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.

Blend of Cabernet Franc, Syrah and Merlot.

Ratings & Reviews

92 Points - James Suckling:
"Lots of pretty and aromatic fruit in this red yet it remains refined and polished. Full body, with a dense mouthfeel but is fresh and very clean. Made from organically grown grapes. Made from Cabernet Franc, Syrah and Merlot"

91 Points - Wine Spectator:
"Driven by a lively structure, this rich red exhibits cherry and plum flavors that show a touch of leather, tobacco and dried herbs. This stays persistent and long, tightening up on the dense finish. Drink now through 2018."
