Tasting Notes

Mamma mia!  This brilliant release from Tua Rita is, quite simply, an enormous achievement.  Redigaffi is the undisputed signature wine of Tua Rita, hailing from a small plot of meticulously selected Merlot which was first planted in 1994 and is aged in small oak barrels for 18 months This Redigaffi 2015 has remarkable perfume.  It strikes the senses with a hedonistic array of spice liquorice and damson.  There are layers of woodsmoke, floral hints, mocha, dark cherry and chocolate.  Round, full and pure to the extreme, it is so opulent; it will need plenty of time to reach its apogee. And what a treat that promises to be.

100 Points, James Suckling
