Barbacan Description

Barbacàn is Angelo Sega and his sons Luca and Matteo. They grow and collect Nebbiolo, Chiavennesca as the locals call it, from their 3 hectares of vineyards in San Giacomo di Teglio in Valtellina on the border of Switzerland in the Italian Alps.  The Sega men are grower-producers, the vanguard of Valgella with a passion stronger than the mountains they work in.  It is not easy land to work, nor does the climate assist.  Steep terraced vineyards 450+ meters above sea level that involve tremendous amounts of hard, back-breaking work to obtain and maintain, 'heroic viticulture' as the Italians call it. From vineyard to bottle, their strength, passion and hard work is evident.

Wine Notes: Söl is the Sega's premier wine and everything a high quality Valtellina wine should be. Respectfully made with fine attention- vinefied in stainless steel, then 1 year in french oak, mallo-ed naturally as nature intended, then back in stainless for a half dozen months. When ready they bottle and allow their gems to relax for a a half dozen more in  bottle until released. Worthy? You will question your worthiness to drink such a prize.
