2018 Barbacan Rosso di Valtellina Chiavennasca

Lombardy, Italy

Using mostly Chiavennasca, the local name for Nebbiolo, Barbacan has delivered a juicy, red fruited Rosso di Valtelina. What jumps out are delicious flavours of cherries with a background of black pepper. Balanced tannins and great acidity means it is as easily drinkable now as it would be in a couple of years. The grapes are fermented in a mix of concrete and stainless steel, then aged for 9 months before an additional 3 months in bottle.

About the maker

In the breathtaking region of Valtellina, the Sega family have been making beautiful and true expressions of Nebbiolo since 2006.

These wines display incredible freshness and lighter body compared to the better known Piedmont nebbiolos. The high altitude and steepness of the vineyards give Barbacan wines this characteristic. To give a pure expression, the Sega brothers use organic viticulture, only manual cultivation and minimal intervention in the winemaking process.
