Barbacarlo is the Italian symbol of enological craftsmanship, a peasant wine produced as it was once made by the knight Lino Maga in the hills of Broni. As Lino says, "the important thing is that you like it" and even if it is too sweet it bottles the same because the vintage must reflect the place and the time. Every year a surprise and every year a new experience, never banal and always original. Lino Maga is a character who deserves to be known personally, a true farmer of other times, strongly linked to his land. The firm and wise look of the one who lived the vineyard and the time, and that damn cigarette that accompanies him in every moment.
