Brothers Pico and Vitaliano created the Pico Maccario brand in 1997 following four generations of selling the family grapes to other producers. Vitaliano Maccario, the youngest brother, devotes himself to the production of the wine and handles the commercial aspects of the business. He has always dedicated a large part of resources to technological innovation and research in the vineyard. 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.
