Reminiscing about this amazing value Super Tuscan we had at Officina last week during restaurant week in DC.

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.

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

Aroma of cherries and rose; tasted mostly cherry and black fruit. (Some of the reviewers noted chocolate, but I couldn’t pick that up.) Silky tannins, great depth & length. This wine goes on and on. Tremendous value at $15.

Nice red with an Italian dinner. Not sure it’s a “Super” Tuscan

50% Sangiovese and 50% cab sauv, merlot and syrah. Bottled but not yet released on the market. Excellent presentation, with huge tannins. Needs another 2 years in my opinion - @ tua rita winery.
