1996 Redigaffi Tua Rita

Size Availability? price? Qty

Average critic rating : 93.5 points



The 1996 Redigaffi vino da tavola is a 100% Merlot made from yields of approximately 2 tons of fruit per acre. The first word in my tasting notes is "wow!" An explosive nose of cherry liqueur, smoke, coffee, vanillin, and other jammy black fruits is followed by a superbly delineated, rich, layered, multifaceted wine with full body, exceptional purity and concentration, a voluptuous texture, and a powerful, blockbuster finish. The high level of extract and richness conceals lofty tannin and alcohol. This wine can be drunk, but it promises to be even better in 4-5 years; it will last for 12-15 years.||A Leonardo Locasio Selection, Winebow, Hohokus, NJ; tel.

A Tuscan rendition of a top-growth St.-Emilion. Fabulous aromas of currant, lead pencil and raspberry. Full-bodied, beautifully crafted, with polished tannins and a long mint, berry and cherry finish. Made from Merlot. 250 cases made. James Suckling, Winespectator.com

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.
