2019 Barbacán Rosato di Valtellina Chiavennasca
The 2019 Barbacán Rosato di Valtellina is 100% Chiavennasca (the local name for Nebbiolo), it’s a spontaneous ferment and shortly macerated. Simple and freshness with strawberry notes. Tight upon opening, if you can restrain yourself, let it sit for a few minutes, fantastic drinking!
This is the first Rosato that the winery has made and it comes from two extremely old traditional vineyards called Liom and Maruf located at an altitude of 700m. The wine sees just one day of skin contact and is a beautiful pale pink.
Barbacàn is Angelo Sega and his sons Luca and Matteo. They grow Chiavennesca (Nebbiolo), on their 3 hectares of vineyards in San Giacomo di Teglio in Valtellina on the border of Switzerland in the Italian Alps. The Sega men are grower/producers, with resolve and deep passion for what they do.
