Average critic rating : 93.0 points



The 100% Merlot 1994 Redigaffi is awesome. I suspect the likes of Christian Moueix and Michel Rolland from Pomerol would be thrilled to taste this wine as it possesses the quintessential Merlot characteristics - chocolate, mocha, jammy black-cherries, and toast, as well as subtle herbs. This wine is extraordinarily rich, full-bodied, opulent, and, as my enthusiastic notes read, "great stuff." With full body, low acidity, luscious layers of chewy, jammy fruit, and a finish that lasts for over 30 seconds, this terrific Merlot rivals the sensational Merlot of Castella di Ama and Ornellaia's Masseto. It should drink well for 12-15+ years.||Tua Rita's 7.5 acre vineyard was a source for the Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot used in the blend at Sassicaia until Tua Rita began to estate bottle in 1992. Approximately 400 cases of the Giusto dei Notri are produced from a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot. The wine is aged for 14 months in French oak barrels, of which 50% are new, and bottled without fining or filtration. Only 125 cases of the 100% Merlot, Redigaffi, are produced. It, too, is aged in 50% new French oak, and is bottled without fining or filtration. Both wines are stunning ... and keep in mind that the two I tasted were from a relatively difficult, rain-plagued vintage. Thus it is easy to imagine how extraordinary the 1995s might be.||A Leonardo Lo Cascio Selection, Winebow, Hohokus, NJ; tel. (201) 445-0620 Wine Advocate.August, 1997

Tua Rita is located in Notri in Suvereto, one of the warmer microclimates in Italy. The estate covers over 50 hectares, with 30 taken up by vines. This is one of Tuscany’s leading properties.
