Winemaker Notes

Deep, intense purple in color, with tremendous extraction, Redigaffi is a monumental and beautifullystructured wine that shows how well the nonnativeMerlot has adapted to the area around Suveretoon the Tuscan coast. It offers luscious layers of raspberry and blueberry jam, ripe plum andblackberry, followed by voluptuous notes of dark chocolate, licorice, black pepper, vanilla andincense. Fullbodied,lush, with polished tannins and an extralongfinish, Redigaffi is one of Italy'sgreatest Merlots. A soughtaftergem for collectors and wine lovers worldwide. A true masterpiece.

Critical Acclaim

WS 98
Wine Spectator

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.

RP 95
The Wine Advocate

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.

Tua Rita
Suvereto is a small, medieval town in the province of Livorno. The estate was acquired by Rita Tua and Virgilio Bisti in 1984. Additional vineyards were planted in 1988, 1997 and 1998 which means that fans of these limited wines can look forward to an increase in production as soon as the newest vines bear fruit.

This tiny Tuscan estate has been the recipient of constant accolades for the explosively rich, full bodied wines produced.... View More
