Dark raspberries, freshly cut flowers, violets, licorice mint and sweet spices literally jump from the glass in the 2010 Giusto di Notri. An articulate, beautifully delineated wine, the 2010 impresses for its nuance and balance. Even with all the richness, the flavors remain bright, focused and lively. This is a great showing from Tua Rita. Giusto di Notri is 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc.
Anticipated maturity: 2015-2022

The 2010 Giusto di Notri shows similar heft and determination with a more evolved and slightly more sophisticated bouquet. There is a lot of black fruit at the start with background tones of dark mineral, tobacco and spice. The delivery is robust and fleshy at the same time. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030. Stefano Frascolla and Tua Rita have almost single-handedly put Suvereto on Italy’s winemaking map. His latest releases are nothing short of spectacular. Importer: Winebow Inc.; www.winebow.com
