Tua Rita, Toscana Rosso IGT (Tuscany, Italy) “Rosso dei Notri” 2017

($22, Winebow):  Tua Rita, best known for their show-stopping monovarietal Merlot called Redigaffi that routinely sells at release for $300+, makes two other wines consumers should embrace. This one, a blend of Sangiovese, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah, should be in everyone’s cellar.  It won’t stay there long because it’s delicious to drink now.  It delivers a beautiful balance of fruity and savory flavors.  Suave and fresh, it finishes with a lovely hint of bitterness, which makes it a perfect choice for a rich tomato-based sauce for pasta.  It’s a great bargain.  Stock up for your next two weeks of quarantine.
