• "Perlato del Bosco" Vermentino Toscana IGT 2020

      “Perlato del Bosco” Vermentino Toscana IGT 2020

      Characteristic bouquet of kiwi, lime blossom and honeydew melon. On the palate, a very pleasant creamy texture, rich and soft. Fresh, minerally and long, it shows its maritime origin and a structural density that predestines it as a food companion. A beautiful interpretation of the Tuscan Vermentino grape! SUPERIORE.DE

    • "Rosso dei Notri" Toscana IGT 2018

      “Rosso dei Notri” Toscana IGT 2018

      Rosso dei Notri is a solid, concentrated drop with bite and power that will give you plenty of pleasure with its fleshy, long-lasting taste, pleasant overall harmony and reasonable value. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Powerful, bright ruby red. In the nose appealing notes of dark berries, fresh and powerful. At the palate a lot of supple tannin, fine-meshed, builds up well, long finish, juicy." Falstaff

      "The 2018 Rosso dei Notri is an absolute delight. Once again, it is one of my favorite wines in the range. Fresh and fruity, with plenty of Suvereto fleshiness, the Rosso is such a gorgeous wine. Sweet pipe tobacco, cedar and dried flowers add aromatic nuance to a core of red Sangiovese fruit." Vinous

      The 2018 is a blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. Aimed at younger drinkers, it's intended to be immediately approachable: only 10% of the wine spent time in oak, and not for very long, so the emphasis is on a fruity, accessible style. The nose is delicately balanced between dark blackberries, blackcurrants and bright red berries. Juicy flavours and vivid acidity give a nice freshness to this medium-bodied wine. Decanter

      "The 2018 Rosso dei Notri  is a very fresh and tonic red that surprisingly comes from fruit harvested two weeks later than normal. And Merlot is not always happy to stay on the vines for longer than it has to. It's a fruit-forward wine that was aimed more at freshness instead of concentration, making it a good pair for a simple margherita pizza. You get terrific value here." Robert Parker

      "Aromas of chocolate and dark fruit with hints of blackberries, cherries and hazelnuts. Medium body, fine tannins with hints of herbs and dark fruit, and a lovely finish." James Suckling

    • "Perlato del Bosco" Rosso Toscana IGT 2019

      “Perlato del Bosco” Rosso Toscana IGT 2019

      Pure-grained Sangiovese from western Tuscany cannot be compared with the interpretations from Montalcino or Chianti Classico due to its cultivation near the coast, but the somewhat different facet is in no way inferior to those mentioned. Saturated, bright ruby red. Intense and complex bouquet of cherries, lilacs and broom, densely woven on the palate with black cherries, spices and grilled herbs, all framed by a terrificfreshness and lightness. A supple and elegant wine, whose well-dosed acid wire will not only give it the necessary structure, but also the framework for a wonderful further phase of maturation. SUPERIORE.DE

      “Lodano” Bianco Toscana IGT 2020

      A true champion is the Lodano, a not everyday cuvée of Chardonnay with Riesling and Gewürztraminer. Powerful, dense and soft with aromas of stone fruit, apricot, honey and candied orange peel. Then it moves on to delicate mineral nuances with crushed granite and shells. Excellent length, depth and floral freshness. The cleansing acidity comes through at the end with attractive brightness. Perfectly embodying Stefano Frascolla's excellent signature, this is an exceptional white. SUPERIORE.DE

    • "Keir" Ansonica Toscana IGT 2019

      “Keir” Ansonica Toscana IGT 2019

      Keir Ansonica is the white answer to Keir Syrah, which is also aged in amphorae. A wine produced in a small edition of 2,000 bottles, neither clarified nor filtered, it is an expression of innovation and tradition at the same time.

      Light golden yellow. Fine, reductive bouquet of lemon peel, tropical fruits and yellow apple with hints of smoke, honey, spices, herbs and broom. Dry, medium-bodied palate with nice acidity, freshness and complexity. The flavours reflect the bouquet beautifully and lead into a medium length finish. Very nice first vintage of this truly special white wine. SUPERIORE.DE

      "This is the first vintage of a Keir white wine, made from Ansonica macerated on the skins in amphorae for two months. Unclarified and unfiltered, it has a deep, golden, Sauternes-like colour, with waxy orange peel aromas and just a hint of mineral and irony. Salty, savoury flavours on the palate are accompanied by a noticeable tannic edge. A twist of orange peel make this a characterful wine, perfect for drinking with spicy Szechuan-style dishes."

