Tua Rita Giusto di Notri Toscana Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2016

$67.95

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... 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...

At the Downs Club Super Tuscan dinner last Friday. 2016 seems to have been a good vintage everywhere in Italy. This is a Cabernet predominant blend with Merlot and a little Sangiovese. No detailed notes. Fine powdery persistent tannins. Medium bodied.

My Lord. Multi-layered nose and palette. Like a blackberry pastry covered in chocolate on the nose. It feels like the most elegant new world style cab in the mouth...with tannins that are wrapped in silk. This is just incredible wine. Even at this young age. Bravo.
