Baldetti Alfonso

||

The wines of Baldetti Alfonso are produced in Petraia, among the wines produced the Crano Cortona DOC Syrah, the Piet Rosé IGT Toscana Rosato and many others.

The Baldetti Alfonso company has its headquarters in Pietraia in the municipality of Cortona, in the province of Arezzo, on the border between Tuscany and Umbria, a few kilometers from Lake Trasimeno, in a suggestive context where the gaze is lost on the horizon up to to meet the peaks of Monte Amiata. For a few decades the vine that has taken hold and that now distinguishes this area of ​​the Val di Chiana, located in the inner part of the pre-Apennine Tuscany, is Syrah, which has found its ideal habitat here.

But the presence of the French grape is a recent history, in fact in the Val di Chiana for a long time Trebbiano and other white berried grapes cultivated for the production of Bianco della Val di Chiana were the most worked grapes. But the tradition is never set aside by a good winemaker, and the Baldetti Alfonso winery, which uses grapes of: Chardonnay, Syrah, Sangiovese, Merlot, Grechetto, Trebbiano and Malvasia to work its wines, from these last three produces an excellent Vin Santo, while the Syrah grapes are used for his workhorse the Cortona Doc Syrah Crano.

But let’s take a step back, if the company can boast an essential but valuable production today, it is thanks to all the work done in this half century of activity, which since the early 70s, when Mario Baldetti was at the management , the father of the current owner, started the total renovation of the existing vineyards for a more important production.

Bases on which his son Alfonso Baldetti was able to continue a work increasingly marked by quality and passion, which are instead the basic concepts of his corporate philosophy, bringing it with the advent of the Cortona Doc from 2000, again to the renewal of the vineyards, to then create wines such as the Marius Cortona Doc Sangiovese, in addition to the construction of the new winery, between 2010 and 2012, respecting the most up-to-date viticultural techniques.

It can be said that today the Baldetti Alfonso winery is a highly respected Cortonese wine company which, thanks to the daily commitment of all the members of the family and a group of valid collaborators, is able to make Baldetti wines express their best, all their character.cantina

Wines that take identity from the vineyards located, on 15 hectares, at an altitude of about 300m above sea level, mainly composed of clay, sand and silt, as well as the right hydro-thermal balance and the proximity of the hills and Lake Trasimeno, which they guarantee a very particular micro-climate, creating the optimal conditions for the perfect ripening and processing of the grapes.baldetti alfonso2

The line of Baldetti Alfonso wines is minimal and characterized by modern and elegant labels, of great interest the Crano Cortona DOC Syrah, enveloping and with a thick and silky tannic texture of great finesse and an eloquent nose that spreads suggestions of ripe and wild berries intense spicy notes, or Piet Rosé IGT Toscana Rosato, a dynamic wine that expertly combines, in a very modern way, structure and drinkability, with a savory mineral palate and floral aromas and small red fruits.

But all the wines of this company are to be discovered and, like the Baldetti family and the people who carry on with their work, are strongly linked to Tuscany and in particular to the territory of Cortona, a love for the land, handed down by generation to generation, with great attention to new trends. It should be noted that the company also produces an excellent Extra Virgin Olive Oil: Poggiobarullo.
