Winemaker's Notes

Deep purple in color, Giusto di Notri offers abundant and very intense aromas of blackberry, plum, chocolate-covered strawberries, and currants followed by enticing notes of bell pepper, coriander, violet and a touch of vanilla. Full bodied, with rich, sweet tannins, and a jammy texture, Giusto di Notri is a stunning wine with great aging potential. Ideal for barbecued ribs, steaks, grilled meats and medium-aged cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

"Impossibly intense and rich, Giusto di Notri is a compelling blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot that takes brutal hold of your senses thanks to its amazing density and texture. The long list of aromas generated here includes black cherry, spice, tobacco and cola and the wine glides in excruciating slow motion over the palate. "
95 Points

"Complex aromas of black currant, mineral and dried herbs follow through to a full body, with silky, racy tannins and a long finish. Coffee and toasty oak character. Turns to raspberry jam. Needs time to mellow. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Best after 2010. 2,000 cases made."
93 Points

"Nice, fresh, enticing aromatics waft upwards as the 2005 Giusto di Notri opens in the glass, revealing a full-bodied, supple personality imbued with an attractive warmth in its expression of blueberries, spices, mocha, minerals and toasted oak. Though a smaller-scaled Giusto di Notri in relative terms, the supple texture and caressing, generous qualities are those of a first-class wine. Giusto di Notri is primarily Cabernet Sauvignon, with some Merlot and Cabernet Franc included. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2022. "
92 Points

"Dark red. Beautifully pure mineral, black plum and spicy blackberry aromas are given extra lift by delicate minty and herbal nuances. Rich yet refined on the palate, offering plenty of ripe, almost chewy black plum, blackberry, cedar, mushroom and menthol flavor. The bright acidity gives focus to the flavors and keeps the wine lively and buoyant on the long, smooth finish."

Thought the flavors should be more distinctive. Sediment was really a problem. Had good nose but I would not rate it above 90pts.
