Tua Rita Redigaffi IGT Toscana 2006
from Tuscany, Italy
A breathtaking, iconic 100% Merlot, Redigaffi is the flagship wine of the House and a benchmark
Merlot from Italy. The perfectly manicured vineyards are planted at extreme high density –up to 3,300 vines per acre to ensure low yields and the greatest quality of the grapes. Extra long – up to 27 days maceration with the skins and manual, frequent punchdowns allow for Redigaffi's
outstanding concentration and complexity. Matured 12-16 months in Allier and Tronçais oak barrels
for exceptional smoothness. Redigaffi is unfiltered to preserve its plush aromas, and refined in the
bottle to ensure the greatest elegance upon release.
Deep, intense purple in color, with tremendous extraction, Redigaffi is a monumental and beautifully structured wine that shows how well the nonnative Merlot has adapted to the area around Suvereto on the Tuscan coast. It offers luscious layers of raspberry and blueberry jam, ripe plum and blackberry, followed by voluptuous notes of dark chocolate, licorice, black pepper, vanilla and
incense. Fullbodied, lush, with polished tannins and an extralong finish, Redigaffi is one of Italy's
greatest Merlots. A soughtafter gem for collectors and wine lovers worldwide. A true masterpiece.
"Blueberries, blackberries, grilled
herbs, minerals and French oak
emerge with tons of inner
sweetness... tons of harmony and
class all the way through to the
polished, energetic finish."
The Wine Advocate
"A cult wine and an international superstar, Redigaffi (100% Merlot) will blow you away with its richness, opulence and smoothness. Aromatic layers of milk chocolate, nutmeg, vanilla and Christmas spice peel back one thick layer after the next. This is a loudspeaker wine with extraordinary intensity and softness from start to finish."
