Antinori Teruzzi & Puthod Vernaccia di San Gimignano 2013

External Review by Palm Bay International:

The towered medieval town of San Gimignano is a place of beauty and tranquility; ancient, ivory-white, stone buildings set in the gently rolling Tuscan countryside. One of Italy’s most historic winemaking sites, the fame of its white wines is as old as the city itself. In modern times it was husband and wife, Enrico Teruzzi and Carmen Puthod, who pioneered the area’s winemaking renaissance, leading a quality revolution with avant-garde methods of vinification, the art of aging wine and the blending of indigenous and international varietals. The Teruzzi & Puthod winery was founded in 1974 with the mission of producing high quality wines, thus improving the standard of this unique territory, rich in winemaking history and tradition. The estate covers a sizable 445 acres with 232 acres planted with vineyards. 148 acres are dedicated to Vernaccia, making Teruzzi & Puthod the largest privately owned estate cultivating this grape variety. For years, Teruzzi & Puthod has been part of “Global Quality,” an environmentally-friendly project that avoids the use of products which, while permitted, are not particularly beneficial for the environment. Most recently, famed winemaker Carlo Ferrini has come on board as the consulting winemaker. Carlo has won “Winemaker of the Year” from both Gambero Rosso and the Italian Sommeliers Association. Production Area San Gimignano, Tuscany, Italy. Appellation: Vernaccia di San Gimignano DOCG Grape Varieties 100% Vernaccia. Vinification Grapes are harvested in late September to early October and are softly crushed before temperature-controlled fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks. After fermentation, the wine is bottled and released. Color Straw yellow. Bouquet Intense aromas of zesty citrus fruits, flowers and a touch of mint. Taste A well-balanced wine with pleasant acidity and flavors of green apples and lemon with notes of almond on the finish. Serving Suggestions Excellent as an aperitif or with cheeses, grilled fish, sushi and roasted white meats.
