The philosophy of wine-making for Podernuovo a Palazzone is to produce elegant yet simple wines that show Tuscan style and values. For owner Giovanni Bulgari, developing wines means the continued tradition of excellence and a commitment to uncompromising quality which is what the Bulgari family name stands for and part of his DNA. As the name suggests, this wine wants to evoke the true flavors of the Tuscan soils. Therra is Podernuovo's core wine.
The training system used is spurred cordon. The soil is clayey, chalky, sandy and pebbly. Harvest took place the first half of September.
