Intro: In 1984 Rita and Virgilio realized 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…

Region: Italy | Tuscany

Winery: Tua Rita 

Grapes: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot

Aging: French Oak Barrels

Tasting Notes: Robert Parker for Wine Advocate 90 Points: “The outstanding 1997 Giusto dei Notri (a 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot blend aged in French oak and bottled with neither fining nor filtration) exhibits a dark ruby/purple color, and excellent aromatics consisting of toasty new oak, lead pencil, black currants, chocolate, and smoke. Layered and rich, but backward and unevolved, with copious tannin in the finish, this wine should improve with further cellaring. The low acidity and sweet fruit give it immediate accessibility, but the wine has not yet developed its secondary aromatics.” (RP) Aug 1999
