In Bond case of Giusto di Notri, Tua Rita 2016
Amongst the ‘Super Tuscans’, Tua Rita has the most humble origins, but some of the most consistently astonishing scores from wine critics. Established in 1984 by Rita Tua and Virgilio Bisti with just two hectares, the estate was planted further south of Bolgheri than anyone else had dared to go. Initially supplying grapes to Sassicaia, they began bottling their wine in the 1990s and in 1999 received their first 100 point score.
The Giusto di Notri is Tua Rita’s flagship Bordeaux-style blend, made up of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. It is known as the estate’s “soul wine”. Only 2,500 cases are produced.
“A tannic and firm wine with blueberry and cherry character, firm and silky tannins and a powerful finish. Solid. A blend of cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc and merlot. 94-95 points.” James Suckling
