Goes on for minutes. Give it three or four years of bottle age but already so delicious. Drink in 2022. collapse

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. With the next vintage, this wine celebrates its 25th birthday. - Monica Larner collapse

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 collapse

Dusty tannins hold court on the finish, but this is fresh and youthful overall. Shows fine length, echoing the dark fruit elements and hints of bell pepper and spice. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2022 through 2032. – BS collapse

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.
