Cascina Chicco Roero
The Faccenda brothers, Enrico and Marco, have 20 ha from which a broad range of good-quality Langhe wines are produced. An excellent Barbera is usually better than anything else – a suave, spicy and scented Bric Loira that is aged in barriques. However in the best years for Nebbiolo this is rivalled by a fine Roero Valmaggiore that once again shows the refinement and expression possible from this appellation. Nebbiolo d’Alba Mompissano can show similar flair when the conditions are right. Roero Arneis can be good too while Arcass is an attractive, aromatic sweet version of Arneis.
