Tua Rita: The Importance

Tua Rita is one of Tuscany’s leading properties. Founded in the 1980s, it is the home of the world-famous Redigaffi, which became a rightful legend of Italian wine when Robert Parker awarded the 2000 vintage his first ever 100 point score. Since then, the property has gone from strength to strength, achieving real heights of quality while remaining true to their independent roots. Antonio Galloni has called them “one of Tuscany’s small, family-owned reference-points”.

 

Tua Rita is located in Tuscany’s Alto Maremma, on low-elevation, gently sloping hillsides. The terroir is the perfect environment for growing Merlot, hence the success of the 100% Merlot Redigaffi. Tua Rita’s wines are widely accepted as serious rivals to the more northerly Super-Tuscans – in fact, in its early years Tua Rita provided grapes to Sassicaia. In the words of the Wine Advocate’s Monica Larner, Tua Rita has “almost single-handedly put Suvereto on Italy’s winemaking map”.

 

Tua Rita: The Insight

Tua Rita is rightfully most famous for the Redigaffi and Syrah (sometimes known as Syrah per Sempre), both of which have received huge scores over the years. The 1997 Redigaffi won 100 points from James Suckling, while Parker called the 1999 “as close to perfection as a wine can get”. Galloni considers Tua Rita to have “always done a fabulous job with their Syrah”. However while these two wines should certainly be at the top of your wishlist, they do not tell the whole story; Tua Rita is also a goldmine for entry and mid-level wines.

 

Antonio Galloni has been very vocal in his praise of Tua Rita’s other offerings, writing “I would be remiss if I did not say something about how delicious the entry and mid-tier wines are here… most of the focus continues to fall on the dual flagships Redigaffi and Syrah, but savvy readers will pay just as much attention to the more modestly priced offerings as well”.

 

These include the Giusto di Notri, which Galloni has previously called “gorgeous” and the Perlato del Bosco Rosso, which James Suckling considers to be “very balanced and impressive”.

 

Tua Rita works with high density vineyards and low yields per plant. The team strive to find the precise balance for each plant so yields can vary between vines. The grapes are hand-picked and then meticulously selected and destemmed at the winery. Originally, Tua Rita’s vineyards consisted of just two hectares planted with Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Expansion over the years has brought other varietals, including Cabernet Franc, Syrah and Sangiovese, and the vineyards currently stand at around 35 hectares.

 

Tua Rita: The Background

The estate was founded by Rita Tua and her husband Virgilio Bisti in 1984. Their intention was to live in harmony with the surrounding nature and the two hectares of vines that they planted were simply part of this mission. Their grapes from their early plantings went to Sassicaia, and the success of this arrangement led Rita and Virgilioto expand their vineyards and work towards launching their own wine in 1992. They enlisted the help of Luca D’Attoma (who also works with Le Pupille and Duemani) as a consultant oenologist and worked with him to create the best possible wine, all while staying true to their original mission of naturally farming their land. Virgilio sadly passed away in 2010, but processes at the estate have not changed, with his and Rita’s daughter Simena and son-in-law Stefano Frascolla stepping in to help run operations. If one thing is for certain, it is that Tua Rita remains at the very top of its game.