    • "Giusto di Notri" Rosso Toscana IGT 2018

      “Giusto di Notri” Rosso Toscana IGT 2018

      The excellent Cabernet-Merlot blend Giusto di Notri is a concentrated drop with an intense, rich taste. Perfectly dosed bouquet of blackberry, redcurrant and fine herbal spice. Compact on the palate with a well-tempered balance between fruit and oak, plus a distinctive tannin, promising and powerful on the final. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Dark shining, rich garnet. Open-hearted nose of ripe berry fruit, bright spice, very rich cherry, raspberry, slightly earthy undertone in the finish, complex. Flattering and red berry on the palate, opens promptly and clearly, still young, pleasant spicy undertone, complex and very drinkable." Falstaff

      "This 2018 Giusto dei Notri seems delightfully Cabernet Franc-like, although that variety is usually the minor player in the blend. Intense cassis and leafy notes intertwine, while on the palate more concentrated blackcurrant, green herb, elegant cedar and sweet spice flavours mingle with iron and mineral notes. I love the slightly sappy Bordeaux-like notes here and there. A beautifully elegant and persistent wine." Decanter

      "This gorgeous 2018 Giusto di Notri (tasted in a preview capacity before its October 2020 release date) was born beautiful, or so I am told. The wine saw little racking and a hands-off approach, because it came seamlessly together on its own in the winery. Merlot was harvested first in mid-September, and the Cabernets came off the vines in October, without a cloud in the sky. The wine shows the heft and determination you should expect, although this vintage reveals a magically delicate and elegant side with aromas of blue flowers, spice and wild plums. Again, I am reminded of purely Tuscan aromas with wild sage, grilled rosemary and macchia mediterranea shrubs that grow wild in these parts. The wine is also light and fresh on the palate with a surprising degree of weightlessness, yet the persistence is long and polished." Robert Parker

      "A rich, layered red with berries, chocolate and blueberries. Lightly smoky. It's full-bodied and layered with ripe tannins. Balanced and focused. Just a baby now, but will deliver! Best after 2023." James Suckling

    • "Keir" Syrah Toscana IGT 2018

      “Keir” Syrah Toscana IGT 2018

      Here comes the second vintage of Tua Rita's new wine from the Alta Maremma. Just 2,500 bottles of this 100% Syrah will be bottled, aged (on the skins) for half a year in amphorae, then filtered and matured in small French oak barrels.

      Radiant ruby red. On the nose, a seductive mix of cherry with hints of chocolate, herbs and a subtle liquorice note. On the palate, cherry again, complemented by a kaleidoscope of chocolate, coffee and a subtle juniper note. A fabulous acid structure and fine-grained tannins guide the precisely composed wine into a furious final. Keir complements the winery's high-class portfolio in a very independent and emphatic way. Great! SUPERIORE.DE

      "Sparkling ruby with brightening rim. Very clear and inviting note with hints of raspberry and clove, some Szechuan pepper, also spicy rosemary. Lots of present fruit, also lots of raspberry on the palate, firm tannin, grippy on the final." Falstaff

      "The 2018 Keir very much stands out in this set of new releases from Tua Rita. A passion project and something of an intellectual challenge accepted mutually by Stefano Frascolla and Luca D'Attoma, this is Syrah fermented in Tuscan amphorae with six months of skin contact. This vintage is especially delicate and pure, and one important reason for this is the growing season that was extended by 15 days in this 2018 vintage. That extra time allowed the fruit to mature slowly according to its own time table. This is a luxury that is appreciated by Syrah in particular. The wine emerges with delicate, almost fragile aromas of wild rose, wet earth, violets and crushed black pepper. Syrah is very expressive of territory and vintage, and this wine speak of classic Tuscany. It is naked in its purity." Robert Parker

      "The first vintage of Keir in 2016 signalled a new style of wine for Tua Rita: 100% Syrah fermented and macerated on the skins for six months in terracotta amphorae. This 2018 has mineral, gun-flinty aromas but with lively, pure flavours of brambles, smoke and liquorice. It has a beautifully elegant, gossamer palate with very fine-textured tannins." Decanter

Bright magenta in colour with an exuberant nose of vivid sweet blackcurrant, cream and spice, this has youthful raspberry, white pepper and flint flavours mixed with concentrated yet vibrant fruit. Impossible to resist, with a lovely weightless texture and harmony, it dances seamlessly across the palate and disappears with incredible lightness but lingering flavours. Syrah meets Burgundy!"

