2016 Redigaffi, Tua Rita, Tuscany, Italy
Linear and fine tannins with beautiful freshness and intensity. Full-bodied, layered and very long. Tight and impressive. Dead serious finish! Hard to beat the 100-point 2015, but who knows? 100% merlot.
97-98 Points, James Suckling
“The wines are not to be missed” Robert Parker
Tua Rita continues its inexorable rise to the top of Italy’s most collectable estates. 2016 will go down in history as one of the great vintages in Tuscany, where quality looks to have surpassed even the exceptional 2015s. Proprietor, Stefano Frascolla, is extremely pleased with the overall power and precision of the vintage, which he compares to the superlative 2001 and 2007 vintages. Overall, the wines express stunning perfume and elegance, despite their obvious structural power.
