Barbera d'Asti Lavignone is a bright and aromatic wine with aromas and flavors of red cherries, violets and wild herbs. Soft tannins and a moderate level of alcohol and medium weight make Lavignone an ideal wine for immediate enjoyment. It can be served at room-temperature or slightly chilled and with a wide range of foods.

Pico Maccario is a Barbera specialist located in the town of Mombaruzzo in the heart of Piedmont’s Barbera d’Asti DOCG. Brothers Pico and Vitaliano created the Pico Maccario brand in 1997 following four generations of selling the family grapes to other producers. Pico Maccario, the eldest brother, devotes himself to the production of the wine while Vitaliano handles the commercial aspects of the business. 8000 rose bushes planted at the end of each vine row are both the symbol of the winery as well as a traditional indicator of vine-threatening diseases. Pico Maccario’s winemaking style is to respect the true varietal character of Barbera, delivering wines with focused, clean aromas, and balanced, pleasant acidity. These are very complete Barberas, that are as versatile and enjoyable, as rich and satisfying, in pure Piemontese tradition. Barbera d’Asti DOCG lies in the heart of Italy’s Piedmont region. The town of Mombaruzzo is located about an hour’s drive southeast of Asti itself and is home to the Pico Maccario winery. Here, brothers Pico and Vitaliano Maccario own 70 contiguous hectares, a rarity in the region. 60 of the 70 hectares are dedicated to Barbera with the remainder planted to a handful of international and typical Piemontese varietals. The average elevation of the vineyards is 180 meters and the soils are based on clay. Pico Maccario credits the quality of their wines to the large proportion of old vines, some of which are over 80 years old. Pico Maccario has always dedicated a large part of their resources to technological innovation and research in the vineyard. They are strong in their conviction that innovative technology leads to the highest possible quality. The estate boasts state-of-the-art equipment, including stainless-steel tanks that have computerized controls for monitoring temperature at all stages of vinification. A range of Barberas are produced, each with different aging regimes. Lavignone, the most important wine of the estate, is aged entirely in stainless steel tanks while Tre Roveri ages in “botti grandi” (large casks) and Epico in French barriques. Purity and balance is the goal of every Pico Maccario wine.
