Barbacan Rosato is a rosé made from local varieties Chiavennasca (local name for Nebbiolo), Rossola, Brugnola, Negrera, Beessana, and Pignola, all grown organically in Valtellina, Lombardy, Northern Italy, from vineyards at 750 meters. Spontaneous fermentation, unfined, unfiltered, no added sulfites.
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". At Barbacan everything is done by hand in the most natural way possible: no chemicals in the vineyards or in the cellar, no industrial yeasts, spontaneous fermentation, unfined, unfiltered, no added sulfites. One of the few 100% natural winemakers in Valtellina.
