Fletcher Barbaresco Faset Cru 2021


2019 was the first year David has bottled Faset as a single Cru. David describes Faset has an ‘unparalleled richness’, a trait shared due to the similar soils with Asili, Rabaja and Rio Sordo. Perhaps easier to understand is that it’s the closest wine in David’s bottlings to Barolo in style. In the review tasting of the three wines this Cru definitely has the most fruit and density to the wine, highly aromatic, so much classic tar and roses in this wine.

Faset is on the same soil as Roncaglie but is just slightly cooler, always kind of picked a little bit after Roncaglie. So if I said is the Faset has the densest biggest structure of the Cru’s I make, more Barolo than Barbaresco. 

100% destemmed. Open ferment. Pressed to barrel. Elevage in old oak, over 10 years old, 300ltr barrels. Barbaresco can only be released on the 3rd January following harvest, giving the wine approx. 27 months total aging. David ages his wines for 24 months in barrel (legally it only needs be 12 as a minimum) then 3 months in bottle. David Fletcher
