Winemaker Notes

Redigaffi has an intense color that arouses enthusiasm and satisfy the sight, it highlights great complexity characterized by the fruity attack in the mouth leaving then “room” to tobacco and liquorice notes. Good concentration given by the pre-harvesting activity, three passages and perfect maturation reached by our grapes. Outstanding complexity. Floral notes typical of our “Macchia Mediterranea” are intense and persistent. The elegance of tannins is enhanced by the great structure and balance. Considerable extraction and good acidity.

RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

With abundant rain and below average temperatures, this is wildly recognized as a very challenging vintage in Tuscany. Tasted today with so many years of bottle age under its belt, the Tua Rita 2002 Redigaffi is a delightful surprise. Like the 2014 vintage—another underdog that was met with low expectations—this wine from 2002 has a lot going for it. The mouthfeel is compact and lean (similar to the 1996), but it is balanced and fresh. Cool vintage tones of cassis, dried raspberry and candied lilac emerge from this medium-bodied Merlot.

D 92
Decanter
The 2002 vintage had a very cold, rainy, spring, and harvest was interrupted by rain showers. At Tua Rita they had to perform strict bunch selection to obtain a decent structure. The wine has a restrained nose with lots of sweet oak-spice and dark fruits of the forest and forest floor notes. It still feels closed on the palate, with moderate intensity and concentration, especially compared to the 2001, showing cedar, spice, bramble and semi-ripe blackberry flavours. It's a robust, firmly structured wine in a more traditional style.

Tua Rita  Winery Image

Rita Tua and her husband, Virgilio Bisti, bought approximately 37.5 acres of land in 1984 and planted it with Cabernet and Merlot. They later purchased an additional 17.5 acres of land, bringing the total estate to 55 acres, of which about 45 are planted with vines. The winery released its first vintage in 1992, and soon began receiving praise and accolades from wine enthusiasts worldwide for its rich, full-bodied wines. In just five short years, its 100% Merlot had achieved cult-like status, receiving outstanding ratings from the world’s most prestigious wine critics and publications. Critic Robert M. Parker Jr. said the 1999 Redigaffi was “as close to perfection as a wine can get.” The following year, he gave the 2000 Redigaffi a perfect 100 score. The winery’s Bordeaux blend, Giusti di Notri, also garners near-universal praise. Little wonder that Tua Rita’s wines are considered among the most difficult to find in Italy. Tua Rita is located in Suvereto, a small medieval town in the Tuscan province of Livorno, on the coast south of Bolgheri. The winery lies at just 300 feet above sea level, on clay, silty soil. Luca D'Attoma, the estate’s winemaker, keeps yields to a minimum to ensure concentration of flavors. The estate’s total annual production is currently just 3400 cases.

Legendary in Italy for its Renaissance art and striking landscape, Tuscany is also home to many of the country’s best red wines. Sangiovese reigns supreme here, as either the single varietal, or a dominant player, in almost all of Tuscany’s best.

A remarkable Chianti, named for its region of origin, will have a bright acidity, supple tannins and plenty of cherry fruit character. From the hills and valleys surrounding the medieval village of Montalcino, come the distinguished and age-worthy wines based on Brunello (Sangiovese). Earning global acclaim since the 1970s, the Tuscan Blends are composed solely of international grape varieties or a mix of international and Sangiovese. The wine called Vine Nobile di Montepulciano, composed of Prognolo Gentile (Sangiovese) and is recognized both for finesse and power.
