    No surprise, Tua Rita delivers yet another unbelievable edition of its legendary Merlot from Coastal Tuscany. The 2015 Redigaffi is a blockbuster, a beautiful and expressive blockbuster at that. This vintage delivers a unique level of intensity and power that is very much linked to the easily ripened fruit obtained in this warm and sunny vintage. Despite that inner bulk and power, the wine reveals an elegant sense of harmony and depth. Etched mineral or graphite notes segue to black fruit, spice, leather, mocha and toasted espresso bean. The wine is structured and firm in terms of mouthfeel.

    This is an extraordinary merlot with such purity and focus. Flowers such as violets and hints of orange peel. It is full-bodied yet incredibly energetic and structured. The finish goes on for minutes. Seamless texture. Fresh yet dense. Contrasty. Best Redigaffi ever. Hard not to drink now but a wine for decades.

    This has a youthful nose dominated by exotic oak notes of cedar, incense, cigar box and cinnamon, interlaced with bright floral notes of violets, ripe blackcurrants and cream. It shows fantastic precision and intensity of flavour and aroma, with beautifully refined tannins, huge concentration and a seductively silky texture, gliding effortlessly across the palate. This wine is still very much a baby, but is already an obvious beauty! This 2015 vintage has everything going for it; it's so seductive and is approachable young, but will benefit from cellaring and will last for at least 20 years or more. Drinking Window 2019 - 2040

    Lush and polished, featuring a cashmere texture caressing vanilla, chocolate, black cherry and plum flavors. Well-balanced, with a persistent finish. The harmony hides a solid structure. Decant now. Merlot. Best from 2020 through 2032.
