Barbacan

Barbacan

The company Barbacàn is located in the town of San Giacomo di Teglio, in Valtellina, in the heart of the Valgella subzone. Behind the name Barbacan we find Angelo Sega with his sons Luca and Matteo who in this area cultivate 3 hectares of vineyards located at 500 m.s.l.m. on sandy soils rich in shrubs, gneiss, granites, and quartz. The vineyards, located in the classic Valtelline terraced terraces that make heroic viticulture, are planted exclusively in Nebbiolo or as it is said in these parts in Chiavennasca. To emphasize their union with the territory and the preservation of tradition, the Sega family, cultivated a nursery staff with thirty biotypes of different Chiavennasca. Their approach is natural in both vineyards and cellars, and this is reflected in their wines, which are not homologated to a standard taste, but different in every vintage, because every year the climatic and atmospheric conditions that interact for 12 months with vines are different . Angelo is a vine-maker who creates a true bond between himself and the wine that will come to taste, and together with nature he is the creator of the result. Every season repeats ancient gestures that carry on the identity of a people who have always been linked to the cultivation of the nebbiolo. Barbacan produces three wines: Rosso di Valtellina, Valtellina Superiore Valgella Söl and Valtellina Superiore Valgella Pizamej, and in a few years bottles an effort. Barbacan wines are artisan in the true sense of the word and respectful of the terror of belonging, the vintages are expressed with their bizarre and equilibri, always different always unpredictable.
