Baracchi

 

Originally the 17th Century villa of poet Antonio Guadagnoli, the Baracchi estate is located on a beautiful slope just east of Cortona overlooking the Valdichiana Valley. Riccardo Baracchi and his son Benedetto restored the property in order to continue their family practice of grape growing and winemaking, a tradition that dates back to 1860. The Baracchi estate covers 60 hectares of land, 22 of which are planted with vineyards.

Brut Trebbiano

100% Trebbiano
Notes of pear and citrus fruit, as well as mint and almond define the palate of this elegant, beautifully balanced, and expressive wine.

Brut Rose

100% Sangiovese
Very few sparkling wines are made from Sangiovese, and there are only 6,000 bottles of this one produced. It is refreshingly dry with a black currant and sweet almond finish.

Ardito Toscana I.G.T.

50% Syrah, 50% Cabernet Sauvignon
Baracchi’s finest wine ages 20 months in French oak. Black pepper and fruity notes define the nose, with toasted chocolate, vanilla, and smooth tannins on the palate.

O’lillo Toscana I.G.T.

25% each Merlot, Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Syrah
Each varietal in this blend is vinified separately and then fermented in both oak and steel. The result is rich in color and traditional in its complexity, roundness, and elegance, yet modern in its intense fruitiness, accessibility, and soft tannins.

Smeriglio Merlot Cortona D.O.C.

100% Merlot
A year in French oak gives this Merlot aromatic hints of berry and spice. The palate is soft, sweet, and slightly saline with a lingering finish and fruity aftertaste.

Smeriglio Sangiovese Cortona D.O.C.

100% Sangiovese
A hefty charge of medium-smooth tannins characterizes this fresh, well-balanced red which ages one year in French oak. It has a classic finish with superb weight and structure.

Smeriglio Syrah Cortona D.O.C.

100% Syrah
Black pepper and coriander blend with notes of tobacco and wet earth on the nose. The palate is fruity with a strong finish.

Pinot Nero

100% Pinot Nero
The bouquet is harmoniously balanced with the delicate scent of flowers and red fruit. On the palate, a combination of dark berries, youthful cherries, and ripe strawberries merge with a slight hint of spiciness. This Pinot Nero has an elegant texture with lively tannins, and a divine finish.
