Tua Rita is a winery situated in Suvereto, Tuscany. When Rita and Virgilio bought it in 1984, the land was supposed to offer just the picturesque surroundings in which they would live in touch with nature. Those original 2 hectares of vines have now become 51 hectares.
Today, what started as amusing ‘vins de garage’, are wines that are exported everywhere in the world thanks to the marketing of Rita and Virgilio’s son-in-law, Stefano Frascolla.
Deriving from the harmony of their passion for wine making and the potential that the earth provides, the philosophy of their enterprise is for uncompromised quality.
The vineyards are managed with the fundamental objective of helping the plants to protect themselves by guaranteeing, above all, the health of the soil and the environment by employing natural procedures.
Tua Rita’s land lies on a gentle, continuous slope, in that strip of land in the Alta Maremma whose name derives from the Colline Metallifere (the Tuscan mining geopark). The wines, which are of different composition, have one element in common: the personality of this earth with its ferrous notes and a penetrating and rapid, progressive development of their flavour.
