Region: Toscana
Denomination: Toscana IGT


Grape: 50% Syrah – 50% Cabernet Sauvignon. 

Ageing: over 2 years in French oak barrel, one year in bottle.
Baracchi’s Masterpiece: the best from the colour of Syrah and longevity of Cabernet. Black pepper, toasty aromas of chocolate and vanilla. A complex, harmonious and well structured wine with smooth tannins and persistent fruity hints. Passionate and refine wine!


The Baracchi Estate is located on a beautiful slope just east of Cortona, under Tuscan Sun. Sangiovese, Syrah, Merlot, Cabernet and Trebbiano: these are the grapes which liven up Baracchi wines. A tribute to the land of Cortona and to the pleasure of the good wine. An invitation to taste the evolution of an ancient family tradition.


Wine pairing notes

The daring pairing in terms of food, beef and sea urchin, empowers an audacious match also in terms of wine matching. A bold red wine indeed, as the Baracchi’sArdito, firstly because this is not a Chinese traditional beef dish: there are no spices and acidities. The sea urchin? There is in Italy a strong tradition to eat them with red wine. In addition once cooked their have creamy texture and a musky flavour: the remaining sea tones give a natural tanginess to food. Medium body Ardito complements the dish with its pleasant acidity, it contrasts nicely the beef and its tasty filling, and its red fruits enrich the ingredients thanks also to its long spicy finish.

Wine pairing notes

An intense, spicy and complex dish that matches superbly with this Super Tuscan Ardito, which has a great length, tannicity and a vibrant flavour. The food and wine coupling is perfect not only in the taste but also for the aromas.
