Barbacan is a small, family-owned winery of only 6 hectares. The vineyards are located on terraced slopes characteristic of Valtellina, a narrow valley northeast of Milan, Lombardy. The steepness of the terraces makes working these vineyards extremely difficult, hence the designation “heroic viticulture”.
It has perfumes of small red fruits, violets, flowers, pepper and wild spices. Also on the palate it is very typical, fresh, spicy and quite tannic.
