Vinous | Rating: 95Just bottled a few weeks ago, the 2016 Redigafi is rich, powerful and explosive, with serious depth and volume in all of its dimensions. A host of chocolate, mocha, espresso, licorice and smoke overtones give the wine nuance to match its intense, super-ripe purplish and black-fleshed fruit.Drink Dates: 2020 - 2030Author: Antonio GalloniIssue: Apr 2018
Wine Advocate | Rating: 97No 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 Dates: 2018 - 2036Author: Monica LarnerIssue: Interim End of November 2017
James Suckling | Rating: 100This is an extremely intense and dense Redigaffi yet it remains lively and agile. Full body and powerful tannins that are polished and long. It goes on for minutes. So compacted and structured but always reserved. Acid balance is just right. Can't wait to taste it in bottle. Made from organic grapes.Author: James SucklingIssue: 20 Oct, 2017
Rita Tua and her husband Virgilio Bisti bought their property in 1984 and planted 45 acres of the clay and silt soil to Cabernet and Merlot. Stefano Chioccioli presides over winemaking and produces just 3,400 cases annually, making Tua Rita wines some of the most difficult finds in Italy.
