to sustainability and with the desire to bring the purest expression of this land into the bottle. Only Nebbiolo and Arneis, autochthonous varieties with which they signed a tacit exclusive contract, to create salty, juicy and crunchy wines. Valfaccenda wines are able, in an original and brilliant way, to tell the drinker their origin, the scent of the vineyard, the healthiness of the plant isthe fresh and alternative spirit of this young and lively couple. The approach in the cellar is sober and conservative: it does not take away or add anything to the natural transformation of the grapes, giving us extraordinary and expressive Nebbioli "in the nose" and Arneis "in the mouth". Real wines, of substance, magnificent labels that we see more and more around the world with enormous joy.
