95+ Points - Antonio Galloni

I have tasted the 2013 Sirah Per Sempre several times over the last few months and it just keeps getting better. Intensely aromatic, Tua Rita's Syrah is unusual for the Tuscan coast because of its distinctly floral/savory personality. Sweet tobacco, rose petal, sage, mint, wild flowers and red-fleshed fruit are some of the signatures. In the 2013 Sirah readers will find a wine endowed with tons of nuance and complexity. A final kick of aromatics married to rich Suvereto fruit leaves a lasting impression on the finish. Just bottled, the 2013 is quite raw and in need of time, but it is incredibly promising, not to mention delicious.

Zalto Denk-Art Universal Glass

Zalto Universal Glass is recommended for richer, oaked Sauvignon Blancs such as The Fuder, white Graves or Semillon/Sauvignon blends as well as young and non-vintage Champagne. The Zalto Universal is a very good all-rounder, designed for all types of wines but may not maximize the potential of certain wine as much as the Bordeaux or Burgundy glass.

Tua Rita

Producer

Gentle slopes with medium-textured, clay soil; more stony areas, all kissed by the sun and caressed by the cooling wind that blows up at the hottest part of the day keeping the grapes nice and cool. The family’s tireless and meticulous approach in all aspects of the winery has led to some outstanding and highly deserved accolades from wine enthusiasts and critics worldwide. Perhaps most notably, with the 2000 vintage of Redigaffi, Tua Rita became one of only a handful of Italian wines to have been awarded the coveted 100 points from Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate and continues to produce outstanding wines with an impressive consistency and quality year in year out.

Antonio Galloni: “I would be remiss if I did not say something about how delicious the entry and mid-tier wines are here. Sure, most of the focus continues to fall on the dual flagships Redigaffi and Syrah, but savvy readers will pay just as much attention to the more modestly priced offerings as well.”

Region

The Tuscan wine region is situated on the Tyrrhenian coast, in the centre of Italy. Like much of the country it has a rich wine making history. Tuscany also has a number of appellations within the region including over thirty Denominazioni di origine controllata (DOC) and at least 7 Denominazioni di Origine Controllata e Garantita (DOCG). Red grape varieties thrive here taking 70% of the region’s production. The Italian Sangiovese grape is king here and the quality of the wine it yields depends heavily on the exposure and particularly on the altitude at which it is planted. From Tuscany, we recommend either the smooth yet full bodied Tenuta San Guido Guidalberto 2012 or for something a little more decadent, the 2006 Fattoria Petrolo Galatrona made from 100% Merlot from the Petrolo Estate.
