Additional Information

Manual harvesting is essential and extremely laborious, as workers trek up and down steep steps built into the mountainside. It’s a land of extremes, but there are a few ‘heroes’ left, and Barbacàn can certainly claim this title. Chiavennasca from vineyards at 400 - 750m above sea level. Classic alpine nebbiolo, showing small red-berried fruit and delicate spice notes, with well-balanced firm tannins.
We are a family of farmers wholly involved in the organic cultivation of our autochtonous grapes, mainly Chiavennasca, also known as Nebbiolo, from 7 hectars on our millenarian terraced slopes. In vineyards all the activities are manual, no tractors or other machines, only the strength of our legs and our arms. Valtellina is one of the very few place left in the World where resists a real heroic viticulture.
