Faset Barbaresco DOCG

Certified Sustainable, Organic or Biodynamic Green Certified

Region: Italy / Piedmont / Barbaresco

100% Nebbiolo from vineyards of Barbaresco. The soil is greyish-white calcareous marl with bands of veins of sand running through it, rich in minerals among which magnesium and manganese predominate. Faset is a Nebbiolo that ferments for 17/18 days with the skins in 55hl oak vats, where malolactic fermentation takes place. It is refined for a minimum of 2 years, ageing in large casks for 18 months, before final refinement in the bottle. It is a noble wine of excellent character and pleasantness, suited to medium ageing.

tasting note

Garnet with brilliant hues. The nose is ample and aristocratic, notes of dried rose petals, small red fruits and an elegant hint of minerals combined with fine spices. The Faset has great structure, marked minerality with the dense texture of fine tannins. It is elegant and welcoming.

food pairing

Wild rabbit with Juniper berries, roast pheasant, agnolotti with roast sauce, well-matured cheeses.