    • "Per Sempre" Syrah Toscana IGT 2018

      “Per Sempre” Syrah Toscana IGT 2018

      Deep dark, almost impenetrable red. On the nose, a whole range of ripe wild berries, finely underpinned by nuances of tobacco, leather and lavender. Also on the palate with lots of fruit, powerful, yet silky and elegant. Traces of dark chocolate in the endlessly long final. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Powerful, bright ruby violet. Opens with notes of beeswax, black pepper and lots of elderberry, very clear. Still a bit timid at the beginning, but blossoms grandly in the course, lots of blueberry and blackberry, firm pressure in the final." Falstaff

      "Aromas of blue fruit, white pepper, dried flowers and stone. It's full-bodied and grows on the palate, showing blue fruit, black tea leaves and chocolate. Bitter orange at the end. This is a baby. Solid and tight. Needs two or three years to come together." James Suckling

      "The 2018 Per Sempre is one of the best examples of this wine I have tasted. The combination of freshness and elegance of the 2018 vintage combined with the powerful expression of Tua Rita's Syrah has created something magical: it has a dense, complex nose with liquorice, blackberry, flint, smoke and roasted meat notes. Big, bold flavours of blackberries, wood smoke and liquorice lead to a juicy, bright, savoury finish. It's concentrated but still manages to be light on its feet." Decanter

      "This is a true Syrah-lover's wine. The wine shows the dark exuberance of a Californian Syrah or a Shiraz from Australia with the fragile elegance of a Côte-Rôtie. But when you really get down to it, the Tua Rita 2018 Syrah Per Sempre is all-Italian in heart and soul, forever, as its name implies. That's what makes it so exciting and interesting to try if you are otherwise smitten by this grape variety as I am. Stefano Frascolla tells me that of the various varieties he cultivates, Syrah is the most reactive to place and vintage. It is almost fragile in its demeanor compared to the more sturdy and sure-footed Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Syrah is a bit more finicky as well. It appreciates a long growing season, and that's exactly what it got in 2018. The grapes had ample time to ripen slowly, thus developing finesse and complexity along the way. This edition of Per Sempre offers deep intensity with dark fruits, plum and plenty of savory spice both from the oak aging and the grape itself (planted in a mix of clay and schist soils). In the mouth, the wine is softly textured, graceful and detailed. Robert Parker

      The excellent Cabernet Merlot blend Giusto di Notri is a concentrated wine with an intense rich taste. Perfect is the balance between fruit and oak, wonderful the power of the tannins, promising the aftertaste. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Velvety, intense ruby violet. Somewhat reserved nose, needs time, after blackberries and dark currants, some herbal spice. On the palate compact, shows juicy, dark berry fruit, opens with a grippy, dense tannin, builds itself up richly, in the finale firm pressure, lots of tobacco." Falstaff

      "The 2016 Giusto di Notri is fabulous. Spectacularly rich and explosive, the 2016 is a real thrill to taste. The intensity of the fruit it simply remarkable. It's hard to say how long the 2016 will retain this level of voluptuousness, but today the Giusto is an arrestingly beautiful, layered wine full of character. Blackberry jam, graphite, spice, menthol and licorice infuse this dramatic, potent wine. Put simply, the 2016 is a thrill a minute." Antonio Galloni

      "This has a wonderful texture of beautiful, ultra-fine tannins, complex character of dark fruit, currants, hazelnuts and light chocolate. Goes on for minutes. Give it three or four years of bottle age but already so delicious." James Suckling

      "The 2016 Giusto di Notri is a profound and dark blend of Cabernet Sauvignon with smaller parts Cabernet Franc and Merlot. It exudes gravitas and importance with every sip, showing consecutive, deep layers of minerality, dark stone, spice and rich fleshy fruit, all bound by tight structure and fiber. This wine is remarkable both in terms of texture and dimension. There is a touch of sourness on the close. This is sure to be an interesting wine to follow as it opens up over the years. Indeed, the best is still to come, as Giusto di Notri is built for long cellar aging." Robert Parker

