The prodigious, unfined/unfiltered, inky/purple-colored 2000 Redigaffi (a 400-case 100% Merlot cuvee) is a wine of extraordinary distinction and intensity. It boasts a fabulous perfume of melted licorice mixed with high quality espresso roast, black cherry and currant liqueur, white flowers, and toast. Boasting great intensity, glorious ripeness, formidable purity, and a finish that lasts nearly a minute, this is the stuff of dreams! Its dry extract number is about as high as one will find in a dry red wine. Additionally, its 14.8% alcohol is incredibly well-concealed beneath the wealth of glycerin and fruit. A brilliant achievement! Kudos to winemaker Stefano Chioccioli and proprietors Rita Tua and Vegilio Bisti. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2018.||A Leonardo Locascio Selection, Winebow, Hohokus, NJ; tel.

Big and flamboyant Merlot. Intense aromas of crushed violets, with meat and smoke, as well as ripe, almost jammy fruit. Full-bodied, with big, chewy tannins and a long, smoky, berry aftertaste. Almost raisiny on the finish, but I like it. Best after 2005. 350 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.
