Petite's notes: Crown cap, bubbles on the label. Though you might be surprised that this Nebbiolo is actually still, it will make you want to be anything but. Do a happy dance - this is a light and chillable Nebbiolo! We're big fans of what might be referred to as "table" reds - wines meant to be drunk young and quickly. Take that concept and elevate it times a thousand. This wine is ALIVE and it wants out! Dress it up with boar/squash ravioli, dress it down with a greasy NY style slice.

Luca's winemaking is hands off - only indigenous yeast, whole bunch maceration, concrete vats & used barrels. His goal is to obtain wine that becomes the "liquid translation of our grapes, vineyards and vintages". He believes that Nebbiolo and Arneis are the best grapes able to "translate" in wine the terroir of Roero.

Luca Faccenda grew up in the hills of Roero and his family has been making wines in Valfaccenda, a small valley between Canale and Cisterna in Piedmont for many years. He started "Valfaccenda" in the 2010 after getting "the vineyard of my family" back from a long rental contract.

He is proud of the area and knows it very well. He has no desire to emulate the wines of nearby Langhe which is a good thing for us since the wines he makes here in Roero are a beautiful representation of this beautiful area!
