Tua Rita Giusto di Notri Toscan 2015
PRODUCER: In 1984 Rita and Virgilio realised their lifelong dream purchasing the property that became Tua Rita. The landscape and buildings on this property were a mere setting for living in contact with nature whilst farming their beloved land. Their overwhelming passion for wine actually changed their plans. The original two hectares of vineyards have been cultivated meticulously since the beginning, this rigorous and passionate care collocated Tua Rita among the most successful producers labelled as “vins de garage”. In less than a decade they had extended the property up to nine hectares, then twenty; nowadays the totality of the planted vines includes thirty hectares.
WINEMAKING: For about 18 months in new and once-used French oak barriques; after going into bottle in the summer, the wine is left to age for several months before release to market.
TASTING NOTES: Deep purple in colour, Giusto di Notri offers abundant aromas of blackberry, plum and currants with underpinnings of coriander, violet and a touch of vanilla. Full-bodied, with ripe, fine tannins, and a silky texture, this is a stunning wine with great ageing potential.
