Faset Barbaresco DOCG 2014

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.

harvest note

The year 2014 in Piedmont was particularly rainy in the summer period, where the careful and professional management in the vineyard made the difference. The Barbaresco area was the exception, where the rainfall was decidedly inferior by 200 mm, above all in the better exposed vineyards which were able to achieve great Faset wines. This is an 50 year “old” vineyard which has produced a Barbaresco with extraordinary character and elegance with notes of dried rose petals, small fruits, hints of minerals and a charming spiciness.

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.
