Querciabella - Turpino - Toscana IGT

€35.00

Turpino is a newer wine to the Querciabella portfolio with the first vintage in 2007. The grapes come from two vineyards: Ruffoli, which is the disintegration of quartz and feldspar sandstone produces deep and loose soil with sandy silt and strong presence of large stones, and Banditella, which contains a mixture of silt and alluvial sand with areas of gravel and surface pebbles that can be traced back to the Pleistocene.

As with all Querciabella wines, elegance and finesse trump muscle in Turpino – whose lifted aromas of violets and wild berries, and youthful ruby color, lead the way to delicate purity of fruit, roundness and depth, accompanied by fine and silky tannins. The name Turpino – like Palafreno and Mongrana which precede this wine in the Querciabella range – pays homage to Orlando Furioso, a 16th century Italian epic poem by Ludovico Ariosto.

94 points, The Wine Spectator: “Enticing aromas and flavors of cherry, leather, licorice and mineral are the hallmarks of this polished, intense red. Beautifully balanced, but requires a little more time for the dense tannins to soften. Shows terrific length and a complex aftertaste. Cabernet Franc, Syrah and Merlot.”
