Winemaker Notes

The wine is blend of two white varieties: Vermentino, the classic white grape of Tuscany; and Chardonnay. Straw yellow color. Ripened pears and apples on the nose, with a mineral component and a spicy note. On the palate it is fine, elegant, savory, harmonious, with the bright acidity and the structure that recalls its Tuscan origin.

Mazzoni, Tuscany, Italy
Two of the greatest winemaking families, two of the world's most prolific grapes, and one wine. The first release of Mazzoni - the fruit of a partnership between the Franceschi (Montalcino) and Terlato (Napa) families - marks a historic collaboration between two of the greatest names in winemaking today. The families' relationship began more than 30 years ago, when the Terlato family began importing Franceschi's historic Brunello di Montalcino from Italy - one of Italy's most coveted and collected wines, made from 100% Sangiovese, the quintessential Tuscan grape. Long considered one of the top producers of Napa Valley Merlot, Terlato has now joined with the iconic Franceschi family to produce a classic, elegant Super Tuscan - a blend of Merlot and Sangiovese grown in Montalcino, combining state-of-the-art winemaking technology with Old World terroir and tradition.

Passion for quality, respect for tradition, and a steadfast belief in innovation are the principles that led to the birth of this extraordinary Super Tuscan: a hand-crafted wine, blended using estate-grown Merlot and Sangiovese sourced from one of the Franceschi's oldest vineyards in Montalcino, and vinified using the same winemaking technology that has made Napa Valley one of the greatest producers of world-class Merlot. Mazzoni represents a supreme marriage of Old and New World winemaking, guided by shared family values and a desire to create a superior wine - to drink today and tommorrow.

One of the most iconic Italian regions for wine, scenery, and history, Tuscany is the world’s most important outpost for the Sangiovese grape. Ranging in style from fruity and simple to complex and age-worthy, as well as in price from budget-friendly to ultra-premium, Sangiovese makes up a significant percentage of plantings here, with the white Trebbiano Toscano trailing far behind.

Within Tuscany, many esteemed wines have their own respective sub-zones, including Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino, and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. The climate is Mediterranean and the topography consists mostly of picturesque rolling hills, perfect for Sangiovese as it ripens most efficiently on slopes with maximum exposure to sunlight.

Sangiovese at its simplest produces straightforward pizza-friendly wines with bright red fruit and not much more, but at its best it shows remarkable complexity. Top-quality Sangiovese-based wines can be expressive of a range of characteristics such as sour cherry, balsamic, dried herbs, leather, fresh earth, dried flowers, anise and tobacco. Brunello in particular is sensitive to vintage variation, performing best in years that are not too hot and not too cold. Chianti is associated with tangy and food-friendly dry wines at various price points. A more recent phenomenon as of the 1970s is the “Super Tuscan”—a wine made from international grape varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Syrah, with or without Sangiovese. These are common in Tuscany’s coastal regions like Bolgheri, Val di Cornia, the island of Elba and more inland, in Carmignano.

Other White Blends

With hundreds of white grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
