Isola Bianca’s labels figures rabbit and dog assassins, a typical example of drolleries, bizarre figures that appeared and decorated the margins and initials of illuminated manuscripts in the Gothic period. Harmless creatures become hunters, warriors and even vindictive torturers holding spears, axes and swords with the dexterity of knights: An upside-down world that was largely popular in the XIII and XIV centuries and that was also a tribute to the amanuenses’ ironic mind.
Smarža un garša: This wine has fruited and mineral notes typical of this varieties. The taste is pleasant and complex, with an excellent balance between acidity, structure and persistency, and in which alternating floral and citrus notes highlight the most authentic qualities of the kind

About Teruzzi: Past, present and future coexist at Teruzzi: a state-of-the-art winery, constantly exploring the most innovative solutions to produce the best wines, while respectful of the local heritage and the Tuscan vine and wine tradition. Teruzzi’s pioneering role, its study of avant-garde methods, rigor and stylistic simplicity go hand in hand with the search for processes that yield personal, authentic wines, full-flavored and expressing the characteristics of their place of origin. Originality, innovation and historical continuity with tradition: this is the Teruzzi style. The logo and the labels pay homage to the Middle Ages, the age of city-states, which was also the time of peak development of a thriving San Gimignano – no dark age, but a time of great human and spiritual evolution, when rationality and irrationality, wonder and deceit, unrest and disbelief merged together.
In 2016, the estate and winery were taken over by Terra Moretti, the holding owned by the Moretti family. The family business is managed by a beautiful and talented Francesca Moretti.
