Review by Vinous; 90
"The 2014 Giusto di Notri is another striking 2014 from Tua Rita. Super-ripe black cherry, plum, menthol, lavender, sage and cloves, along with the very late, mid-October harvest resulted in a flamboyant wine loaded with personality and class. Even with all of its intensity and obvious ripeness, the 2014 has retained striking freshness and distinctly mid-weight personality. The 2014 is an unusually exotic Giusto di Notri, but it all works. Giusto di Notri is 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc"

"The 2014 Giusto di Notri is an extremely well-made wine that has most certainly exceeded vintage expectations by a long measure. The blend is Cabernets Sauvignon and Franc with a smaller part Merlot. Fruit was harvested 20 days later in 2014 compared to previous averages and the wine was aged in barrique for 22 months. This is another example of a great Tuscan red made in 2014 that has fleshed out beautifully in barrel. The dry extract here is more than 37 grams per liter. It's impossible not to notice and admire the rich thickness and textural importance of this wine. Black fruit, plum and spice fuels a luscious finish"

"Love tasting this with a real sexy character plus currants, hints of spice and cinnamon. Full to medium body. Ripe tannins. Integrated and fine. Savory acidity. 80% cabernet sauvignon, 10% cabernet franc, and 10% merlot. Drink in 2018 but hard to wait"
Review by Wine Spectator; 92
"Lush, dense and concentrated, with a top note of chocolate over the blackberry, mulberry, plum, spice and mineral flavors. Stays fresh and long, with echoes of spice and fruit on the aftertaste. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2018 through 2025. 2,000 cases made"
