Giusto di Notri Rosso Tua Rita Toscana-Supertuscans 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

An incredible "super Tuscan" that is a Bordeaux blend comprised of 30% Merlot, 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 10% Cabernet Franc with aromas of plums and black cherry with a hint of tar and floral notes that has a nice bite and a long, fine finish. "The 2009 Giusto di Notri boasts tons of power and sheer energy. Dark cherries, plums, tobacco and incense are all wrapped around a powerful core of fruit in this expressive, beautifully delineated wine. The 2009 impresses for its length, radiance and fine overall balance. Floral notes laced with a hint of sweet rose petals add brightness and lift on the finish. *94 points*"Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Purchased in 1984, this winery is family-run, founded on Rita’s anv Virgilio’s insistence of retreating to a quite place to spend their retirement by cultivating the land , their great passion. It was exactly this enthusiasm that pushed them to concentrate their energies and means to exploit the great potential which this small plot of land was hiding. The winery, located in Notri in Suvereto, lies approximately 100 meters above sea level and is made up of medium-textured, clayey lands, rich in micro-elements such as iron and zinc that distinguish the wines with “mineral regionality” and in which the international varieties find rather favourable environment. It was thus by a lucky intuition that the couple planted Merlot and Cabernet, because by blending the two wines Giusto di Notri was born in 1992, which was instantly talked about in the national and international press for its depth and “Tuscanicity” encountered in the glass. Later they decided to leave two barriques of Merlot and make them into wine without blending: in 1994 Redigaffi would become a cult wine, the first Italian wine to obtain a score of 100/100 from Robert Parker with its 2000 vintage , enabling Tua Rita to be added to the list of the 100 best wineries of the world according to the prestigious Revue du Vin de France. An escalation of successes began for Tua Rita that over the years led it to expand and modernize the cellar. Thanks to the collaboration of their son-in-law Stefano Frascolla (owner of the winery of the same name ) and of oenologist Dr. Stefano Chioccioli the winery today extends over 50 Ha , of which 30 Ha are vines. Production stands at 110.000 bottles, spread among five red wines and two white ones. Read less

Intensives Bukett nach Cassis und Holunderbeeren, reiffruchtig, mit röstigen Noten. Sehr weicher Auftakt im Gaumen, gute Struktur, sehr sauber und klar, präzise vinifiziert mit mürben Tanninen im Abgang.
