The Villa Sparina estate was purchased by Mario and Bruna Moccagatta in the late 1970s long before anyone could imagine how popular Italian white wine would become in the decades to follow.*

Their vineyards stretch over 70 hectares in the northern section of the Gavi appellation, which is situated in southern Piedmont. Here, the clay marl soils alternate with diluvial and gravelly soils, ideal for the production of richly flavored white wines with immense aging potential. Lying at altitudes between 800 and 1000 feet ASL, the vineyards benefit from the maritime influence of the Mediterranean, about an hour’s drive by car.*

The winery is known for its distinctive bottle shape. It was inspired by an old bottle that was discovered in the estate’s historic cellar.*

Today, Villa Sparina is run by Mario and Bruna's children, Stefano, Tiziana, and Massimo.

The 2020 Villa Sparina Barbera del Monferrato was fermented in stainless steel and aged in a combination of stainless steel and seasoned oak barrels. It is medium-bodied and plush, with ripe red and black fruit characters layered with hints of brambly earth and herbs. Check out the press!

91 points, James Suckling:
"A deliciously juicy barbera with a mouthful of dark cherries, citrus, crushed blueberries, and plums on the palate, showing well-judged generosity and succulence with silky tannins. Effortlessly drinkable."
