Tasting Notes

The 2013 Giusto di Notri is a proud, proud, proud achievement. This is an enormously profound red wine that raises a noble and majestic banner that flies high above the enological coast of Tuscany. The blend is mostly Cabernet Sauvignon with smaller components of Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Merlot currently clocks in at 10% and that quota has been reduced compared to past vintages. The wine is aged in equal parts new and neutral oak. This is a gorgeous wine that surprises most of all thanks to the unexpected nature of its fine and delicate floral aromas. Yes, there's plenty of black fruit and spice at its core. That's par for the course when it comes to a wine of this important extraction, intensity and power. But that flirtatious, perfumed hint of blue flower and rose bud is its most memorable feature in my opinion. This is a very special wine.

This is focused and intense, with black currant, plum, tar and earth flavors riding the dense texture, buoyed by a vibrant structure. Balanced and long. Approachable now, but this should really hit its stride in a year or two. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2018 through 2030.

The 2013 Giusto di Notri is wonderfully vibrant and pulsating in the glass. Blue and purplish hued fruits, spices, mint and licorice are some of the notes that flesh out. Delineated and beautifully nuanced throughout, the 2013 speaks to understatement and finesse. In this vintage, the Merlot is down and the Cabernet Sauvignon is up, which, along with the personality of the year, yields a tense, vibrant wine endowed with superb energy. The purity of the fruit here is striking. Stylistically, the 2013 does a great job of reconciling the natural opulence of Suvereto with attractive elements of freshness from the cool nights that defined the late harvest.

Extremely perfumed with roses, currants and hints of lavender. Full body, firm tannins and bright acidity. Chewy and elegant. Some wood on the finish, which is lovely. Needs another two or three years to soften.
