In Bond case of Syrah Per Sempre, Tua Rita 2016 is available on allocation only.
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 Syrah Per Sempre has not been released for two years. It is only ever made in blockbuster years in tiny quantities, for 2016 only 1,300 cases have been produced. James Suckling describes this wine as, “The Hermitage La Chapelle of Italy.”
“This is a superb red with dark-berry and spice character. Full and flavorful. Decadent and so attractive. Round tannins, yet they remain firm and carry everything long on the finish. 95-96 points”. James Suckling
