Goedhuis, July 2017
This brilliant release from Tua Rita is, quite simply, an enormous achievement. Redigaffi is the undisputed signature wine of Tua Rita, hailing from a small plot of meticulously selected Merlot which was first planted in 1994 and is aged in small oak barrels for 18 months. Redigaffi 2015 has a remarkable perfume. It strikes the senses with a hedonistic array of spice, liquorice and damson. There are layers of wood-smoke, floral hints, mocha, dark cherry and chocolate. Round, full and pure to the extreme, it is so opulent. It will need plenty of time to reach its apogee, and what a treat that promises to be.
Wine Advocate, November 2017,
No surprise, Tua Rita delivers yet another unbelievable edition of its legendary Merlot from Coastal Tuscany. The 2015 Redigaffi is a blockbuster, a beautiful and expressive blockbuster at that. This vintage delivers a unique level of intensity and power that is very much linked to the easily ripened fruit obtained in this warm and sunny vintage. Despite that inner bulk and power, the wine reveals an elegant sense of harmony and depth. Etched mineral or graphite notes segue to black fruit, spice, leather, mocha and toasted espresso bean. The wine is structured and firm in terms of mouthfeel. Drink Date 2018 - 2036
James Suckling, August 2017,
This is an extraordinary merlot with such purity and focus. Flowers such as violets and hints of orange peel. It is full-bodied yet incredibly energetic and structured. The finish goes on for minutes. Seamless texture. Fresh yet dense. Contrasty. Best Redigaffi ever. Hard not to drink now but a wine for decades.
Arguably the most celebrated of all Italian regions for its sun, delicious food and rich wines. Chianti lies at the heart of this centrally located, picturesque and expansive area. Tuscany is also home to Chianti's more powerful cousin, Brunello di Montalcino, illustrious Super Tuscanblends and spicy, exuberant whites.
