2019 Barbacan “Rosso di Valtellina” BlendRegular price $55.00
Barbacan really shows their ideals and principles by choosing to grow organic grapes on the terraced alpine slopes of Valtellina. It’s so difficult to manage these vineyards, that this is considered “Heroic Viticulture”, however, Barbacan accepts the challenges, making handcrafted wines to ensure customers receive great value wines with the true character of the terroir.
The blend contains Chiavennasca (Nebbiolo), Rossola, Rossolino Rosa, Brugnola, Pignola & Negrera grapes, and shows both complexity and the beauty of Italian creativity. Plums, violets, spices, and dried herbal flavors are well-balanced with ripe tannins and vivid acidity.
