Valfaccenda is located in Canale, on the hills of the Roero, a UNESCO heritage site since 2014, where the landscapes are enlivened by nervous profiles and the soils are of sandy origin. The company was founded in 2010 and is managed by the couple Luca Faccenda and Carolina Oggero who started their project to renovate the grandfather's old farmhouse and restore the old family vineyards of Arneis and
Nebbiolo, class 1982, after taking a degree in oenology in Alba, he began to "make his bones" in a prestigious winery in Barolo. Carolina, on the other hand, worked in Turin as a graphic designer, and her contribution to the company is immediately evident from the splendid labels she designed. Today Luca and Carolina manage 4 hectares of vineyards divided between two vineyards: one facing south, located
in Santo Stefano Roero, which receives the sun all day and gives rich, warm and ripe grapes. The other facing east, in Val Faccenda, a small valley between Canale and Cisterna. The production settles on the 20,000 bottles divided between the "Vin Da Beive", their daily red wine, the "Valfaccenda Rosso" based on
Nebbiolo and aged in large casks, and the "Valfaccenda Bianco" produced from Arneis grapes. The wines of Valfaccenda reflect these hills, the only Roero, nothing else.
The Roero of Valfaccenda winery is a juicy red wine produced with Nebbiolo grapes that come from the Roero hills. It has a ruby red color and a soft and fruity aroma, with raspberry and wood strawberry notes, lightly spiced. The passage in the wood gives to this Nebbiolo a good structure and complexity. The taste is warm and soft, with delicate tannins, dry and harmonic. It is perfect if drunk with important courses of roasted meats, aging cheeses and game.
