Born in 1984, the estate was never meant to be anything more than a peaceful country farm to allow Rita and her husband Virgilio to enjoy their love of the countryside. Little did they know that they were going to create one of the most exciting and influential estates of the second wave of Super-Tuscans. Having crafted the first Italian wine to receive the coveted 100 points, they helped to write the next chapter of modern history of Italian wines. Now with Stefano Frascolla at the helm of this family estate, Tua Rita are still pushing boundaries and creating some of the most exciting Italian wines out there.
2017 is the year of celebration for Tua Rita. It marks the 25th anniversary of the release of Giusto di Notri, the estate’s emblematic label. A vintage marked by a hot and dry summer, where the access to the deep water reserves of the estate was crucial to craft wines that retain freshness and purity. The 2017 vintage gave wines which enchant with remarkable purity and elegance. The wines show pure, concentrated, perfumed aromas and flavours, framed by elegant tannins and lively acidity. A hauntingly beautiful vintage which has surely the potential to be inscribed as one of the classics of the estate.
A pure Merlot, Redigaffi combines elegance and power in a perfect balance. Pure and chiselled notes of red fruit, cacao and liquorice are framed by silky, elegant tannins and still vivacious acidity. A superbly crafted release of this iconic wine.
Giusto di Notri
Celebrating its 25th anniversary, Giusto di Notri 2017 is a beautiful wine of excellent structure, delicate tannins and pronounced varietal notes of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. A true celebration of the estate’s style.
Syrah Per Sempre
A landmark year for Syrah on the estate, Per Sempre 2017 is an incredibly seductive, precise, concentrated and perfumed wine. An impeccable ambassador for this grape variety in Tuscany!
Fermented in amphorae and now at its second ever release, Keir is a fresher, more lively expression of Syrah. The 2017 manages to combine incredible purity and concentration with a great drinkability and expressiveness. Another classic in the making.
