Terre di Tufi’s label shows an unusual dog shown in an illuminated manuscript that is kept in the British library. This work of fiction shows blue webbed feet and wears an atypical cape. Terre di Tufi is an elegant and fascinating wine that reflects Teruzzi’s dedication to viticulture and the winemaking. Known as “White Supertuscan” for its unique qualities, it is considered the white version of the famous and well-appreciated red Tuscan wines made from grapes that come from indigenous and international wine varieties.
Smell and taste: This wine presents an intense and persistent fragrance, a pleasant taste, and a good complexity and balance. Fruity notes harmoniously blend with lightly toasted wood notes, and the result is a remarkable wine with high acidity and a great flavor.
Serving suggestions: White fish
Serve at: Chilled
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.
