There is no shortage of Nebbiolo in Piedmont, but the one grown on the steep and sandy hills of the Roero is a very distinct expression of this popular vine: the typical tannin of this variety is declined in the mineral structure heir to the territory, creating a Nebbiolo with a harmonious character and singular. The Riserva Valmaggiore is the expression of the homonymous vineyard in the municipality of Vezza d'Alba, famous for its steep slopes and coveted for its exposure. Spread out on these crumbly and clayey hills are the oldest vines of Valfaccenda, dating back to 1947! After the fermentation and maceration of a few weeks, it is aged for 32 months, of which at least 6 in oak barrels. This Nebbiolo is already expressed for its depth and marked concentration which is well balanced by the structure of tannins.
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 an opportunity to climb up the nervous hills of Roero, the places where they cultivate their vines with respect, attention to sustainability and with the desire to bottle the purest expression of this land. Only Nebbiolo and Arneis, autochthonous varieties with which they have signed a tacit exclusivity contract, to create salty, juicy and crunchy wines. Valfaccenda wines are capable of telling the drinker about their origin, the scent of the vineyard, the wholesomeness of the plant and the fresh and alternative spirit of this young and lively couple in an original and brilliant way. The approach in the cellar is sober and conservative: it neither takes away nor adds 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 with great joy we see more and more around the world.
