Really beautiful blackberry and violet aromas follow through to a full body with a tight and compressed palate, showing gorgeous fruit and fine, silky tannins. Succulent and textured. Better in a year or two. Try after 2023.

The Merlot adds volume and richness, and the Petit Verdot brings sharpness and specific aromas of graphite and pencil shavings. Petit Verdot represents the majority of the blend, but this grape never exceeds 70% of the wine in any vintage. That's because it produces thick skins and very concentrated flavors when cultivated on the Tuscan Coast, and any more would be too much of a good thing. This wine sees brooding black fruit at its core with spice, tobacco and tarry smoke. Some 14,000 bottles were made in this vintage, and that's a bigger production than average. - ML

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.
