Winemaker's Notes:

Hand-crafted by the esteemed winemak er Dr. Stefano Chioccioli, Tua Rita Syrah is a beautiful expression of the noble variety. Yields are kept to a minimum to ensure concentration of flavors. Remark ably layered and complex, this Syrah is pure harmony in the glass and a must for every collector of fine Tuscan wines.

Deep garnet in color, this Syrah boasts rich notes of dark ripe black berries, plums, bacon fat, pepper spice and violets. Full-bodied and silky with perfectly integrated tannins.

About Tua Rita:

Suvereto is a small, medieval town in the province of Livorno. The estate was acquired by Rita Tua and Virgilio Bisti in 1984. Additional vineyards were planted in 1988, 1997 and 1998 which means that fans of these limited wines can look forward to an increase in production as soon as the newest vines bear fruit.

This tiny Tuscan estate has been the recipient of constant accolades for the explosively rich, full bodied wines produced. As of 1998, Stefano Chioccioli, has been the winemaker at this estate. Stefano is reknown in Italy for his expertise in both the vineyard and the cellar and also works with other high quality producers like Allegrini, I Giusti e Zanza and Fanti.
