The Baracchi Winery is located inside of the property of Il Falconiere. Riccardo strongly desired to continue the family tradition of grape growing and wine-making, which began on the 1860 adding now a modern and high quality character. Riccardo’s philosophy is : to make a great and outstanding wine it means to work hardly in the vineyards. A tribute to the land of Cortona and to the pleasure of the good wine: Wine Spectator Ardito’06 scored 95 points – Smeriglio ’07 Sangiovese 90 points – Smeriglio ’07 Merlot 89 points.
Each of the 22 bedrooms and suites at Il Falconiere is decorated individually and has amazing views over the vineyards and the olive groves. The simple combination of antique furnishings, magnificent fabrics and modern and traditional textiles creates a scene of timeless elegance and comfort.
