Restaurant week at Officina and a perfect wine for our three course meal. Thank you Natalie for the recommendation. Deep ruby red in appearance. Took some time to open up on the nose but showed layers of mocha, floral, touch of minerals, blue and black fruits and spices. Medium tannins (5.5/10) with balanced acidity and a medium plus body. Plush Merlot definitely comes through in the mid palate with black currants, black cherries, chocolate, espresso and a touch of earthiness. Long and lingering finish. Drink till 2023.

Crazy good wine for only $60.00 on a wine list. Made up of 50% Sangiovese with the remainder made up of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah, making this a true Super Tuscan Blend. All the Sangiovese is aged in stainless steel while the rest are aged in barriques. This wine is from an area in the southern part of Tuscany called Maremma, more specifically Upper Maremma in the Colline Metallifare zone. Need to find some more of this IGT. Label is designed by Raffaele De Rosa.

The 2017 Rosso dei Notri is a stunning value from Tua Rita. Dark cherry and plum fruit, chocolate, new leather and spice flesh out in a succulent, flamboyant Maremma red with soft curves and tons of sheer appeal. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, September 2018) $20.00

I opened this in 2019 maybe a bit past its ideal drinking date. The color was a deep brownish red and the nose was mostly leather. The first taste was of plum of raisin. But after decanting the wine opened up and was mellow and savory. The tannins were mild and well rounded. Long legs.

Lots of varied spicy notes, and the tannins come in slowly. Quite nice for their entry level.

Good stuff! Tua Rita is a superb winery! Fruit driven but enough complexity. Nice!
