The aromas of violets, roses and lavender are captivating. Turns to spices and hazelnuts. So complex. This full-bodied wine grows and grows on the palate, yet it remains agile and fresh. Plenty of energy in the palate. More powerful than the perfect 2015. We will see which is better in the end. Great wine. Try in 2022.
James Suckling
Wow. This is a beautiful year for Tua Rita's legendary Merlot. The grapes were harvested early, between September 4th and the 6th, and spent 21 months in barrique. This wine is a perennial overachiever, and the 2016 Redigaffi is no exception. It has a remarkable persistence to the bouquet, along with tonic crispness and a velvety mouthfeel. It's a complete and beautifully structured expression, most notable for its freshness and softness. This Redigaffi is still a bit closed, which leads me to think it is going to be a stunner when you finally retrieve it from your cellar in 5-10 years from now.

Azienda Agricola Tua Rita

The demure Tua Rita estate is located in Suvereto, a quaint medieval town found between Livorno and Grosseto. In 1984, Rita Tua and her husband, Virgilio Bisti purchased 6-hectares in southern Tuscany. They immediately planted the land to international varieties – Cabernet and Merlot. The property is now over 25-hectares, and ranks amongst the most consistent producers in Tuscany. Its first vintage was released in 1992, and this was just the start of their worldwide praise and accolades from wine connoisseurs and critics. Tua Rita’s exceptional quality and tiny nature earned it the reputation as one of Italy’s first Garagistes. A term used to describe small Bordeaux producers like Le Pin and Valandraud. Their Redigaffi Merlot has now achieved cult-like status. It was also the first Italian wine to receive a perfect score of 100-points from Robert Parker for its 2000 vintage. Tua Rita’s exciting assortment of reds and whites have almost single-handedly put this bright new zone on Italy’s winemaking map. ...

Grapes

Merlot is considered by many as the most luxurious red grape as it is known for its rich palate, velvety tannins and ample mouthfeel. Its home is originally France’s Bordeaux region and is responsible for Pomerol’s distinguished personality and firm grip (due to its unique clay soil), it also reigns supreme in St. Emilion where it provides its fleshy opulence. This seductress also has a claim to fame in some of Italy’s top bottlings, such as Masseto, Galatrona and Le Macchiole. ...

Tuscany

Tuscany

Tuscany is arguably the most famous of all Italian wine regions for not only does one have the renowned vineyards of Chianti, Montepulciano and Montalcino where Sangiovese reigns in all its forms, but it is also the land of the Super Tuscan, the cult wine style that laid the foundation of some of the greatest wines of the country. Some of the greatest bottles include Sassicaia, Tignanello, Ornellaia and Masseto. In addition to being the most famous, it is also one of the most spread out with vineyards as far north as Florence and as far southeast as the Umbrian border and as far southwest as Bolgheri and the Maremma on the Mediterranean sea. Though it is most famous for its reds, it also produces delicious whites including Vernaccia from San Gimignano and Vermentino from its vineyards closer to the sea. ...
