In 1984, Rita & Virgilio realized their lifelong dream purchasing the property that would become Tua Rita. The picturesque landscapes and buildings on this property set the stage for living in proximity with nature while farming their beloved land. Their overwhelming passion for wine made them craft vintages with uncomprising quality while embodying the proud winemaking tradition in Suvereto, in the heart of the Tuscan hills. Building their property from the initial 2 hectares to over 30 hectares today, their growth has been fueled by their enduring passion & enthusiasm for meticulous winemaking and an even deeper awareness of the huge potential of their Estate situated between the Tyrrhenian Sea and Colline Metallifere, known as Val di Cornia. The 2017 Giusto di Notri, a Bordeaux style blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Cabernet Franc, and 8% Merlot is a special 25th anniversary bottling. Chiseled & sharply focused, this is a bright & fruity red showing great precision (suggestive of a promise of longevity) with intense tannins. The great opulence of its dark fruit core brings a beautiful plushness to its very elegant palate. This is such a gorgeous wine with an equally stunning bouquet. Enjoy this fine wine from 2021 to 2040 with Venison Stew, Beef Bourguignon, Prime Rib, BBQ Ribs, Grilled Meats, & Medium-Aged Cheeses.
Deep purple in color, Giusto di Notri offers abundant aromas of blackberry, plum, and black currants with underpinnings of coriander, violets, and a touch of vanilla. Full-bodied with ripe & fine tannins and a silky smooth texture, this is a stunning wine with excellent aging potential.
