Tua Rita Syrah 2016

Hand-crafted by the esteemed winemaker Luca d'Attoma, Tua Rita Syrah is a beautiful expression of this noble variety. Yields are kept to a minimum to ensure flavor concentration. Remarkably layered and complex, this Syrah is pure harmony in the glass and a must-have for every collector of fine Tuscan wines.

Tasting Notes

Deep garnet in color, notes of ripe blackberries and plums complement undertones of figs, black pepper, and violets. On the palate, it is full-bodied with silky tannins and flavors that unfold into the lush finish. 

Food Pairing

Pair this wine with Moroccan lamb stew, champignon sauces, grilled venison, or pork chops with a rhubarb-cherry sauce.
