Grape varieties: Baratuciat
Indigenous to the Val di Susa, this grape interests Fabrizio because of its olfactory expression and its high acidity. It is the first white Fabrizio planted because he thinks he can do really interesting things with Baratuciat in his terroir. Its name means "cat's balls" in the Val di Susa dialect because of the shape of the berries, small and oval, a great story in itself. The wine has a lot of complexity, texture and minerality. The vineyard was planted in 2015 and Barat already showed promise with its first release in 2019 of the 2018 vintage. It is destined to become an increasingly important white wine the older the vineyard becomes.
