    Barbacan

    The vineyards of Azienda Agricola Barbacan are some of the most dramatically situated in the world. Planted on precipitous millenarian terraces of Valtellina in the Italian Alps, some only a metre wide, the vines worked by Mateo and Luca Sega produce world class Nebbiolo (known locally as Chiavennasca) that shows incredible freshness, energy and balance, often over-performing much more expensive Nebbiolos from Piemonte. Jancis Robinson described Valtellina Nebbiolo as the "sleekest, most perfumed, long-lived expression" and Barbacan is arguably the finest iteration of the region's wines. Largely responsible for the rejuvenated interest in this Alpine DOCG, Barbacan's wines are at the forefront of Italian new wave winemaking and their uncompromising efforts and reluctance to drive their prices up have served them very well indeed.

    Barbacan Azienda Agricola Rosso di Valtellina 2018 (1x150cl)

    Jancis Robinson (17+)

    Field blend of Chiavennasca (Nebbiolo), Rossola, Pignola, Brugnola and Negrera, all rare local varieties. Fermented in stainless steel with indigenous yeast without added SO2 (which is added only at bottling). Total of 20 days on the skins. Part of the wine was aged on the fine lees in stainless steel and part in concrete. ‘We macerate for a shorter time in warm years, but longer in cooler years to get softer tannins. In warmer years there is just no need and with longer maceration in warm years you lose freshness.’ Cask sample 1: Youthful mid ruby. Pure and focused red-fruit nose with a little lift and a hint of raw meat. Succulent and a little vibrant on the attack. Savoury, sappy, red-fruit finish with soft, coating tannins. Refreshing and original. Cask sample 2: Just mid ruby. A little deeper with minerally, earthy notes and hints of iron. Vibrant, lifted raspberry fruit and sandpapery tannins. Truly complementary to cask sample 1. (WS)
