Whilst Redigaffi is the undisputed signature wine of Tua Rita, it is perhaps even more so in 2013. This ?perfect? vintage encouraged Stefano Frascolla and Luca D'Attoma to select 2 barrels of wine from the oldest plot of Redigaffi Merlot. This special ?Vecchie Vigne? selection has been bottled in Magnum to be released next year. In the meantime, the 2013 Redigaffi bottling is sublime. Warm, full and spicy, there is a profound depth to this wine which is wild, intense, opulent and exotic. It conveys incredible notes of morello cherry, plum, brushwood, hedgerow fruit and kirsch. The palate is both sweet and smoky; a concentration and freshness that is so beguiling with an almost salty, rocky minerality running through. The finish is dense, complex and serious, leading to a marked and lingering balsam note. All in all, this is a sumptuous, ample wine with a glorious future ahead.