    • "Giusto di Notri" Rosso Toscana IGT 2018 <br>MAGNUM in OWC

      “Giusto di Notri” Rosso Toscana IGT 2018 · MAGNUM in OWC

      The excellent Cabernet-Merlot blend Giusto di Notri is a concentrated drop with an intense, rich taste. Perfectly dosed bouquet of blackberry, redcurrant and fine herbal spice. Compact on the palate with a well-tempered balance between fruit and oak, plus a distinctive tannin, promising and powerful on the final. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Dark shining, rich garnet. Open-hearted nose of ripe berry fruit, bright spice, very rich cherry, raspberry, slightly earthy undertone in the finish, complex. Flattering and red berry on the palate, opens promptly and clearly, still young, pleasant spicy undertone, complex and very drinkable." Falstaff

      "This 2018 Giusto dei Notri seems delightfully Cabernet Franc-like, although that variety is usually the minor player in the blend. Intense cassis and leafy notes intertwine, while on the palate more concentrated blackcurrant, green herb, elegant cedar and sweet spice flavours mingle with iron and mineral notes. I love the slightly sappy Bordeaux-like notes here and there. A beautifully elegant and persistent wine." Decanter

      "This gorgeous 2018 Giusto di Notri (tasted in a preview capacity before its October 2020 release date) was born beautiful, or so I am told. The wine saw little racking and a hands-off approach, because it came seamlessly together on its own in the winery. Merlot was harvested first in mid-September, and the Cabernets came off the vines in October, without a cloud in the sky. The wine shows the heft and determination you should expect, although this vintage reveals a magically delicate and elegant side with aromas of blue flowers, spice and wild plums. Again, I am reminded of purely Tuscan aromas with wild sage, grilled rosemary and macchia mediterranea shrubs that grow wild in these parts. The wine is also light and fresh on the palate with a surprising degree of weightlessness, yet the persistence is long and polished." Robert Parker

      "A rich, layered red with berries, chocolate and blueberries. Lightly smoky. It's full-bodied and layered with ripe tannins. Balanced and focused. Just a baby now, but will deliver! Best after 2023." James Suckling

    • "Redigaffi" Rosso Toscana IGT 2014

      “Redigaffi” Rosso Toscana IGT 2014

      Deep ruby red with violet reflections. In the bouquet complex with hints of forest and blackberries, ripe cherries, but also liquorice and tobacco notes. Very structured and very elegant on the palate. The silky tannins underline the filigree minerality to the almost infinite echo. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Here's a wine that defeats the odds of the difficult vintage with a firm sense of style and confidence. The 2014 Redigaffi is Merlot that benefits from the sea breezes and bright sunshine of Coastal Tuscany to downplay the soggy and cool summer growing season. The fruit tastes ripe and plump with black cherry and red currant backed by heavier tones of spice, leather and tobacco. That the wine is made with care and the upmost attention to detail is evident. You can taste this in the quality of the wood and the fine tannic management." Robert Parker

      "Fantastic aromas of red pepper, chocolate, chili, and blueberry. Medium to full body, fine tannins and a beautiful length and balance. A triumph for a difficult vintage in 2014. And the 20th vintage of this great pure merlot made. I am not sure I would wait on this one. Too delicious now." James Suckling

      "A dense, sinewy style, whose black cherry, toast, vanilla and cedar flavors are wrapped in a cloak of spicy oak. Shows a supple texture and good balance, set on a linear profile. Minerally, with terrific length." Wine Spectator

    • "Redigaffi" Rosso Toscana IGT 2018

      “Redigaffi” Rosso Toscana IGT 2018

      Rare exceptional Merlot from the west of Tuscany: Deep ruby red with violet reflections. Multi-layered bouquet with hints of wild berries and blackberries, ripe cherries, but also liquorice and tobacco notes. Very structured and at the same time lively on the palate. The silky tannins underline the filigree minerality until the seemingly endless finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Dark shining garnet. Opens the nose with notes of dark berries, delicate tobacco spice, light leather, black currants, precise and concentrated, underpinned by fine barrel spice, noble. On the palate polished and salty, spans a wide range, clear, precise dark berry fruit, tense, still young, will settle down superbly." Falstaff

      "Born from the estate's oldest Merlot vines, the Tua Rita 2018 Redigaffi is a phenomenal achievement. Thanks to the long growing season that allowed the grapes ample time to ripen, this edition shows impressive depth and intensity of flavors. Black cherry, plum and sweet baking and barbecue spice are dosed carefully, but generously. The main attraction here is the mouthfeel, which achieves richness, plush softness and concentration in a most natural and convincing manner. The wine is absolutely seamless from start to its very long finish, and its playlist of positive attributes endures for as long as there is wine in the bottle. With so many successful vintages behind it, Redigaffi is a wine that nails its primary objectives year after year. In that sense, it is extremely reliable and consistent. This is one of the icon wines of Italy." Robert Parker

