1997 Giusto di Notri Tua Rita

Size Availability? price? Qty

Average critic rating : 90.0 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. Anticipated maturity: 2001-2012.

A decadent red, with intense aromas of berry and herb and a hint of meat. Full-bodied, with lots of soft tannins. The delicious aftertaste has succulent ripe fruit, tobacco and toasted oak. Drink now through 2002. 500 cases made. James Suckling, Winespectator.com

Tua Rita is located in Notri in Suvereto, one of the warmer microclimates in Italy. The estate covers over 50 hectares, with 30 taken up by vines. This is one of Tuscany’s leading properties.
