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
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.
"Shows violet, cream, mineral, mint and blueberry on the nose. Full-bodied, with fabulous fruit and polished, velvety tannins. The finish lasts for minutes. The balance is wonderful. Deep and beautiful. Hard not to drink now. Merlot. Best after 2012. 830 cases made. "
"The 2007 Redigaffi (Merlot) is totally seamless in its opulent dark plums, blackberries, chocolate, new leather and French oak. The wine turns deeper and richer in the glass, showing off its considerable structure, depth and richness. Over time, the clarity and inner perfume come to life, rounding out this magnificent Redigaffi. The 2007 is a Redigaffi built on understated elegance rather than sheer power. Silky tannins frame a long, refined finish. This is a wonderful effort from Tua Rita. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020."