      "The wine that started it all for Tua Rita: 100% Merlot grown on clay/pebbly soil. 2018 was a fresher and cooler vintage in general and has produced an elegant version of Redigaffi. Lively aromas of tomato leaf, toasted oak and smoky liquorice mingle with complex flavours of cream, spice and dark plums. This luxurious Merlot has a velvety texture and a touch of sappy bite, with a long finish." Decanter

      "Lots of chocolate and berries, as well as spice, walnuts and vanilla. It's full and layered. Extremely long and flavorful. So juicy and sexy. Luscious is the word. Opulent with polish and presence. Chewy at the end. Brightness and energy here." James Suckling

      “Keir” Syrah Toscana IGT 2018 · 3 Bottles in OWC

      Here comes the second vintage of Tua Rita's new wine from the Alta Maremma. Just 2,500 bottles of this 100% Syrah will be bottled, aged (on the skins) for half a year in amphorae, then filtered and matured in small French oak barrels.

      Radiant ruby red. On the nose, a seductive mix of cherry with hints of chocolate, herbs and a subtle liquorice note. On the palate, cherry again, complemented by a kaleidoscope of chocolate, coffee and a subtle juniper note. A fabulous acid structure and fine-grained tannins guide the precisely composed wine into a furious final. Keir complements the winery's high-class portfolio in a very independent and emphatic way. Great! SUPERIORE.DE

      "Sparkling ruby with brightening rim. Very clear and inviting note with hints of raspberry and clove, some Szechuan pepper, also spicy rosemary. Lots of present fruit, also lots of raspberry on the palate, firm tannin, grippy on the final." Falstaff

      "The 2018 Keir very much stands out in this set of new releases from Tua Rita. A passion project and something of an intellectual challenge accepted mutually by Stefano Frascolla and Luca D'Attoma, this is Syrah fermented in Tuscan amphorae with six months of skin contact. This vintage is especially delicate and pure, and one important reason for this is the growing season that was extended by 15 days in this 2018 vintage. That extra time allowed the fruit to mature slowly according to its own time table. This is a luxury that is appreciated by Syrah in particular. The wine emerges with delicate, almost fragile aromas of wild rose, wet earth, violets and crushed black pepper. Syrah is very expressive of territory and vintage, and this wine speak of classic Tuscany. It is naked in its purity." Robert Parker

      "The first vintage of Keir in 2016 signalled a new style of wine for Tua Rita: 100% Syrah fermented and macerated on the skins for six months in terracotta amphorae. This 2018 has mineral, gun-flinty aromas but with lively, pure flavours of brambles, smoke and liquorice. It has a beautifully elegant, gossamer palate with very fine-textured tannins." Decanter

      "2019 is for Stefano Frascolla an exceptional vintage - one of the best vintages of the last two decades. Bright magenta in colour with an exuberant nose of vivid sweet blackcurrant, cream and spice, this has youthful raspberry, white pepper and flint flavours mixed with concentrated yet vibrant fruit. Impossible to resist, with a lovely weightless texture and harmony, it dances seamlessly across the palate and disappears with incredible lightness but lingering flavours. Syrah meets Burgundy!"

      Wonderfully dense red. First ripe currants and cherries, then fine spices and menthol nuances. Intense and full-bodied on the palate. The fine-meshed tannins are rounded off again by the oak wood storage. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Here is a high performance wine from Stefano Frascolla and his family. The 2015 Giusto di Notri is mostly Cabernet Sauvignon with smaller parts Cabernet Franc and Merlot. The wine is contemporary, complex and gorgeous from tip to toe. You get a lot of power here and generous oak-driven tones of sweet espresso, chocolate and spice that surround a succulent core of dark fruit and candied cherry. All these elements appear even bigger and bolder in this warm vintage." Robert Parker

      "This is dense and structured with beautifully polished tannins and plenty of currant and blackberry character. Full body and chewy tannins yet refined and juicy. Lots of Mediterranean herbs with the dark fruit. Blend of mostly cabernet sauvignon with merlot and cabernet franc. Pretty barrel sample. This is coming along very nicely." James Suckling

