With its intense colour, Redigaffi 2016 is defined by its pure strength. Concentrated and bold, these are the characteristics of the vintage, and here they are in perfect balance. Complex, persistent, long, generous, with intense notes of cocoa, cassis mocha, dark cherry and liquorice. These very forward aromatics provide a compelling scent which leads onto an extremely well defined palate, displaying stunning focus and an extremely impressive presence. Round, full and pure to the extreme, it is so opulent; it will need plenty of time to reach its zenith.
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.
