"Isola Bianca" Vernaccia San Giminiano DOCG 2021 - Teruzzi

Let's start with a curiosity. On the label (which is, by the way, very beautiful) of this Isola Bianca, there is an unusual killer bunny. It is an unusual and grotesque image that appears on ancient illuminated manuscripts. Harmless little beasts that turn into dangerous tormentors, wielding weapons with the dexterity of knights. A sort of upside-down world, very much in vogue between the 13th and 16th centuries, and a tribute to the irony of the amanuensis friars. This wine represents the synthesis of the large vineyard owned by Teruzzi. The grapes used to produce it, in fact, Vernaccia di San Gimignano in purity, come from both the Racciano and Ponte Rondolino areas, from vines of various ages, from 8 to 15 years old. Vinified and aged exclusively in steel, the result is a fresh and graceful wine. Straw yellow of beautiful intensity, the nose has fruity notes, well integrated with mineral hints typical of the vine. The taste is pleasant, of good complexity, with an excellent balance between acidity, structure and persistence, in which the floral notes alternate with citrus notes, thus enhancing the most authentic and luminous characteristics of the type. Just as typical is its slightly bitter finish. A wine of excellent drinkability.

Teruzzi & Puthod, founded in 1974, is the most important company in the San Gimignano area of Tuscany. It was founded by Enrico Teruzzi, an engineer by profession but a winemaker by vocation, with the help of his wife Carmen Puthod. We find ourselves in the enchanting scenery of the Tuscan hills, in the shadow of the characteristic towers and the centuries-old history of San Gimignano. After all, the link with the territory and the enhancement of Vernaccia are the two cornerstones on which, for over half a century, the company's philosophy has been based. A winery that has always been at the forefront in the search for the most innovative solutions to produce the best wines, respecting the territory and the Tuscan winemaking tradition. Today the company can count on a total of 62 hectares of Vernaccia vineyards, boasting the largest extension dedicated to this renowned grape variety. Overall, however, Teruzzi covers an area of approximately 180 hectares, 96 of which are planted with vines. Spread over 4 macro plots, the Teruzzi properties are a guarantee of variety in terms of soils, altitudes, slopes and microclimates. A kaleidoscope of areas and sub-areas, plots and vineyards, capable of imprinting their mark on the wines, thanks also to the proximity of the Tyrrhenian Sea. In 2016 Teruzzi was acquired by Terra Moretti, the holding company of the Moretti family. Since then, the entire agronomic activity has been considerably modernised. No more chemical fertilisers, no more residual weeding, a 50% reduction in the use of pesticides and the redistribution in the vineyards, after a natural composting process, of the waste from the processing of marc and stalks. These, in short, are just some of the important changes made in the company. In order to continue to innovate, producing great wines and increasingly reducing its impact on the environment.
