Our small Bargagna chapel next to Terre di Baccio offers a unique setting for tasting our locally produced wines: a Chianti Classico DOCG, a Chianti Classico Reserve DOCG, and a small selection of IGT wines.
Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG
Our Reserve is the maximum expression of our wine; a 12 month period in small wood barrels is followed by another period of ageing in the bottle, this is a full-bodied wine ideal to accompany red meats, game and all forms of seasoned cheeses.
Terre di Baccio
Vino IGT Toscana
This wine is made of a blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes, all grown in our estate. Production is followed by a 13 to 14 month period of ageing in oak barriques, and another 4 months in the bottle. It is a full-bodied and persistent red wine, ideal for important occasions.
Chianti Classico DOCG
A perfect balance of traditional characteristics, the very name “Schietto” alludes to our wine’s simplicity and candidness.
Obtained from a blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon varietals, this wine is made in strict observation of DOCG regulations: aged in small barrels for 6 months, it is bodiful yet fruity, and ideal to accompany the many dishes of Tuscan tradition, and particularly meat stews and roasts.
Vin Santo Chianti Classico
Sweet and almost syrupy, Vin Santo is a wine with a long tradition in Tuscany.
Made from Trebbiano and Malvasia grapes that have been semi-dried in racks, these are then pressed and left to refine for a minimum of three years in traditional caratelli, small wood barrels.
Vin Santo typically accompanies traditional cantucci (almond) biscuits, or indeed any dessert.
A soft and velvety wine: Schietto Rosato is made of a blend of Sangiovese e Merlot grapes; the grapes are briefly macerated, then fermented and refined in steel barrels. The resulting rosato wine is light and fruity, perfect to accompany an aperitivo or any delicate dishes.
Vernaccia di San Gimignano DOCG
Vernaccia di San Gimignano was the first Italian wine to attain the D.O.C.G. denomination.
The wine is fermented and refined in steel barrels; the result is a dry white wine, fruity on the nose, excellent to accompany white meats and antipasti – and a great wine to drink in the company of friends!
Our farm products
Terre di Baccio also produces an excellent, organic extra virgin olive oil , made from the olives harvested directly in the estate.
We also grow and produce an organic Chianti saffron .
Both products can be sampled and purchased, along with our wines, in our adjacent chapel, Cappella del Bargagna
Terre di Baccio’s Chianti Saffron has been cultivated in the Chianti hills since the Late Middle Ages. The saffron flowers must be harvested by hand in dry Autumn days, in the early morning. The stigma is then extracted and lightly toasted, so as to preserve its characteristic scent and colour.
Our Chianti saffron is an ideal ingredient for a saffron risotto, a frittata, and to bake cakes and biscuits. It can also be used to make a delicious gelato!
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Our olives are harvested by hand from the secular olive trees in the estate. Terre di Baccio produces three varietals: frantoio, moraiolo and leccino, which are cold pressed and blended to produce a spicy and fruity extra virgin olive oil.
Tasting our olive oil is best done “raw”, by simply drizzling it over a roasted slice of bread (“fettunta”), or over raw vegetables (which you may also dip directly in the olive oil, famously called “pinzimonio”), on a salad, or indeed over any Tuscan dish to exalt its traditional flavours – such as a ribollita or a papa al pomodoro.
