Wines included in a case
Tua Rita Giusto di Notri 2016
The Giusto di Notri opens with intoxicating aromas of blackberries, plums, and dried flowers, while the palate offers finely-grained tannins and an impressive structure which will help the wine to age well over the next decade or so. It makes an impressive partner for rich dishes like beef bourguignon or a bowl of fresh pasta served with a hearty ragu sauce.
This wine takes its name from the patron saint of Suvereto, “Giusto”, where the Tua Rita estate is located. Inspired by the great wines of Bordeaux, the Giusto di Notri is a masterful blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc which are planted on pebbly soils on the estate. Following the harvest in September the grape skins and juice are macerated for up to 30 days to add intensity to the wine. The new wine is then aged in French oak barrels for 20 months before bottling and release.
The Tua Rita estate was founded by Rita Tua and her husband who purchased the estate in 1984. In 2000 the estate shot to international acclaim when legendary wine critic Robert Parker awarded their single varietal Merlot wine, Redigaffi, a perfect 100-point score. Today Tua Rita has a reputation for producing some of southern Tuscany’s most impressive Super Tuscan wines.
Antinori Guado al Tasso Il Bruciato 2018
The Antinori Family have been winemakers since the 13th century in winemaking and are best known for their magnificent Super Tuscan wine named Tignanello. A powerhouse name in the industry, the Antinoris today have set up wineries all over the world and are experts in picking out estates to invest in. Their Guado al Tasso property has a unique setting in Bolgheri where the plain is encircled by rolling hills forming a protected amphitheatre shape.
The terroir here is well suited to international grape varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc which are all used in the composition of Il Bruciato. The wine opens with intense dark berry aromas and savoury, earthy hints which deepen and evolve on the palate into cassis, black cherry, and herbal notes. The terroir here favours elegance, crafting a wine with a well-defined structure yet balanced by plenty of freshness.
The refined power and rich flavour profile of this wine makes it an excellent choice for extended cellar ageing. It will continue to evolve and develop over the years if kept in cool, dark conditions. For those who prefer to drink it now, it can be enjoyed paired with charcuterie or red meat dishes.
Felsina Castello di Farnetella Poggio Granoni 2016
Nestled in the thickly forested hills of Colli Senesi, Castello di Farnetella is blessed with high elevation vineyards planted on sand, clay and limestone soils. Conditions here are perfect for producing exceptional red wines like this Super Tuscan which is composed of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah grapes.
To produce the best quality grapes possible, the Poggiali family hand harvest their fruit and practice organic and sustainable agriculture. They have also begun to incorporate some biodynamic principles and only use their own estate-grown grapes in their Chianti and Poggio Granoni wines.
The Poggio Granoni is the estate’s flagship wine and is well-structured with plenty of silky smooth tannins and intense notes of dark plum, cherry, blackberry and hints of dried Mediterranean herbs and leather. In the winery the young wine is aged in oak barrels for 12 months and then aged for a further 10 months in the bottle before it is deemed ready for release. This is a powerful wine that is ideal to drink now alongside game, red meats, or hearty pasta dishes, but it will also perform well if kept in the cellar over the next five to six years.
Felsina Fontalloro 2017
The Fontalloro is a classic expression of the Sangiovese grape variety which is lovingly produced by one of Tuscany’s finest estates. The grapes used in the composition of this wine are sourced from the estate’s vineyards along the border of the Chianti Classico and the Chianti Colli Senesi appellations.
While the Chianti Classico vineyards sit at the highest altitude of any of Felsina’s plots, those in the Colli Senesi sit at a lower altitude and offer a different side to the Sangiovese grape. After harvesting the grapes by hand during the autumn, the wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks and then matured in new and second use French oak barrels for up to 22 months. The final blend is then composed and the wine is aged for a further 12 months in the bottle before release.
The result is a fascinatingly complex Sangiovese which opens with hints of dried Mediterranean herbs, tobacco, blackcurrant and earth. The first sip reveals smooth tannins, a firm structure and intense dark cherry, licorice and oregano flavours which persist for a long time on the palate. The balancing acidity, bold flavour profile and excellent structure make this an ideal candidate for extended cellar ageing over the next decade or so.
Sette Ponti Oreno 2017
Oreno enjoys cult wine status among collectors and lovers of Super Tuscans and has won a slew of top scores and awards, frequently appearing in Wine Spectator’s annual Top 100 Wines list. This magnificent wine takes its name from the river which runs through the Tenuta Sette Ponti estate and gives life to the vines that grow along its banks.
Made in a polished international style, Oreno is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot which easily rivals fine Bordeaux and its higher priced Super Tuscan neighbours. Following the harvest the grapes are macerated and fermented for 25 days before being aged in French oak barrels for up to 18 months. The wine is then bottled and remains in the estate’s cellars for a further year before it is released.
In the glass the rich ruby hue delights the eye, while the nose offers generous dark berries, leather, dried violets, and hints of sunbaked earth. The first sip reveals a firm structure and rich forest fruit flavours balanced by a vivacious freshness and a smooth texture. The Oreno is an excellent wine for extended cellar ageing over the next decade or so, but it can also be enjoyed now alongside a fine steak or a succulent venison dish.
La Massa Toscana 2017
The ancient property of La Massa has been planted with vineyards since at least the 15th century. It sits in the heart of Chianti Classico in the famed “Conca d’Oro” or “Golden Basin” which is home to many of the region’s top producers. In 1991 the estate was bought by Giampaolo Motta who turned his back on his family’s leather working business in Naples to pursue his dream of winemaking in Bordeaux and then Chianti.
Giampaolo first released La Massa in 1998 as a Chianti Classico, but in 2002 he decided to declassify the wine and produce a more innovative Super Tuscan wine free from the restrictions of the appellation. Today the blend is composed of Sangiovese and Merlot with a small amount of Cabernet Sauvignon and is aged in oak barrels for 10 months before bottling.
The result is a rich, robust red that punches far above its price tag thanks to the winning combination of excellent terroir and inspired winemaking. On the nose there are inviting hints of dark berries and plums along with sweet oaky spice, while the first sip reveals a medium body bolstered by firm tannins and a long, elegant finish.
