2016 Giusto Di Notri, Tua Rita, Tuscany, Italy
A tannic and firm wine with blueberry and cherry character, firm and silky tannins and a powerful finish. Solid. A blend of cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc and merlot. 94-95 Points, James Suckling
This wine is a beautiful Bordeaux blend with Tuscan attitude. The blend is generally around 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, and 10% Cabernet Franc, with only 2500 cases produced. The cooling influence of the sea is instrumental in giving this wine a refined, elegant and mineral style. Superb depth and appeal. This wine is always a sensational buy.
“The wines are not to be missed” Robert Parker
Tua Rita continues its inexorable rise to the top of Italy’s most collectable estates. 2016 will go down in history as one of the great vintages in Tuscany, where quality looks to have surpassed even the exceptional 2015s. Proprietor, Stefano Frascolla, is extremely pleased with the overall power and precision of the vintage, which he compares to the superlative 2001 and 2007 vintages. Overall, the wines express stunning perfume and elegance, despite their obvious structural power.
