The winery released its first vintage in 1992 and soon began receiving praise and accolades from wine enthusiasts worldwide for its rich, full-bodied wines. In just five short years, its 100% Merlot (Redigaffi) had achieved cult-like status, receiving outstanding ratings from the world’s most prestigious wine critics and publications. Critic Robert M.

Yields of this fruit were down by 40% in this hot vintage so an early harvest was scheduled in order to avoid any jammy notes. (The rest of the fruit that didn't pass the early selection at harvest went into some of the estate's lower-tier wines, such as the Rosso dei Notri.) The result here is a fresh and crunchy red to match with a cheesy pasta such as cacio e pepe.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003ePurchase the 2017 Perlato del Bosco here: \u003ca href=\"https:\/\/sunfishcellars.com\/products\/tuaritaperlatodelboscorosso2015\"\u003ehttps:\/\/sunfishcellars.com\/products\/tuaritaperlatodelboscorosso2015 \u003c\/a\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003e2014 Tua Rita Giusto di Notri, $78.99 \u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThe 2014 Giusto di Notri is an extremely well-made wine that has most certainly exceeded vintage expectations by a long measure.
