From: Tuscany, Italy
Varietals: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc
Rita Tua and her husband, Virgilio Bisti, bought approximately 37.5 acres of land in 1984 and planted it with Cabernet and Merlot. They later purchased an additional 17.5 acres of land, bringing the total estate to 55 acres, of which about 45 are planted with vines. The winery released its first vintage in 1992, and soon began receiving praise and accolades from wine enthusiasts worldwide for its rich, full-bodied wines.
Tasting Notes: Deep purple in color, Giusto di Notri offers abundant aromas of blackberry, plum, and currants with underpinnings of coriander, violet, and a touch of vanilla. Full-bodied with ripe, fine tannins and a silky texture, this is a stunning wine with great aging potential.
"A wine of substance and depth, the 2017 Giusto di Notri is terrific. In 2017, the Giusto has a bit less opulence than normal (typical of wines of the coast in this vintage) and yet that also gives it more immediacy. A rush of sweet red/purplish berry fruit, cinnamon and spice builds as the 2017 shows off its racy curves. Drinking window: 2021 - 2029." –Antonio Galloni, Vinous, 93 points
"The 2017 Giusto di Notri is a special 25th anniversary bottling that is chiseled, sharp and focused. The small part of Merlot gives it some added sweetness (the percentage of Merlot was slightly reduced in this vintage), the touch of Cabernet Franc contributes the power, freshness, and dark fruit, and along with a starring role of Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine has lots of beautiful plushness restrained by a tight, disciplined linearity. This vintage saw less time in barrique (about 16 months) but the barrels had more toasting. There is a lasting mineral note of chalk or limestone that frames the dark and opulence quality of fruit at its core. The bouquet is stunning. The wine treads lightly in the palate, with a very elegant and nuanced approach. It really is another gorgeous wine from Tua Rita that shows the profound skill of this winemaking team even when faced with a hot vintage such as this." –Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 96 points
Pairing: Ideal for barbecued ribs, steaks, grilled meats and medium-aged cheeses.
