Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 93

($224; 100% syrah) Deep inky ruby. Complex nose melds the olive aromas of Crozes-Hermitage with the black pepper of Cote-Rotie, plus the superripe, almost roasted red fruits typical of the Suvereto area. Less powerful in the mouth than the nose suggests, with flavors of candied red fruits, dried herbs and bacon. Finishes broad and creamy, with ultra-smooth tannins and a saline nuance. Probably the best syrah ever made at Tua Rita.

The estate's 2007 Syrah explodes from the glass with cracked black pepper, cured meats, blueberry jam and sweet spices. This is a remarkably muscular, full-throttle Syrah that offers exceptional balance and tons of complexity. Mineral-infused black fruit, graphite and crushed rocks are some of the nuances that inform the long, refreshing finish. In 2007, the Syrah is Tua Rita's flagship wine.

Displays loads of flowers, with licorice and mint combining with crushed dark fruits. Full-bodied, with supersilky tannins and vanilla, blueberry, licorice and coconut flavors on the finish. Long and very polished.

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.
