Redigaffi has an intense color that arouses enthusiasm and satisfy the sight, it highlights great complexity characterized by the fruity attack in the mouth leaving then “room” to tobacco and liquorice notes. Good concentration given by the pre-harvesting activity, three passages and perfect maturation reached by our grapes.

Outstanding complexity. Floral notes typical of our “Macchia Mediterranea” are intense and persistent. The elegance of tannins is enhanced by the great structure and balance. Considerable extraction and good acidity.

The 2017 Redigaffi (100% Merlot) is a classic Tua Rita wine. Rich, dense and explosive, the 2017 captures all of the natural exuberance that comes so easily in this southern part of the Tuscan coast. Inky dark fruit, chocolate, spice, new leather and spice abound. Although the 2017 is quite potent, it is also not as extracted or opulent as it can be. I would prefer to drink it over the next decade or so.

This is powerful, from the vanilla- and coconut-scented oak to the concentrated blackberry, black currant and fruitcake flavors to the muscular tannins that support it all. Notes of Mediterranean scrub and tobacco peek through on the long finish. Best from 2023 through 2035. 900 cases made, 100 cases imported.
