The 6 small plots of vineyards, all located on the cru Montosoli, are adjacent to each other so that you can define them as a single body of a total of 5 hectares. Colombaio is the only Farm, among those present on the Montosoli hill, to have vineyards solely in this area, a defining feature for the definition of typical wine and its relevance to the territory in which it is born.
The orientation south / south-east of the rows of vines and their perfect exposure to sunlight throughout the day allows optimal ripeness of the grapes and is helped by a good temperature range with night temperatures cooler than other parts of Montalcino.
In the vineyards, mechanical and manual work call for considerable energy and hard work in order to avoid the use of herbicides and to implement all that is required to give the best care possible to the vines and the grapes. This is the fruit of 80 years of experience and knowledge gained from generations of Baricci in the land of Montalcino.
A good wine comes from, above all, a great, wise and patient work in the vineyard, not just in the wine cellar and as grandfather Nello says “what you receive from the earth comes from all that you gave to the earth” and we can not argue with him on that.
