The Wine:

The Faset vineyard is one of the most prestigious areas of Barbaresco. In the 1900s, it belonged to the Conti Cocito di Neive but has since been divided between various owners. Planted in 1965, the old vines follow a steep slope with the western side facing the Tanaro River. The Michele Chiarlo Faset parcel is over 7 acres and is part of the Cascina Cabanet. The soil is rich in calcium and magnesium, making it an excellent vineyard and gives the wine its silkiness and elegant tannins. The vines are thinned of excess bunches at the end of summer, leaving 5-6 bunches per vine on average. Hand harvested grapes are fermented on the skins in oak vats and then aged for 18 months in large oak casks before refinement in the bottle.

Garnet in colour, this aristocratic wine offers notes of small red fruits, dried rose petals, and fine spices with an elegant mineral touch. A well-structured and elegant wine with fine tannins and great with mushroom pasta, roast pheasant or mature hard cheeses.

Produced only in excellent vintages with very limited quantities. One of the most prestigious vineyards of Barbaresco. Very low yield.
