Ratings and Tasting Notes:
(JS=99-100) This 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. The acid balance is just right. Can't wait to taste it in the bottle. Made from organic grapes.
(RP=97) No 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.
(AG=95) Just bottled a few weeks ago, the 2015 Redigafi is rich, powerful and explosive, with serious depth and volume in all of its dimensions. A host of chocolate, mocha, espresso, liquorice and smoke overtones give the wine nuance to match its intense, super-ripe purplish and black-fleshed fruit.
(WS=95) Lush and polished, featuring a cashmere texture caressing vanilla, chocolate, black cherry and plum flavours. Well-balanced, with a persistent finish. The harmony hides a solid structure. Decant now. Merlot. Best from 2020 through 2032. 1,000 cases made
