(JS96-97 points) 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.

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. Can't wait to taste in bottle. Made from organic grapes.

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 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. - Monica Larner

Black cherry, creme de cassis, smoke, plum, new leather, spice, French oak and dark spice notes infuse the 2015 Giusto di Notri.

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.

This powerfully oaky, succulent wine has a super-smooth texture. It's rich and round with lots of vanilla, cream and exotic spice notes, and it's packed with deep, dark fruit. A suggestion of crunchy blackberries and firm... This powerfully oaky, succulent wine has a super-smooth texture. It's rich and round with lots of vanilla, cream and exotic spice notes, and it's packed with deep, dark fruit. A suggestion of crunchy blackberries and firm tannins reminds us that this is a mainly Cabernet Sauvignon blend in a hot vintage (with typically 35% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc). Like some of the other Tua Rita wines, the Giusto di Notri offers a more affordable way to experience the top wines of this iconic producer.

Wine Spectator, October 2018
Powerful and dense, this red packs plum, blackberry, vanilla, loam and tar aromas and flavors. Polished, yet backed by a monolithic structure, this finishes long and spicy. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc... Powerful and dense, this red packs plum, blackberry, vanilla, loam and tar aromas and flavors. Polished, yet backed by a monolithic structure, this finishes long and spicy. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2020 through 2028. – BS

Tua Rita

Tua Rita, one of Italy’s first successful producers of vins de garage, was founded by Rita Tua and her husband Virgilio in 1984. They started with just 2 hectares of vineyard which they tended with scrupulous care. As a result, their vineyard had grown to 9 hectares in barely a decade and today, Tua Rita farms some thirty hectares planted to vine.

Tua Rita’s vineyards are located in the Cornia valley near Suvereto in the High Tuscan Maremma, in an area known as Metalliferous Hills. The soil composition of pebbles and stones as well as clay, silt and sand, with a generous helping of mineral trace elements, leaves a distinctive mark on Tua Rita’s wines, imparting unique iron-like nuances to the aromatics and lending the palate a delicious hint of saltiness.

This leading Tuscan estate is known for their famous 100% Merlot, Redigaffi, which has gained cult status, receiving praise and accolades from wine enthusiasts and even a perfect 100 score from wine critic Robert Parker. Their range of wines also includes their signature wine, Giusto di Notri, which is a classic Bordeaux blend; Per Sempre, a single-variety Syrah; Perlato del Bosco, a varietal Sangiovese beginning with the 2011 vintage; Rosso dei Notri, an entry-level wine; Lodano, an experimental white wine; and Perlato del Bosco Bianco.
