"This wine is a beautiful surprise". 96pts Monica Larner, Wine Advocate

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.

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…

Also part of Selection Schwander, the Tua Rita 2018 Bosco dei Sugheri is an 80/20 blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. This bold wine lavishes on full-bodied intensity and lots of dark concentration that is shaped by the ripeness of the fruit (that saw a hot spell toward the end of a rather coolish growing season) and the use of barrique. Aromas of baked blackberry, clove and bacon fat lift heavily from the bouquet. To the palate, the wine shows generous richness and textural weight. This wine is a beautiful surprise. 96pts Monica Larner
