Barbaglia

Over the years, Silvia Barbaglia has become one of the faces of the Viticulture of Upper Piedmont. We are here on the territory of Boca, one of the smallest appellation areas in Italy. Created in 1969, it now has more than 40 hectares and less than 10 producers. Nevertheless, the land of Boca is exceptional: Born of a super volcano explosion millions of years ago, it covers its caldera left open. This explains that its soil is extremely rich in minerals, especially thanks to the columns of pink porphyry which confers on the wines a salient minerality, slightly saline. In addition, the increased acidity of the field offers a great freshness and ensures the durability of the wines.

The history of the Barbaglia, settled in the town of Cavallirio dates from before the creation of the appellation zone, since Mario Barbaglia founded his wine storehouse in 1946 and began his pilgrimage on a bike to make his wines known in the region. More than 70 years later, Silvia traveled the world to represent Boca.

With 4 hectares of vineyards, Silvia is very much appreciated in the region and beyond, since it has made friendships with winemakers from the north to the south of the boot, notably thanks to its involvement in the FIVI, the Italian Federation of Independent Winegrowers.
