Dr Stefano Chioccioli is one of the most respected winemakers in Tuscany. We have long eshewed the Tuscan Syrah but this is irrisistable. Deep, deep colour and a beautiful autumn hedgerow nose of bramble, truffle and wild flowers. I love the tempered finish; silky and cool not sultry and stewy. Drink from 2018 to 2028+
Producer Information: Tua Rita
When Rita Tua and her late husband bought a property in southern Tuscany in 1984, they could have never anticipated that they would end up heading the second generation of Super Tuscans with the proximity to the sea, gently sloping and a unique clay-based soil from the metalliferous hills of the Val di Cornia. Now Stefano Frascolla and his wife Simena, Rita’s daughter, are now at the helm of the estate. The wines are now more elegant and refined than ever, true gems of the Tuscan coast, crafted with the same attention to detail and pioneering spirit from the beginning.
