Notes from the Winemaker:

Giusto di Notri is a Bordeaux-inspired blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, selectively harvested in September. After a gentle pressing, the juice and skins macerate for a lengthy period of 25-30 days to add concentration and depth to the final wine. The wine is then aged for 18-20 months in French oak barrels and refined six months in bottle before release.

The word "Giusto" refers to the name of the Patron Saint of Suvereto (the hilltop Tuscan town where Tua Rita is located) and "Notri" is the name of the winery's exact location.

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.

Food Pairing: Ideal for barbecued ribs, steaks, grilled meats and medium-aged cheeses.

Varietal composition: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, and 10% Cabernet Franc
Type of oak: French
Length of aging before bottling: 18-20 months

Ratings & Reviews

94 Points - James Suckling:
"Gorgeous aromas of spices, from chili powder to dried thyme, plus dark fruits such as currants and berries. Full body, fine tannins and layers of fruit and flavor. Very attractive now but even better in two or three years. This commemorates the 20th anniversary of this wine. Balanced blend of cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc and merlot." (Sep 2014)

94 Points - Wine Enthusiast:
"Made with Cabernet and Merlot, this offers scents of cedar, black currant, graphite and aromatic herb. Notes of licorice, ground pepper and tobacco accent the core of crushed blackberry and black cherry while polished tannins provide the framework. The lingering finish ends on a tobacco note." - KK (Aug 1, 2015)

94 Points - Vinous Media:
"A dark, brooding wine, the 2012 Giusto di Notri presents a compelling array of dark stone fruits, grilled herbs, smoke, tobacco and menthol. The power of Suvereto and these Bordeaux varieties are both super-expressive in a virile, imposing wine loaded with personality and gorgeous, totally resonant fruit. This is a terrific showing." - Antonio Galloni (Sep 2014)

93 Points - Robert Parker:
"The 2012 Giusto di Notri is an IGT Toscana blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. It opens with rich, impenetrable concentration and luminous ruby highlights that shine bright against the inner darkness of this beautiful wine. Dark fruit, leather, spice, moist chewing tobacco and dark chocolate lift from the glass. The wine shows firm structure with silky tannins that render a polished texture on the finish." - Monica Larner (Sept 2015)