      "Black cherry, creme de cassis, smoke, plum, new leather, spice, French oak and dark spice notes infuse the 2015 Giusto di Notri. Plush, succulent and totally flamboyant, the Giusto di Notri is another wine that captures the natural exuberance of Suvereto. All the elements simply fall into place. Readers should expect a rich, bold Tuscan red." Antonio Galloni

      Deep dark, almost impenetrable red. In the nose a whole range of mature forest berries, finely underlined by nuances of tobacco, leather and lavender. Also on the palate with a lot of fruit, powerful, but still silky and elegant. The best Syrah in Tuscany?! SUPERIORE.DE

      "Sparkling ruby-violet. Fine, accessible nose, opened with notes of raspberry, also some sweat. On the palate a lot of sweet fruit, luxuriant, like a baroque angel, opens with fine meshed tannin, stretches a wide arch, spicy finale." Falstaff

      "Aromas of dried meats, light strawberry jam and dried fruits, likeChristmas pudding. Full body with round, ripe tannins and plenty ofchocolate, vanilla and spice on the finish. Drink now or hold." JamesSuckling

      "Layers of inky, black fruit, grilled herbs, smoke, menthol andmelted road tar are all layered together in the 2012 Syrah. Deep, fleshy and explosive in the glass, the Syrah is endowed with marvelouscomplexity and depth while remaining remarkably light on its feet forsuch a big wine. Hints of lavender, violets, leather and blueberry jaminform the finish. In 2012, the Syrah benefits greatly from longermacerations at lower temperatures and an overall gentler approach toextraction. The 2012 Syrah has been nothing short of remarkable on themultiple occasions I have tasted it so far." Antonio Galloni

      "Tua Rita makes some of the finest Syrah in Italy and the 2012 Syrah Per Sempre confirms this statement. This is a fabulous wine that isbrimming with dark fruit intensity, beautifully polished spice, leather, tobacco and a playful touch of smoked bacon fat at the back. The winedelivers an exciting sense of momentum and it builds in character anddetermination as it glides over the palate. This gorgeous wine needs afew more years of bottle aging to complete its promising evolution." Robert Parker

      The excellent Cabernet-Merlot blend Giusto di Notri is a concentrated wine with an intense rich flavour. The balance between fruit and oak is perfect, the power of the tannin is wonderful, the aftertaste is promising. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Velvety, intense ruby violet. Somewhat reserved nose, needs time, after blackberries and dark currants, some herbal spice. Compact on the palate, shows juicy, dark berry fruit, opens with handy, dense tannin, builds up richly, in the final firm pressure, lots of tobacco." Falstaff

      "The 2016 Giusto di Notri is fabulous. Spectacularly rich and explosive, the 2016 is a real thrill to taste. The intensity of the fruit it simply remarkable. It's hard to say how long the 2016 will retain this level of voluptuousness, but today the Giusto is an arrestingly beautiful, layered wine full of character. Blackberry jam, graphite, spice, menthol and licorice infuse this dramatic, potent wine. Put simply, the 2016 is a thrill a minute." VINOUS

      "This has a wonderful texture of beautiful, ultra-fine tannins, complex character of dark fruit, currants, hazelnuts and light chocolate. Goes on for minutes. Give it three or four years of bottle age but already so delicious." James Suckling

      "The 2016 Giusto di Notri is a profound and dark blend of Cabernet Sauvignon with smaller parts Cabernet Franc and Merlot. It exudes gravitas and importance with every sip, showing consecutive, deep layers of minerality, dark stone, spice and rich fleshy fruit, all bound by tight structure and fiber. This wine is remarkable both in terms of texture and dimension. There is a touch of sourness on the close. This is sure to be an interesting wine to follow as it opens up over the years. Indeed, the best is still to come, as Giusto di Notri is built for long cellar aging." Robert Parker

      Deep dark, almost impenetrable red. In the nose a whole range of mature forest berries, finely underlined by nuances of tobacco, leather and lavender. Also on the palate with a lot of fruit, powerful, but still silky and elegant. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Powerful, sparkling ruby violet. Clear and present nose, of elderberries, plums and dried kitchen herbs. In the front much rich fruit, opens with velvety, dense tannin, smooth and very long, like from a casting, builds up in the back area rich, firm pressure, in the aftertaste dark chocolate, somewhat alcoholic." Falstaff

