The Vineyards and the mission of the Baracchi family: enhancing the territory of Cortona.

The viticultural heritage of the Baracchi company extends over an area of 32 hectares, aproximately 80 acres, spread across four distinct locations, all located within the Controlled Denomination of Origin (DOC) Cortona.

 This territory, known for years for its predisposition to excellent viticulture, combines unique elements such as significant altitude, the presence of stony soils, abundant sunlight, and a microclimate characterized by moderately warm temperatures, dry air, and significant temperature fluctuations.

 Since the beginning of its activity, the Baracchi company has carefully chosen the various grape varieties to cultivate, selecting them based on the specific characteristics of the different plots of land.

This careful selection aims to enhance the peculiarities and typical features of each terroir, thus contributing to give a unique character to the wines produced.
