About Tua Rita
Situated in Suvereto, south of Bolgheri on the coastline of Tuscany, the Maremma was still sparse when Rita Tua and Virgilio Bisti purchased their estate in 1984 as a vacation spot. Virgilio decided he wanted to make some wine and chose to plant the international varietals Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, which do well in Maremma’s soils that are rich in clay and silt. Those initial plantings (totaling 7.5 acres) became the source for the now revered Tua Rita Super-Tuscans, and the estate now covers just over 55 acres, and most of its vineyards are located on the mineral-rich remains of an ancient seabed. Tua Rita has remained true to its artisanal ideals and to its modest demeanor, most notably visible in the warm, grandmotherly persona of owner Rita Tua. Bearing the signature of Tua Rita’s famed consulting enologist, Luca d’Attoma, the estate’s wines remain on an upwards trajectory, delivering high quality, collectability, and seriously delicious flavor profiles.
