Collazzone - Cantina Baldassarri
The Farm Baldassarri arises from the passion and the entrepreneurial ability of Luciano Baldassari and his sons.
The Farm is consisting of 10 hectares of vineyard: the principal varietals are: Grechetto, Merlot, Sangiovese and Sagrantino. In 2005 a winery of a capacity of 2.000 hl was built in order to make wine of their own grapes and producing wines to release whether loose, in their own sales outlets, or bottled for catering or wine shops.
Regarding the wine-growing plan the Farm Baldassarri can aim at the following characteristics:
Low production per vine and high planting densities so as to produce quality grapes and at the same time to keep an average output;
Working on the leaves when green: topping, defoliation and thinning of the bunches when necessary;
The harvest is decided in a very accurate way, it is well-timed, divided in varietals and if necessary, graded harvests of every single vineyard.
In 2005 in the Farm there was planted about other 5 hectars, in particular international varietals to complete the range of the produced wines.
The winery is equipped with the most modern enological equipments. Let us briefly see the strength of the Winery Baldassari on the tecnical-enological plan.
The red grapes are conveyed in wine-makers of stainless steel directly by gravity being placed, a level under the establishment used for the draining of the grapes. This allows a minor attrition and a minor production of lees.
The racking occurs by the use of trucks and belt elevators and not by pomps and gears. This way the fermented grape marcs go through a softner treatment and there is a minor production of lees.
In the vinification for the white wine, the juice that pours out from the pneumatic press becomes clear naturally and in a static way inside tanks with cooling belt, completely insulated. This allows a minor oxygenation of the product and a better decantation at a controlled temperature, avoiding this way to start an undesired fermentation.
Being cold and hot in all tanks, in the winery and iside the establishment for the bottle again and packaging, allows it to keep constant the desired temperature all year round.
