Tua Rita Rosso Dei Notri 2021
Very consistent Rosso from a Super Tuscan. Indigo coloured; tight rim. On the first nose, ripe and intense black fruits(blackberries, plums and ripe black cherries over more subtle cocoa notes, liquorice and sweet spice. It seems brooding, with some complexities(from a mix of grapes) and is accessible on the palate- juicy with nuances of tar, coffee and chocolate. Quite wooded but still harmonious. Medium body soft tannins and medium finish, yet very structured, created impressions of length and intensity. Sweetish finish; tannins and wood spices support throughout(this long?!). Minty. Simple though. A piece of good lamb rack will be perfect.
This youthful offering from Tua Rita is 50% Sangiovese and 50% blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Syrah, harvested in September from vineyards foothills of Suvereto, a small hilltop village in Tuscany. After a gentle pressing, the wine aged three months in French oak barriques and stainless steel tanks.
Impressive score, for example, JS93. 'A pretty red with blackberries, blueberries, sage, and dried flowers. Medium body with light, fine tannins and a fresh finish. One of the best I have had. Drink now or hold. ' ( Edited)
