91pts James Suckling

This is a delicious red. As always, it shows delicious blackberries, walnuts and a light hazelnut character. Medium body, fine tannins and a clean finish. Nice tension at the end.

91pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2017 Rosso dei Notri is afforded a careful pre-selection of grapes from the most important vines, and the harvest was particularly limited and selective in this hot vintage. The blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Sangiovese sees a brief fermentation process and just a touch of barrique to retain the signature elements of these grapes. In the end, this Rosso dei Notri emerges as soft and dark but uncomplicated. The fruit is ripe and succulent, all very reminiscent of the 2009 vintage. You can't beat this excellent value from Tuscany.

90pts Vinous

The 2017 Rosso dei Notri is a plump, bold wine. Dark cherry and plum fruit, chocolate, new leather and spice flesh out in this succulent, flamboyant entry-level wine from Tua Rita. Plush tannins give the 2017 its soft, voluptuous feel. Above all else, the 2017 Rosso di Notri is a stunning value.

Winemaker Notes

This wine is deep ruby red in color, with aromas of black fruits --namely blackberries, plums and ripe black cherries over more subtle notes of cocoa, licorice and sweet spice. On the palate, the wine is smooth, with silky tannins and bracing acidity, showing structural balance long into the finish.

Pair this wine with prosciutto-wrapped asparagus, spice rubbed chicken, or lasagna Bolognese with béchamel sauce.
