Teruzzi & Puthod 2008 Toscana Bianca Terre di Tufi

Winemaker says this is a blend of 80% Vernaccia, 7% Chardonnay, 7% Malvasia, and 6% Vermentino.

Deep straw color, gold glints in the deepest parts of the glass. Pinpoint bubbles of petillance form on its surface.

Peach and pear smells under plenty of oak.

Flavors of pineapple, peach, pear, lime.

Excellent medium-to-full-bodied bottle. $22.99. I generally don't favor big oaky whites, but this is well-considered, with a good blend of fruit balancing the wood.
