A structured and delicious great wine from Tuscany

The estate

The story began in 1984 when a couple of wine lovers bought an estate that was initially meant to be a living space close to nature, but which quickly became a winegrowing estate. And so, Tua Rita was born. Over the years and as Tua Rita wines became increasingly recognised, the estate grew from two hectares to nine, then 20, then to around 30 hectares today. Tua Rita has now become an essential reference for Tuscan wines, a major wine region in Italy.

The vineyard

The Tua Rita estate covers nearly 30 hectares in the winegrowing area of Upper Maremma (IGT), on the Val di Cornia, perfectly located between the Tyrrhenian Sea and the Metalliferous Hills of Tuscany.

The wine

Produced since 1994, Redigaffi by Tua Rita is produced from a vineyard planted on a terroir which mineral content gives the wine a rich aromatic palette mixed with a delicious salinity.

Winemaking and ageing

The grapes are manually harvested in 15kg boxes. Ageing lasts for 18 to 20 months in new French oak barrels. Following bottling, an additional ageing is carried out for several months before the wine is put on the market.

Blend

Redigaffi 2016 by Tua Rita is a 100% Merlot wine.

Parker : 98 / 100
Wine Advocate-Parker :
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.
