Tua Rita Bosco dei Sugheri
In 1984 Rita and Virgilio realized their lifelong dream purchasing the property that became Tua Rita. The landscape and buildings on this property were a mere setting for living in contact with nature whilst farming their beloved land. Their overwhelming passion for wine actually changed their plans…The original two hectares of vineyards have been cultivated meticulously since the beginning, this rigorous and passionate care collocated Tua Rita among the most successful producers labeled as “vins de garage”. In less than a decade they had extended the property up to nine hectares, then twenty; nowadays the totality of the planted vines includes thirty hectares and the wines produced have unquestionably become amongst Tuscany’s most critically highly rated and most sought after. Bosco dei Sughere is a very special, limited production (5000 bottles only) cuvée and 2018 is only the fifth vintage. The Wine Advocate’s Monica Larner, one of the very few critics to be given a taste, has yet to score 2018 but has awarded every previous edition 95 or 95+ points. She said last year’s release was the “surprise hit in this tasting and is one on of my favorites in terms of immediate drinking pleasure”. A little late to party, we were only able to get our hands on the last 60 bottles available of the 2017 but we have managed to get a better sized allocation of the superb 2018. The blend is 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Cabernet Franc, and as Larner continues “this is a formula that works extremely well along the Tuscan Coast (some of the most celebrated wines in nearby Bolgheri use this same blending blueprint).” One of these is Sassicaia which is 3.5x the price so yet another reason to get behind Bosco! Amongst Tuscany’s next gen, under the radar, and very limited availability Supertuscans to watch out for – this ranks highly on short list of recommendations…
