Valfaccenda Valmaggiore Nebbiolo
Valmaggiore is a red wine made from Nebbiolo grapes handled and vinified by Carolina Roggero and Luca Faccenda in Canale, in Roero.
The grapes come from a single vineyard based in Audinaggio, in Valmaggiore mga, in Vezza d'Alba municipality. The original core of this vineyard dates back to 1947 and the steep slope of the hill only allows manual processing. The exposure is south-east, east; the soil is sandy with a steep slope. The grapes are harvested at the best state of ripeness depending on each vintage and on the plants. Wine is the result of grapes fermentation and maceration which last a couple of weeks; the period can change based on the vintage and on its climatic conditions. After the required aging in casks, the wine is bottled in the waning moon of autumn following the harvest. Finally after a further rest in bottle for almost two year, the wine is ready to be sold. In the best vintages it may boast the mention of "reserve".
For us, be winemakers and winegrowers means working the soil, cultivating the vines and fermenting the grapes, obtaining wines that are the liquid translation of our land, vintage and variety. And this is exactly what we can offer you in a glass of Valmaggiore: our expression of Nebbiolo grown on the sandy and unique hills of Valmaggiore.