      "This is an absolutely gorgeous expression, very full and generous. The 2016 Syrah Per Sempre spent a little less time in oak compared to other vintages, just 16 months, and the results are excellent. This area's Syrah always does best in hot years, such as 2009 and 2007, and this vintage is reminiscent of the latter. There is lovely black fruit, surrounded by milled black pepper and hints of charcuterie. The key to hot-vintage Syrah is to keep the extraction low: This wine saw a 20-day maceration period, but still, the Syrah Per Sempre is thick and highly concentrated, and the 15% alcohol content is unmistakable. This would be a perfect accompaniment to a filet mignon and potatoes au gratin. This Syrah is a true standout." Robert Parker

      "Tua Rita's 2016 Syrah Per Sempre is fabulous. Crème de cassis, lavender, licorice, plum and blueberry jam are all beautifully delineated. Savory, powerful and also structured, the 2016 has plenty of intensity, but it also is not as dense or obvious as has been the case in the recent past. Readers should be prepared to cellar the 2016 for at least a few years." Antonio Galloni

      "This is very exotic and seductive with dark berries, incense, citronelle and hints of sandalwood. Full-bodied, chewy and intense with a powerful palate and a long finish. Very fresh and muscular syrah. Needs three or four years to come around." James Suckling

      “Giusto di Notri” Rosso Toscana IGT 2018 · 6 Bottles in OWC

      The excellent Cabernet-Merlot blend Giusto di Notri is a concentrated drop with an intense, rich taste. Perfectly dosed bouquet of blackberry, redcurrant and fine herbal spice. Compact on the palate with a well-tempered balance between fruit and oak, plus a distinctive tannin, promising and powerful on the final. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Dark shining, rich garnet. Open-hearted nose of ripe berry fruit, bright spice, very rich cherry, raspberry, slightly earthy undertone in the finish, complex. Flattering and red berry on the palate, opens promptly and clearly, still young, pleasant spicy undertone, complex and very drinkable." Falstaff

      "This 2018 Giusto dei Notri seems delightfully Cabernet Franc-like, although that variety is usually the minor player in the blend. Intense cassis and leafy notes intertwine, while on the palate more concentrated blackcurrant, green herb, elegant cedar and sweet spice flavours mingle with iron and mineral notes. I love the slightly sappy Bordeaux-like notes here and there. A beautifully elegant and persistent wine." Decanter

      "This gorgeous 2018 Giusto di Notri (tasted in a preview capacity before its October 2020 release date) was born beautiful, or so I am told. The wine saw little racking and a hands-off approach, because it came seamlessly together on its own in the winery. Merlot was harvested first in mid-September, and the Cabernets came off the vines in October, without a cloud in the sky. The wine shows the heft and determination you should expect, although this vintage reveals a magically delicate and elegant side with aromas of blue flowers, spice and wild plums. Again, I am reminded of purely Tuscan aromas with wild sage, grilled rosemary and macchia mediterranea shrubs that grow wild in these parts. The wine is also light and fresh on the palate with a surprising degree of weightlessness, yet the persistence is long and polished." Robert Parker

      "A rich, layered red with berries, chocolate and blueberries. Lightly smoky. It's full-bodied and layered with ripe tannins. Balanced and focused. Just a baby now, but will deliver! Best after 2023." James Suckling

      “Redigaffi” Rosso Toscana IGT 2018 · MAGNUM in OWC

      Rare exceptional Merlot from the west of Tuscany: Deep ruby red with violet reflections. Multi-layered bouquet with hints of wild berries and blackberries, ripe cherries, but also liquorice and tobacco notes. Very structured and at the same time lively on the palate. The silky tannins underline the filigree minerality until the seemingly endless finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Dark shining garnet. Opens the nose with notes of dark berries, delicate tobacco spice, light leather, black currants, precise and concentrated, underpinned by fine barrel spice, noble. On the palate polished and salty, spans a wide range, clear, precise dark berry fruit, tense, still young, will settle down superbly." Falstaff

      "Born from the estate's oldest Merlot vines, the Tua Rita 2018 Redigaffi is a phenomenal achievement. Thanks to the long growing season that allowed the grapes ample time to ripen, this edition shows impressive depth and intensity of flavors. Black cherry, plum and sweet baking and barbecue spice are dosed carefully, but generously. The main attraction here is the mouthfeel, which achieves richness, plush softness and concentration in a most natural and convincing manner. The wine is absolutely seamless from start to its very long finish, and its playlist of positive attributes endures for as long as there is wine in the bottle. With so many successful vintages behind it, Redigaffi is a wine that nails its primary objectives year after year. In that sense, it is extremely reliable and consistent. This is one of the icon wines of Italy." Robert Parker

