Excellent wine tasting. Baldetti is a local manufacturer of wine processing and bottling equipment so this is a showcase both for their skill at wine making and their machinery. Not a very old vineyard but some nice wines. Especially the 2012 Marius Cortona DOC Sangiovese and the 2003 Leopoldo Cortona DOC Vin Santo (dessert wine)

About Winery and Wines

The name BALDETTI is strongly linked to Tuscany and in particular to the territory of Cortona and the love for the land, handed down from generation to generation, has always been a firm point for the family.
Viticulture, which in the company already covered an important activity, starting from the late 60s had a strong impulse when Mario Baldetti, father of the current tenant, carried out the total renovation of the existing vineyards. Vinification took place in the company cellar which was equipped with modern technology (for the time). The wine produced was then sold to merchants until, in the early 70s, the ``Bianco Vergine della Valdichiana`` DOC was born, which also marked the beginning of the production of bottled wine.

Since 2000, in conjunction with the birth of the new DOC CORTONA, the company has renewed the vineyards in compliance with the most up-to-date wine-growing technique, focusing above all on Syrah which over the years would have become the reference grape for all the producers in the area.

2012 marked a fundamental year for the family, in fact the works for the creation of the new winery were completed, also in Località Pietraia, strongly desired by Alfonso Baldetti and his two sons Daniele and Gian Luca, who in the meantime joined the 'Company thus creating the conditions for a rosy future full of satisfactions.

The wines that are produced all have the same importance given the commitment and love that are put into each single grape, however it is normal that if we talk about Cortona, Syrah immediately comes to mind and it is precisely Cortona Doc Syrah ``Crano ”The company's flagship wine.

QUALITY include all the chain of production: it start from vineyards, where there is a steady work without compromises, passing in the cellar, where knowledge and technology enable wines to maintain and proclaim all features of grapes.

Quality means: ambition, care, reliability, expertise, coordination, creativity…more and more.. and PASSION: with the magic power to change the strong work of every day in something of charming and exciting, elements to aim at big results.
