Notes from the Importer: This small winery is a real bastion of artisan identity in the heart of the Alps, an extraordinary chain of mountains of northern Italy. On these heights, with dizziness slopes and steep terrain, working the land and the vineyard is a heroic gesture. Barbacàn is led by Angelo Sega, with his sons Luca and Matteo. The vines are the native ones, of the tradition of the area, starting with Chiavennasca (local term by which Nebbiolo is called). The company owns just 6 hectares in San Giacomo di Teglio, in the Valtellina region, on terraced slopes that cover themselves with snow in winter. The wines are the most natural imaginable, respectful of the terroir and vintages. The spontaneous fermentations, without the use of selected yeasts, the attention to every detail and the minimal interventions in the cellar, give unique products, of lectern finesse, flavor and elegance.

“We are farmers in the Alps, we preserve pluralism of our ancient native vines and the cultural identity of traditional agronomic practices.In our wine we express the vintages with their oddities and their balances, always different and always unpredictable. Every season we repeat ancient gestures, carrying on the identity of an Alpine people that has always been linked to the cultivation of Chiavennasca”