      "The wine that started it all for Tua Rita: 100% Merlot grown on clay/pebbly soil. 2018 was a fresher and cooler vintage in general and has produced an elegant version of Redigaffi. Lively aromas of tomato leaf, toasted oak and smoky liquorice mingle with complex flavours of cream, spice and dark plums. This luxurious Merlot has a velvety texture and a touch of sappy bite, with a long finish." Decanter

      "Lots of chocolate and berries, as well as spice, walnuts and vanilla. It's full and layered. Extremely long and flavorful. So juicy and sexy. Luscious is the word. Opulent with polish and presence. Chewy at the end. Brightness and energy here." James Suckling

      “Redigaffi” Rosso Toscana IGT 2014 · 3 Bottles in OWC

      Deep ruby red with violet reflections. In the bouquet complex with hints of forest and blackberries, ripe cherries, but also liquorice and tobacco notes. Very structured and very elegant on the palate. The silky tannins underline the filigree minerality to the almost infinite echo. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Here's a wine that defeats the odds of the difficult vintage with a firm sense of style and confidence. The 2014 Redigaffi is Merlot that benefits from the sea breezes and bright sunshine of Coastal Tuscany to downplay the soggy and cool summer growing season. The fruit tastes ripe and plump with black cherry and red currant backed by heavier tones of spice, leather and tobacco. That the wine is made with care and the upmost attention to detail is evident. You can taste this in the quality of the wood and the fine tannic management." Robert Parker

      "Fantastic aromas of red pepper, chocolate, chili, and blueberry. Medium to full body, fine tannins and a beautiful length and balance. A triumph for a difficult vintage in 2014. And the 20th vintage of this great pure merlot made. I am not sure I would wait on this one. Too delicious now." James Suckling

      "A dense, sinewy style, whose black cherry, toast, vanilla and cedar flavors are wrapped in a cloak of spicy oak. Shows a supple texture and good balance, set on a linear profile. Minerally, with terrific length." Wine Spectator

    About the winemakersTua RitaTuscany | Maremma
    Tua Rita

    The winery is clearly among those in Italy that have cult status and enjoy an excellent reputation abroad. Not far from the Tyrrhenian Sea, picturesquely situated on a hill in the small medieval village of Suvereto, the initially small artisan business has developed over time into a modern enterprise. The area under cultivation has increased continuously from two hectares at the beginning to 30 hectares at the end. Founded by Virgilio Bisti and Rita Tua, the fate of the house after the death of her father is increasingly determined by daughter Simena and her dynamic husband Stefano Frascolla. In the Val di Cornia wines are produced, which can convert the joyful character of their terroir first-class.

    On the 50-hectare estate in the Maremma, the vineyards immediately behind the winery are characterised by low and moderately sloping slopes. They are planted with the red varieties Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Sangiovese and Syrah, as well as with the white varieties Chardonnay, Trebbiano, Riesling, Traminer, Ansonica and Vermentino. Depending on the location, the density of planting varies between 5,000 and 9,000 vines per hectare. The grapes are picked by hand and sorted in the cellar. The soils are medium-heavy, stony and loamy, with clay and sand components and are also rich in mineral trace elements such as zinc and iron.

    The extraordinary reputation of Tua Rita is based above all on the Redigaffi, which has become a showpiece since the nineties. It is a pure Merlot, full of character and radiating sensual artistry. However, this excellent plant is no longer without competition at the top of all the labels of the house, since other products - such as the Syrah and the Bordeaux blend Giusto di Notri - are always very well known in the professional world. All the wines of the Tuscan winery - including seven red ones - are admirable, very well structured and modern.

    After the turn of the millennium, the wine cellar was expanded and redesigned for the production of high-profile products. Through minimalism and controlled inactivity, the very high quality of the noble drops is carefully preserved right into the bottle. The annual output of Tua Rita has long since left the four-digit range and has jumped to over 200,000 bottles to date. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Tua Rita is the first producer to establish Suvereto as the new Bolgheri in the 1990s. The Redigaffi is perhaps Italy's greatest Merlot." Hugh Johnson.
