Turpino’s evocative character is a tribute to three noble varieties that thrive in Maremma, fitting together like the tessera of a fine mosaic.

Turpino is Maremma’s rise to the Super Tuscan challenge, a voluptuous blend of Cabernet Franc, Syrah and Merlot finely crafted by Querciabella.

Following in the footsteps of Camartina and Palafreno, the first Turpino bottling was made in 2007 but never released, using Maremma-borne fruit with the addition of grapes usually destined for our top cuvées. Since the inaugural vintage of 2010 – and what a great year that was! – we have gradually let the Mediterranean nature of this wine shine through and, in 2017, we finally eliminated the grapes from Chianti from the blend, giving rise to Querciabella’s original Super Coastal.

Elegance trumps muscles in Turpino 2019, one in six great vintages released so far and the second entirely produced in Maremma. Nicely light on its feet, it represents the coastal finesse at its most exciting. James Suckling praises it for its ripe flavours as well as its firm texture; for Antonio Galloni its vibrancy holds quite a bit of appeal.

With its dense flavour profile and silky tannin mouthfeel, Tupino manages to be both generous and restrained at the same time. Fermentation in wooden vats and barrel ageing confers a gentleness to the spicy balsamic notes of the grape blend, a fine frame and a beguiling length of finish, making it a great food-friendly wine.

No animal products or byproducts are used in the production of this wine, making it suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
