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.
"The 2008 Syrah is a big, expressive wine loaded with varietal character. Iron, minerals, bacon fat and blackberries are just some of the nuances that blossom in this striking wine. All of the aromas and flavors build towards the exciting, viscerally thrilling finish. I have said it before, and I will say it again. The Syrah is the most distinctive wine at Tua Rita. This is a great, great bottle. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2028."
The Wine Advocate
"This is really delicious, with meat, berry and game aromas and flavors. Full and decadent—just how I like my Syrah. One of the best Syrahs in Tuscany. Best after 2011."
"Rita's blockbuster Syrah oozes thick, inky concentration with luscious layers of ripe fruit, blueberry, leather and bitter dark chocolate. You’ll sense cedar wood and licorice as well and the mouthfeel is super soft and smooth. Drink after 2015."
