Vindabeive is “wine to drink”, a 1-liter bottle of Roero Nebbiolo fermented via carbonic maceration, with no added sulfites. It’s a vibrant, fun, and supremely refreshing red that Luca and Carolina of Valfaccenda endearingly call their “picnic wine”.
Roero is undergoing an incredible renaissance, in some ways akin to what Alto Piemonte and Barbaresco have already undergone.
In 2010, Luca Faccenda and his wife Carolina Roggero reclaimed old family Arneis and Nebbiolo vines situated in primary sites within the renowned commune, Canale. Luca’s family land is characterized by steep hillsides and sandy/calcareous soil that is ideal for Nebbiolo and Arneis.
Luca and Carolina epitomize a true salt of the earth, no frills approach that lays bare the true character of their land. Farming is natural and cellar work utilizes indigenous yeasts, long maceration with whole cluster inclusion, and cement tanks and old barrels. While most Roero growers try to “engineer” wines that they believe will garner high scores and gain critical acclaim, Valfaccenda is taking an opposite approach that yields true reference point Italian wines telling a forgotten story of the dense forests and steep hillsides of this ancient land.
