Cultivated wine but not a bit out of the ordinary. Teruzzi's Terre di Tufi Toscana IGT reflects the passion for innovation and high quality in harmony with the tradition of Tuscan white wines. Teruzzi combined indigenous grape varieties with international grape varieties and were thus the creators of the first "White Supertuscan".
The elegant, enchanting Tuscan white wine Terre di Tufi is luminous, with intense straw yellow colour in the glass. On the nose an intense, rich bouquet unfolds with fragrances of quinces, apples, complex and long-lasting, in the background a pleasant woody note resonates. On the palate, the Terre di Tufi shows its flavour potential. Strong body, soft, full-bodied, pronounced character without having an aggressive effect, delicate roasted aromas in a long-lasting, sustainable finish.
Vinification of Teruzzi Terre the Tufi
The wine is made from carefully selected grapes from Vernaccia di San Gimignano, Chardonnay and Sauvignon, which grow on the estate's vineyards around San Gimignano, the city of a thousand towers, in the heart of Tuscany. After manual harvesting, the grapes are gently pressed and fermented at a controlled temperature with selected yeasts in the stainless steel tank. The wine is then aged for about 4 to 5 months in barriques, 30% of which are new barrels and the rest in the second run. This gives the Terre di Tufi its soft, supple body and harmonious fullness.
