HISTORY AND COMPANY

Teruzzi is a company founded over 40 years ago, more precisely in 1974, set in a spectacular landscape: the gentle slopes of San Gimignano in Tuscany. Right from the start its founders' goal was to produce high quality wines, favoring autochthonous grape varieties with full respect for the history and local wine making tradition. Currently the company occupies about 180 hectares of which 94 are represented by the most precious resource, namely the vineyard. According to data recently collected, 60 hectares are planted with vines in Vernaccia, this guarantees Teruzzi the primacy of a private company with the largest Vernaccia grape vineyard in the world. Obviously the company is part of the 77 producers of Vernaccia di San Gimignano, to which the eponymous Consortium belongs, which aims to enhance and promote research and development of its products. After all, the city is closely linked to the world of wine, frescoes, paintings and tapestries scattered everywhere in the town, dating back to medieval times, bear witness to this. From an enotechnical point of view, the company expects a great plant density, equal to about 6600 vines per hectare. The purpose of this crowding is certainly to be sought in the objective of high quality of the final product, precisely grapes. A higher density in fact allows a smaller quantity of raw material per single vine, thus concentrating the substances inside the berry which will subsequently guarantee wines with the highest quality standards. The red vineyards (about 21 hectares) are composed of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Alicante and Colorino. As for the whites, in addition to the aforementioned Vernaccia, we find Trebbiano Toscano and the international Chardonnay and Sauvignon.
