Vintages Wine Panel: In 1974, Enrico Teruzzi and his wife Carmen Puthod knew little about wine when they purchased a one hectare vineyard in Tuscany’s only white DOCG, Vernaccia di San Gimignano. With no links to regional traditions, they were able to produce a fresh take on this trademark white wine. Teruzzi was the first to introduce the use of stainless steel, temperature-controlled vats here. Today, the company controls 180 hectares, 91 of which are under vine. Expect a racy, whistling clean and refreshing aperitif wine. My note: Pure, vigorous notes of white grapefruit, lime and green apples in a simple, refreshing sipper. Terrific acidity for food. Light- to medium-bodied.

Vernaccia S. Gimignano food pairings: salads, vegetarian dishes, asparagus, sushi, brushetta.

Adam Bekhor rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

My “something new” comes in the form of a crisp white wine from Italy. The 2007 Teruzzi & Puthod Vernaccia di San Gimignano is a light white wine with good acidity and flavours of citrus and slate. This would be a great aperitif or would go very well with seafood. At $15.95, there is no excuse not to try this wine. I think you will be pleasantly surprised by what you find.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
