The critics have spoken and we enthusiastically agree! The 2015 Tua Rita Rosso Dei Notri is a winner and one heck of a value. This Italian Super Tuscan beauty from highly acclaimed producer Tua Rita overdelivers with a perfect combination of old world soul and new world flavor. This wine is gorgeous, packed with red and black fruit flavors (red plums, strawberry tea, black cherry), silky tannins and a touch of spice and earth. Delicious, compelling and a great bargain. This is a great transitory wine that isn't too heavy for the last touches of the summer sun while containing enough body to meet Fall in an equitable fashion. Really a lovely, easy-drinking red.

Tua Rita is located in the small medieval town of Suvereto in Tuscany, on the coast south of Bolgheri. Grapes from this property made their way into iconic Sassicaia until Tua Rita commenced estate bottling and quickly captured the world's attention with their Redigaffi and Giusti di Notri blends. Winemaker, Stefano Chioccioli crafts this blend of 50% Sangiovese with the balance comprised of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. The grapes for Rosso dei Notri are culled from the estate's younger vines and are made to be enjoyed upon release or over the next few years.

JAMES SUCKLING 92 POINTS - "A vibrant red with blueberry and chocolate plus currant and raspberry. Medium body, round tannins and lots of beautiful fruit. 50% sangiovese, 20% cabernet sauvignon, 20% syrah and 10% merlot. Better to drink in 2017 but so impressive now."

WINE ADVOCATE 91+ POINTS - "This well-priced blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah has earned a steady and enthusiastic following in both foreign and domestic markets. The 2015 Rosso dei Notri makes a great ambassador for this vintage. The wine shows a level of completeness, fullness and textural richness that is a good sign for all Tuscan reds made in this fortunate growing season. The wine opens to a darkly saturated ruby appearance with generous aromas of cherry and blackberry with spice and tobacco. The tannins are nicely integrated within the fiber of the fruit."

Additional Info

Country: Italy

Italy is home to some of the oldest wine-producing regions in the world, and Italian wines are known worldwide for their broad variety. Italy, closely followed by France, is the world’s largest wine producer by volume. Its contribution is about 45–50 million hl per year, and represents about ⅓ of global production. Italian wine is exported around the world and is also extremely popular in Italy. Grapes are grown in almost every region of the country and there are more than one million vineyards under cultivation. Italy's twenty wine regions correspond to the twenty administrative regions. The 73 DOCG wines are located in 15 different regions but most of them are concentrated in Piedmont, Veneto and Tuscany. Among these are appellations appreciated and sought after by wine lovers around the world: Barolo, Barbaresco, and Brunello di Montalcino (colloquially known as the "Killer B's"). Other notable wines that in the latest years gain much attention in the international markets and among specialists are: Amarone della Valpolicella, Prosecco di Conegliano- Valdobbiadene, Taurasi from Campania, Franciacorta sparkling wines from Lombardy, Chianti and Soave, while new wines from the Centre and South of Italy are quickly gaining recognition: Sagrantino, Primitivo, Nero D'Avola among others. The Friuli-Venezia Giulia is world famous for the quality white wines, like Pinot Grigio.

Varietal: Sangiovese

Sangiovese is a red Italian wine grape variety. Though it is the grape of most of central Italy from Romagna down to Lazio, Campania and Sicily, outside Italy it is most famous as the only component of Brunello di Montalcino and Rosso di Montalcino and the main component of the blend Chianti, Carmignano, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and Morellino di Scansano, although it can also be used to make varietal wines such as Sangiovese di Romagna and the modern "Super Tuscan" wines like Tignanello. Young Sangiovese has fresh fruity flavors of strawberry and a little spiciness, but it readily takes on oaky, even tarry, flavors when aged in barrels. While not as aromatic as other red wine varieties such as Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Syrah, Sangiovese often has a flavor profile of sour red cherries with earthy aromas and tea leaf notes. Wines made from Sangiovese usually have medium-plus tannins and high acidity.
