Tua Rita Per Sempre Syrah 2017 Toscana
- In stock, ready to ship
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.
THE WINE: The production of Tua Rita’s Syrah Per Sempre is very small and only made in the finest vintages. This is an exceptional effort that displays thickset tannins and intense flavours of red cherry, kirsch, violet and beguiling grilled meat undertones. The fruit is intense and rich; with a polished youthfulness and a vibrant fragrance which provides compelling energy from start to finish.
TASTING NOTE: Stefano Frascolla feels this is the best Per Sempre they have made so far. They harvested some of the fruit five days early, but 15% was harvested later than normal. The nose is restrained and youthful but with blackcurrant, lavender, beeswax and wild herb aromas in the background. It's very rich on the palate, smooth-textured with dark chocolate and blackberry flavours and a long, juicy, mouthwatering finish. This is a wonderful slinky, silky Syrah, world-class and certainly Tuscan Syrah at its best!
