($85) Deep ruby-red. Superripe aromas of chocolate-covered raspberry, quinine and coriander. Broad, spicy and palate-staining, with strong plum and mocha flavors and impressive density. The rather suave tannins turn just a bit dry towards the back end.

Although the 2003 Giusto di Notri, a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc, may not quite reach the level of the 2004 it too is outstanding. Boasting an attractive set of super-ripe fruit, earth, herb and well-integrated oak sensations, it is a plump, juicy Giusto di Notri that should provide its best drinking within the next few years. Like so many 2003s it suffers from slightly hard, drying tannins but there is enough fruit to provide balance and the tannins have become better integrated since I last tasted this wine a few months ago.

This is very jammy on the nose, but impressive with lots of raspberry and blackberry aromas. Full-bodied, soft and round, with loads of opulent fruit. Lots of vanilla on the finish. Thick and caressing. Flamboyant red here. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. 1,915 cases made.

About This Producer


Located in Suvereto, a small medieval Tuscan town on the south coast of Bolgheri, Tua Rita is best known for its 100% Merlot, Redigaffi, which earned a perfect 100-point score from Robert Parker in the 2000 vintage. However, all the bottlings from this 55-acre estate deserve attention.

Rita Tua and her husband Virgilio Bisti bought their property in 1984 and planted 45 acres of the clay and silt soil to Cabernet and Merlot. Stefano Chioccioli presides over winemaking and produces just 3,400 cases annually, making Tua Rita wines some of the most difficult finds in Italy.
