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.
