Barbacan Valtellina Superiore Valgella, Pizamej 2016

Barbacan

The Pizamej is a rich yet elegant Nebbiolo with concentrated red fruit, smooth tannins and a long finish. These grapes are from a vineyard planted in the 1930s.

Barbacan farms seven hectares in Valtellina, a valley in the Italian Alps near the Swiss border. The incredibly steep slopes of Valtellina require 'heroic viticulture', as the locals call it. This means all work is manual and farming is organic. In the cellar, Barbacan practices minimal intervention winemaking, native yeast fermentation, and no sulphur is added until bottling.

Jason at Vinified Wine has broadened my wine-drinking horizons! It’s been fantastic having an expert who can guide me to discover new favourites, as well as source hard-to-find bottles I’ve tried and loved elsewhere, and delight us every time a new case arrives. Vinified Wine provides incredible value and quality for every taste and every budget. Thank you Jason!

Jason is insanely talented at what he does. His extensive travel throughout Europe and beyond to find the best, organic and often small wine producers mean you get access to bottles which you would never otherwise have discovered. He isn’t just skilled at picking out outstanding wine. He is passionate about listening to people and what they like and then really trying to find something he thinks matches their taste (and budget.) That is what sets him apart. Getting a delivery from Vinified is a real treat.
