Wine Maker

Enrico and Marco Faccenda

“The Faccendas produce wines with an easy drinking ripeness to please the modern school while maintaining depth and edge to satisfy any Northern Italian purist.”

Soil Specificity

The soils in Piemonte are influenced by their location within the mountain. The top of the hills are poor and essentially based on alluvial deposits. The lower part of the mountain is made up of clay-limestone soil with a variable proportion of sand, which often determines the degree of finesse in the wines. Piedmont sits at the foot of the Western Alps which encircle the best sites around the cities of Alba and Asti - made up with calcareous marl and sandstone.

A Passionate Lineage

Guidobono estate marries the experience and passion of the Faccenda family with an ability to offer amazing value for money. Cascina Chicco, owned by the family, has been famous for generations in Roero for their Arneis, Barbera and Nebbiolo. The recent acquisition, in 2013, of Guidobono helped making the Faccendas' dream of producing Barolo true. This project seems to be the answer to the great Piemonte quandary: modern or traditional? With a foot in both camps.
