Tua Rita Per Sempre Syrah 2012
93+ points - Vinous Media
Ruby-red. Spicy, aromatic nose of red cherry, plum, herbs and smoked beef. Fresh and clean on the palate, boasting lovely clarity and cut to its dense red fruit and pepper flavors. The smooth, enticing finish is vibrant and very long. This strikes me as one of the most successful syrahs made at Tua Rita to date. This wine's new name is in honor of Vigilio Tua, the founder of this estate along with his wife Rita, who wanted this wine made; it was also his favorite in the Tua Rita lineup.
