A Complex Vernaccia from a 3-hectare Vineyard
Made from Vernaccia di San Gimignano grapes exclusively grown in the 3-hectare vineyard of Sant'Elena near the hamlet of Racciano, 350 meters asl, with deep, loose-textured, mostly clayey soils. This selection is released approximately two years after harvesting, after an extended period on fine lees.
The wine releases all of the varietal’s potential. To the nose, it is intense and complex, with a broad, multifaceted aromatic spectrum. Hints of white flowers and citrus fruit blend perfectly with the mineral notes typical of this varietal, primarily flint. Olfactory complexity is achieved thanks to extensive aging on fine lees. The taste is complex, enveloping, with a nice intensity. The flavors blend in perfect harmony, combining fullness and fresh vibrancy, with a long, taut and bright finish, and a hint of almond

STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
The winery was established in 1974 in the shadow of the towers of San Gimignano by Enrico Teruzi and his wife Carmen, they have 94 hectares of vines of which 60 are Vernaccia. The Teruzzi estate in San Gimignano stands heads and shoulders above the rest. This pioneering producer helped to usher this region’s historic Vernaccia di San Gimignano wines into modern times, and today is the indisputable benchmark against which all other Vernaccia wines are judged.
