Tasting Notes

The production of Tua Rita?s Syrah is minute; just 2500 bottles were made in 2012. Unsurprisingly, this is an exceptional wine that displays a wonderful, silky texture and a multifaceted character. An effortless charm distinguishes this Syrah, revealing beautifully pure notes of violet, red cherry, kirsch and soft, warming vanilla spice. The fruit is intensely compelling, with a joyful, viscerally thrilling youthfulness, bringing an energy and freshness to the finish which seems to typify the vintage.

Reviews & Scores

Tua Rita has always done a fabulous job with their Syrah, but the 2012 takes things to another level. It is the first vintage in which winemaker Luca D'Attoma used a small percentage of whole clusters, a common practice throughout the world, but one that is rarely seen in Tuscany. The 2012 Syrah is intense, with layers of expressive floral and red-toned notes that captivate the senses. Fine and silky on the palate, the 2012 boasts superb personality and pure grace. I can't wait to see how the wine develops over the coming years.

The wine offers smooth transition and rich textural fiber, with soft angles and contours that frame the wine's full-bodied approach.96...

The 2017 Keir is 100% Syrah done in terra cotta, with a fair amount of whole clusters. That approach brings out a more savory, floral side of Syrah as compared to the Syrah Per Sempre, along with a distinctly red-toned fruit profile and elements of feral/earthy intensity that are quite intriguing. There is just a bit of reduction – which...
