Enrico Teruzzi is a leading figure of the wine scene, announces the Italian professional medium Gambero Rosso about the vineyard owner from Tuscany. With more than eighty hectares of vineyards, presumably most of the cultivation area of San Gimignano belongs to him.
The former racing driver and Jockey is a dazzling personality. In 1974 he arrived in Tuscany with his wife Carmen and son Angelo Peperino. Before, Carmen Puthod used to be a prima ballerina in the Milan Scala. Together they established a winery and became well-known for their use of modern oenologic technologies. Teruzzi & Puthod always strive to improve the quality of their wines.
Red cuvée Teruzzi & Puthod Peperino Toscana IGT, here in an impressive Magnum version, became famous all around the world. In the glass it appears in a brilliant ruby-red colour. Its bouquet is delightfully intensive, smelling of blackberries and cherries, as well as spices and floral notes such as violets. There also is a pleasant wooden mark which is well connected with the fine fruit. In the mouth, this charming Tuscan is equally distinctive and generous, with perfectly integrated tannins and an ever lasting finish.
