Tua Rita was founded in 1984, with Rita and Virgilio Bisti recognised as among the earliest ‘Super Tuscan’ producers. Nestled on the slopes of the ‘metalliferous hills’ of the Maremma, an area known as the Val di Cornia in the coastal region of Tuscany.
Tua Rita is a benchmark for winemaking in the region and has gained a reputation for producing some of the most iconic Italian wines. The original plot of 2Has has now grown to 30Has where they have carved out a reputation for being some of the best producers of Cabernet and Merlot in Tuscany. Tua Rita gained cult status in Italy and around the world with the famous Redigaffi, which has won praise from the world’s most famous wine critics and sommeliers – this was the first Italian wine to win an 100 point score from barrel from the inimitable Robert Parker with the 2000 vintage. Today, they continue to innovate, championing Syrah and amphora-aged wines.
Tua Rita’s wines command great respect, as do the family’s tradition of meticulous winemaking and vine growing practices, coupled with their modesty and attention to detail. This is very much a family concern with management of the estate passing to the founders’ daughter and her husband Stefano Frascolla, who will be joining us to explain these fabulous wines.
Join us on the 15th June, showcasing the whole range of wines, including icon Rosso di Notri and Giusto di Notri, their new amphora-aged Syrah Keir, and an older vintage of the famous Redigaffi. It’s a fabulous line of stunning wines and a rare chance to taste the best of Italian winemaking today.
