In the heart of Franciacorta, in Camignone, lies the historic villa with its 16th-century wine cellars and surrounding properties that offers eloquent testimony to the venerable winemaking patrimony that the Barboglio family inherited in 1836.
This viticultural wealth was developed still further through the far-sighted efforts of Emanuela Barboglio, who planted the first modern, specialised vineyards and in 1968 was one of the first to produce DOC Franciacorta wine.
In 1976 the name of the winery was changed from Azienda Agricola Barzanò Barboglio to the current "il Mosnel," a local dialect word, of Celtic origin, that means "heap of stones," an apt characterisation for the site of the winery.
Directing il Mosnel today is the fifth generation of winegrowers, the children of Emanuela Barboglio. Giulio Barzanò oversees production and sales, while Lucia Barzanò directs marketing, external relations, and administration. The family is fortunate to enjoy the support of a highly professional staff, expert agronomists, and experienced winemaking technicians, all of whom exercise painstaking attention to the production process and to the winery's growth.
