Vineyards

Made up of 32 hectares, approximately 80 acres, Riccardo Baracchi’s vineyards are located in 4 distinct locations within the DOC Cortona, a terroir renowned for centuries for the guaranteed quality of the location of earthy soils, full light, high altitude, and a microclimate of warm and dry temperatures. Each individually planted varietal, were carefully choosen based on the match of soil-to-varietal so that each plants characteristics and features were brilliantly accentuated.

 

Production Zones


 
San Martino
Saint Martin Zone, located near the cellar, has sandy soils. Well intended for excellent draining capabilities, here you will find Syrah, Sangiovese and a small quantity of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. These vineyards produce wines of great elegance and harmony.
 
Gabbiano
The Gabbiano Zone is a hilly position overlooking Cortona and Montepulciano, with soil that has a calcareous and clay composition, and rich in minerals. The varieties are Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah, which express themselves in all their strength and structure.
 
Pietraia
The Pietraia Zone most recently planted are rich in sand and minerals. They yield Syrah, Merlot, Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon where you can obtain structured wines that are ready to drink. There remains an old and traditional.
 
Montanare e Valecchie
The Montanare and Valecchie Zone are located on the slopes overlooking Umbria, where the central Apennines begin, and are located at an altitude of 500-600 meters above sea level. Pebbles and sand, mixed with silt and clay, make it ideal for Merlot, Syrah and Trebbiano. In the highest part of Valecchie, in addition to Sangiovese, Riccardo launched another great challenge in planting Pinot Noir. The cooler mountain temperatures and the relevant variation of temperature between day and night, guarantee something unique in concentration of perfumes and extreme elegance.
