Vinsanto Baruffo

Vinsanto on the table is tradition.

Vinsanto at the end of the meal is… a kiss.

Vinsanto is a sweet finish

Paired with the traditional Cantuccini Biscuits is a sip of sweetness that you need to try one time in your life.

If you love cheese, it is a perfect food paring to share with your friend or your family.

Strong Cheese like Pecorino cheese, blu cheese, Goat cheese.

Remeber: Persistence of the wine and the persistence of the food need to be well balanced!

Try it at home! Vinsanto Baruffo!

The T-Bone Steak and our Chianti Classico

195/5000 When you arrive in the territory of the Chianti Classico we always remember an image that everybody love… the Florentine Steak accompanied by a glass of Chianti Classico!

You can found in each Restaurant of this area!

It’s necessary to have the T Bone Steak in the menu in a restaurant!

The T-Bone Steak have another name “Under three fingers it’s Carpaccio” because it is very high and so juicy!
You can pair it with our Chianti Classico Baruffo!

But how this Chianti Classico can be perfect with the T Bone Steak?

The T Bone Steak is famous to be rich of Sauce, rich of taste… and it’s normal to accompain it with a sip of our Extra Virgin Olive oil! It’s so yummy!

It’s necessary to have an acid wine and rich in tannins to “wash” our palate. The meat is rich of fatness so we need a wine that could help us!

Our Chianti Classico Baruffo it’s perfect! Try it at home and you will be… Surprised!

5 Tips for a good wine tasting!

Here some tips to have a perfect wine tasting!

There are some rules to respect to face a tasting and enjoy it as well as possible!

  1. Tasting in the Morning! We talk about lucidity. In the morning we are in full focus and it will be much easier to concentrate on the characteristics of the wine that we have in the glass!
  2. No Coffee! No Cigarettes! It is a good rule not to smoke and do not drink coffee before a tasting! The coffee will leave a bitter taste in your mouth that will influence the olfactory taste sensations of your wine! Same for smoking!
  3. No Spicy food!

    If you are eating and you have a bottle of wine to enjoy, it would be better to avoid spicy foods.

  4. Taste it! But in moderation … After some tastings our palate remains a little “neutralized”, in practice the alcohol starts to circulate in our body. For this reason it is a good rule to use Sputavino  that will help you to better face more tastings! So simply tastes and… spits!

  5. Between each taste of wine, take another sip… of water! It will be the best strategy to clean up our mouth from the wine we had just tasted!

Taste it with moderation!

Taste our products with us!

We are waiting for you in our winery to have a tasting with us!

Visit our website www.cantalici.it and choose the one that’s right for you!

Wine’s Temperature!

Each wine have the perfect temperature,

We will help you to organize as well as possible the temperature for each wine that you have!

If we talk about a white wine and a Rosé wine we talk about a temperature that varies from 8 to 10 degrees. For a mature or well-structured white, it also speaks of 11/12 degrees!

Red wines have a special temperature…

Remember that the temperature depends by the structure of the wine!

Young red wines need to be served between 12 and 14 degrees!

Red wines of medium structure and tannins (Our Chianti Classico Baruffo and Cantalici) 16/18 degrees.

The red wines with great structure (the Chianti Classico Riserva Baruffo, Messer Ridolfo, the Cantalici Gran Selezione and the Tangano) require a temperature of 18 degrees.

Don’t be afraid… it’s so easy! The next time you have friends at dinner you will not make a bad impression … and the wine will thank you!

Advanced Bread? Don’t throw it away!

The Tuscan bread … strictly unsalted is the indispensable ingredient for one of the most traditional recipes of the region: The Bread Soup!

It is normal to have some leftover bread during the week.

Many people throw it, now hard, dry and impossible to reuse during meals …

In Tuscany you never throw away, even as soon as we see those small pieces of bread advanced comes to mind just one rececipt… BREAD SOUP!

A delicious and simple recipe to prepare!

Thanks to this poor Tuscan recipe, our grandparents managed to feed entire families thanks to that bread that went on during the days.

With the addition of cabbage, beans and carrots … this dish is famous throughout Tuscany and there is no restaurant that does not propose it in the menu!

Salt, pepper and finally a string of strictly Tuscan Extra Virgin Olive Oil to give it that bitter and slightly spicy note.

A bottle of red wine, our IGT Petali Rosso 100% Sangiovese will perfectly accompany this dish and thanks to its acidity will remove the greasiness of the dish to make each bite more appetizing than the previous one!


For those wishing to try to revive the recipe, no one forbids making changes!

Some add us the potatoes, who prefers a bit of dried tomatoes ..

Try it at home too! Have fun and … Buon Appetito!

Valentine’s Day… Have fun TOGETHER!
