Giusto di Notri 2015 Tua Rita
The 2015 Giusto di Notri is a proud, proud, proud achievement. This is an enormously profound red wine that raises a noble and majestic banner that flies high above the enological coast of Tuscany. The blend is mostly Cabernet Sauvignon with smaller components of Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Merlot currently clocks in at 10% and that quota has been reduced compared to past vintages. The wine is aged in equal parts new and neutral oak. This is a gorgeous wine that surprises most of all thanks to the unexpected nature of its fine and delicate floral aromas. Yes, there’s plenty of black fruit and spice at its core. That’s par for the course when it comes to a wine of this important extraction, intensity and power. But that flirtatious, perfumed hint of blue flower and rose bud is its most memorable feature in my opinion. This is a very special wine.
