Winemaker Notes

A breathtaking, iconic 100% Merlot, Redigaffi is the flagship wine of the House and a benchmarkMerlot 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'soutstanding concentration and complexity. Matured 12-16 months in Allier and Tronçais oak barrelsfor exceptional smoothness. Redigaffi is unfiltered to preserve its plush aromas, and refined in thebottle to ensure the greatest elegance upon release.

Tasting NotesDeep, 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 andincense. Fullbodied, lush, with polished tannins and an extralong finish, Redigaffi is one of Italy'sgreatest Merlots. A soughtafter gem for collectors and wine lovers worldwide. A true masterpiece.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
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.
WE 96
Wine Enthusiast
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.

Tua Rita, Italy
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 case

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.
