Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 91

Dark red. Beautifully pure mineral, black plum and spicy blackberry aromas are given extra lift by delicate minty and herbal nuances. Rich yet refined on the palate, offering plenty of ripe, almost chewy black plum, blackberry, cedar, mushroom and menthol flavor. The bright acidity gives focus to the flavors and keeps the wine lively and buoyant on the long, smooth finish.

Nice, fresh, enticing aromatics waft upwards as the 2005 Giusto di Notri opens in the glass, revealing a full-bodied, supple personality imbued with an attractive warmth in its expression of blueberries, spices, mocha, minerals and toasted oak. Though a smaller-scaled Giusto di Notri in relative terms, the supple texture and caressing, generous qualities are those of a first-class wine. Giusto di Notri is primarily Cabernet Sauvignon, with some Merlot and Cabernet Franc included.

Complex aromas of black currant, mineral and dried herbs follow through to a full body, with silky, racy tannins and a long finish. Coffee and toasty oak character. Turns to raspberry jam. Needs time to mellow. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.

Definite notes of cedar on the nose. Deep, dark berry fruits on the palate. Still a little tight on the finish. A very good wine but a bit overpriced.

Well balanced blend. Lots of fruit. Can drink now, but might be better in 3-5 years.

Tar, shoe leather, and ripe stewed fruit. Hold onto this one!

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.
