Winemaker Notes

The color is deep straw tending toward gold, with an aroma which is intense and fruity with light notes of vanilla cream, tangerine, citrus and pineapple.

On the palate the wine is full-bodied and rich. Firm acidity and fresh with flavors of citrus zest, walnuts and a pleasant touch of toast on the finish.

Enjoy with hors d'oeuvres, first courses, all types of seafood, white meats with sauce, delicate red meats, roast veal and carpaccio.

Teruzzi & Puthod, , Italy
Teruzzi & Puthod
The life of restless Enrico Teruzzi is as unique as his wine. Born in one of Italy's most industralized, urban areas, near Milan, he found himself, at forty, in one of the most beautiful, historical, unpolluted regions, producing a superb, historical wine.

Eclectic and versatile, Enrico's interests have ranged from electromechanics to professional skiing. At twenty-eight, he married French born Carmen Puthod, prima donna of Milan's celebrated La Scala; at thirty, he was a father; at forty, a country gentleman in Tuscany; at forty-four, a hit.

In a way, being a newcomer in the wine world was instrumental to his success: Enrico started from square one, unburdened by prejudice and past mistakes; supported by expert advice at first, and by such classics as Gayon and Peynaud. He was actually one of the very first to introduce temperature control in Vernaccia di San Gimignano production, and his state-of-the-art technology soon set the pace in the appellation.

Today, he has achieved a perfect balance of depth and cleanliness; of fruit, complexity and barrique; of tradition and international appeal - and, thanks to his revolutionary, minimal temperature treatment of musts, exceptional continuity in quality, whatever the vintage.

Highly regarded for distinctive and age-worthy red wines, Rioja is Spain’s most celebrated wine region and also home to whites of equivalent quality but lesser renown. Made up of three different sub-regions of varying elevation—Rioja Alta, Rioja Alavesa, and Rioja Baja—wines are typically a blend of fruit from all three, although single-zone wines are beginning to gain in popularity. Rioja Alta, at the highest elevation, is considered to be the source of the brightest, most elegant fruit, while grapes from the warmer and drier Rioja Baja produce wines with deep color and high alcohol which mainly serve to add body to a blend. While fresh and fruity Riojas labeled “Joven” undergo minimal aging before release, a hallmark of more serious Rioja wines is the aroma and flavor of new oak—traditionally American, which imparts characteristics of dill, coconut, vanilla, and spice to the wine. Tighter-grained, subtler French oak, however, is becoming increasingly common. Crianza and Reserva styles are aged at least one year in oak, and Gran Reserva at least two, but in practice this maturation period is often quite a bit longer—up to about fifteen years.

Tempranillo provides the backbone of Rioja red wines, providing complex notes of red and black fruit, leather, and tobacco, while Garnacha supplies body and alcohol. In smaller percentages, Graciano and Mazuelo often serve as “seasoning” with additional flavors and aromas. These same varieties are responsible for flavorful dry rosés. White wines are made mostly from crisp, fresh Viura, which is usually blended with aromatic Malvasia and weighty Garnacha Blanca. White Rioja has traditionally been made in a nutty, oxidative style, though a bright, unoaked version is currently in vogue.

Tempranillo

View all wine

Notoriously food-friendly with soft tannins, modest alcohol, and bright acidity, Tempranillo is the star of Spain’s Rioja and Ribera del Duero regions. It is important throughout Spain as well as in Portugal, where it is known as Tinta Roriz and is an important component of Port wines and the table wines of the Douro region that Port calls home. California, Washington, and Oregon have all had moderate success with Tempranillo, producing a riper, more fruit-forward style of wine.

In the Glass

Tempranillo is often aged in new oak for the integration of spicy, woodsy, and herbal flavors, often with hints of vanilla, coconut, and dill. The grape itself produces medium-weight reds with bright red and black fruit aromas and hints of spice, leather, and tobacco, with no shortage of flavor.

Perfect Pairings

Tempranillo’s modest, fine-grained tannins and bright acidity make it extremely food friendly, pairing with a wide variety of Spanish-inspired dishes—especially grilled lamb chops, a rich chorizo and bean stew, or paella.

Sommelier Secret

The Spanish take their oak aging requirements very seriously, especially in Rioja. There, a system is in place to indicate on the label how much time the wine has spent in both barrel and bottle before release, which is helpful to the consumer trying to determine the style of an unfamiliar wine. Rioja can range from Joven (fresh, fruity, and unoaked) to Gran Reserva (complex and oxidized from extended barrel aging), with Crianza and Reserva in between.
