Terreno Bianco Professore IGT

Our white prestige wine is a Tuscan flirt with France.

The name of this wine indicates where the grapes grow. Bianco Professore is made with grapes from a special vineyard here on the estate, adjacent to our friend and neighbour, il Professore.

An analysis showed that the soil in this specific vineyard resembled that of the southern Rhône valley in France, which led us to plant grape varieties that are not typical of our area.

Tell us about how Bianco Professore was born.
The idea was to make an ambitious white wine, aged in oak barrels and with great ageing potential, uncommon for Tuscany and very unusual for the Chianti Classico area. It is a field blend i.e it is made with grapes all growing in one specific area of the vineyard. There is a variety of vines planted so the mixing is done in the vineyard and not as usual in the wine cellar. An analysis in 2006 showed that the soil resembled that of the southern Rhône valley in France. This led us to plant grape varieties that are not typical of our area, such as Rousanne and Petit Manseng.

What kind of a wine is it?
It is a wine with a special character that comes partly from the soil, partly from the actual grape varieties and partly from fermentation in oak barrels. A powerful white wine with smooth buttery notes balanced with a crisp freshness.

How is it best enjoyed?
On a terrace overlooking the Tuscan hills.

What does it pair with?
Bianco Professore pairs well with fish in creamy sauce but powerful enough also for white meet such as chicken and pork. The wine’s buttery character and fresh acidity can also be excellently matched with gnocchi with butter and sage. It is also suitable for cheese such as La Tur or Pecorino.
