Barbacan, 'Sol' Valtellina Superiore Valgella 2019Regular price $43.00 Save $-43.00
Barbacan is a miniscule estate of just three hectares in the far north of Italy on the Swiss border. Here the Sega family is one of the few growers in the appellation of Valtellina in Lombardy that are making wine completely naturally. Coupled with what the Italians call “heroic viticulture,” the grueling work put forth by this father and his two sons is beyond impressive. Valtellina is a serious valley of terraced vineyards. Both human efforts and the grapes are stressed, and this shows in the beautiful wines of this unique Alpine area. Chiavennasca is the local name for the variety we know as Nebbiolo.
“Sol” means sun in Italian. As seen from the label, the sun plays a vital role in the life of the vine, as well as how the Chiavennasca vines are terraced at very high altitudes. The juice spends three months macerating on the skins, then ages in a mixture of acacia and chestnut barrels for one year. It then spends another nine months in concrete before it’s ready.
