During pre-harvesting the first days of September created stability into the best grape clusters then harvested. 2015 was a perfect vintage, warm but not dry or wet, ideal weather conditions for a grape variety that in fact does not love too much heat nor heavy precipitations.
It has spicy and mineral notes typical of Syrah, it is refined, elegant yet powerful and incredibly balanced.
Syrah 2015 comes from a very small selection of only 15 barriques, obtained by a manual crushing in an open vat/ barrique. Thanks to the favorable weather conditions, during vinification, it was possible to use stems which granted the contribution of elegant and delicate tannins. This wine is marked by a great complexity, it is a sequence of warm mineral notes where graphite dominates.
The soils of Tua Rita, arranged on a slight hill with a constant slope, are composed mainly of skeleton (rocks, rocks), clay, silt, sand and, above all, a rich set of mineral microelements.
This fortuitous casualty of nature nature leaves his distinctive mark on Tua Rita’s wines, bringing unique iron nuances and hints of saltiness.
