About Paterna il Terraio Bianco Toscano

Paterna il Terraio Bianco Toscano is a blend of Malvasia and Trebbiano with a skosh of Orpicchio. Grapes are hand-harvested, pressed, and fermented at low temperatures using native yeasts. 80% no skin fermentation, 20% skin maceration. Both parts are blended and matured in stainless steel tanks. Bottled unfined, unfiltered with low sulfur levels. We call this a “baby” orange. Aromas and flavors of wild honey, mandarin orange, and white pepper. Chewy tannins and tart on the finish.

About Paterna

Paterna is a commune-collective-coop winery and fully functioning farm. In 1985 a small group of friends sought refuge from the encroaching tourism market that we know today as Tuscany. They began with a couple hectares of land and a dilapidated farmhouse, known locally as a ‘casa colonica’ (basically a self-sustaining village where contadini would live and work their land).

Today not much has changed. Paterna continues has grown slowly over the years to what they have now, which is roughly 15 hectares of truly mixed agriculture. Today a group of three young couples guided by Marco and Tamara Scarpellini now inhabit the commune and work with their neighbors (old, toothless Italian guys) to cultivate grapes and many other local products (cheese, honey, salumi, etc).

The farm has been certified organic since its foundation in 1982 and goes beyond that by working completely naturally both in the vineyard and cellars. All fermentations are carried out without added yeasts and little, and more often zero, sulfur is used. Much of the winemaking takes place outdoors in cement vats without temperature control.
