Winemaker Notes

The aroma well structured, but also pleasant and straightforward. Although it is a wine that can be consumed right away, it can be kept for years of ageing. Therra 2011 is a wine of great power and of intense ruby red color with purple highlights and black, persistent notes of coffee, cream, cocoa, licorice, jam berries, black cherry, vanilla and balsamic sensations.

James Suckling
A round, juicy red with blueberry, fresh mushroom and flint. Full body with lovely fruit and a flavorful finish. Needs another two years to soften. Montepulciano, sangiovese, merlot and cabernet franc.

Podernuovo a Palazzone, Tuscany, Italy
Image of winery
Podernuovo a Palazzone is a new wine estate in Southern Tuscany, close to San Casciano dei Bagni, at the border to Lazlo and Umbria. The estate expands over 20 hectares including Sangiovese, Montepulciano, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot vines. It is managed by Giovanni Bulgari, the successor to the famed jewelry dynasty.

Developed with respect for the terroir of Tuscany, the goal of PoderNuovo a Palazzone is to not only produce beautiful wines but also healthy products helping to preserve the culture and landscape of the region.

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, Sangiovese makes up a significant percentage of plantings here, with the white Trebbiano Toscano coming in second.

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, scattered with vineyards.

Sangiovese at its simplest produces straightforward pizza-friendly wines with bright and juicy red fruit, but at its best it shows remarkable complexity and ageability. 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 expresses well the particularities of vintage variations and is thus popular among collectors. 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, Carmignano and the island of Elba.

Other Red Blends

With hundreds of red 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 enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. 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.
