Tua Rita: history
Tua Rita makes some of Italy’s most exciting and collectable red wines. Its story began in 1984, when Virgilio Bisti and his wife Rita Tua purchased a small two-hectare property in Suvereto in the Alta Maremma, with just half a hectare of Sangiovese.
In the beginning, their dream was simply to have a more rural life close to the land, but soon a passion for wine took over.

In 1988 two more hectares were added, planted – against the local trend – with Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon which they felt suited the site, and some of which found its way into nearby Tenuta San Guido’s Sassicaia.
