Curiosity

The word “Sansì” in Piedmont dialect means “San Siro”. The winery stands on San Siro hill, where there is still the church dedicated to the saint. The vineyards of this Barbera surround this church. It seemed natural to call the wine with the same name of these “Sansì” vineyards. The label well represents the color of Barbera wine with all its shades of purple, dark red and blue. San Siro was also a crusader, a knight and we like to think he can protect these Barbera vineyards. Also for this reason the family decided to adopt “Scagliola Sansì” as emblem of the winery
