Tua Rita Keir 2017
Lo más singular de este monovarietal de Syrah procedente de la Toscana es que ha permanecido 6 meses en las famosas tinajas de terracota hechas con arcilla por la familia Manetti. Se trata de la segunda añada de este vino que se muestra muy elegante, dando una versión muy agradable, fresca y expresiva de esta variedad tan internacional.

Opinión de los críticos
The 2017 Keir spends about six months in the famed terracotta amphorae made with Tuscan clay by the Manetti family, and the result is a very naked but elegant and beautiful expression of Syrah. The wine has a crisp freshness that would cut through any creamy meat dish. With creator credits owed to both the famed consulting enologist Luca D'Attoma and Tua Rita winemaker Marco Lamastra, this is a very nice, expressive and distinctive Syrah. - Monica Larner.
A serious, amphora-made syrah with berries and hazelnuts and some chocolate. Spices, too, such as chili pepper. Medium to full body. Creamy and polished tannins. Shows tension and focus. Meat. Wet earth. Very pretty. Drink or hold.
Keir 2017 was vinified in amphorae, with six months on the skins. 25% of the wine spent time in used barriques to fix the colour. It has a deep purple, youthful tone, with notes of smoke, dark blackberry and flint. The concentration is lovely, with very fine, gravelly-textured tannins and a nice juicy acidity. This wine was first made in 2014 and first released in 2016. The 2017 is a really beautiful example, made in a challenging hot and dry vintage.
