2008 tua rita redigaffi Super Tuscan/IGT

The 2008 Redigaffi is impeccable in its elegance and polish. Dark cherries, licorice, espresso and mocha meld together beautifully in this textured, fleshy wine.

Smoke, minerals, licorice and tar wrap around the intense finish. Redigaffi remains a unique and powerful expression of Merlot from the Tuscan coast.Antonio Galloni | 96 AGTua Rita’s Redigaffi is one of the best reds to emerge from Italy and the 2008 vintage delivers all the promise and hope of previous editions.

Put this bottle in your cellar for ten years or more.Wine Enthusiast | 96 WEA flamboyant wine that reminds me of California, with lots of ripe berries and toasty oak.

2009 tua rita redigaffi Super Tuscan/IGT

The 2009 Redigaffi bursts onto the palate with an exciting mélange of blackberries, grilled herbs, flowers, mint, rosemary and spices. It is a powerful, juicy Merlot loaded with fruit, but there is also more than enough structure to provide support. Dark notes of tar, incense and smoke add complexity on the finish. Generally I prefer Redigaffi between ages 5 and 15.Antonio Galloni | 95 AG(Tua Rita, Redigaffi, Merlot, Toscana, Tuscany, Italy, Red) The winemaker’s notes on the 2009 vintage recall ’an extremely hot summer which had to be managed using the experience we had acquired over the years.’ You can feel that heat in the aromas and flavours: brown sugar and sun-dried fruits but also floral and sweet spice notes. Despite the hot and dry conditions, I’m surprised at how good this wine is. It has such beautiful harmony on the palate, with fine tannins, a lovely flow and a seamless texture. (Drink between 2022-2040)Decanter | 95 DECLots of personality here, with aromas of black cherries, olives, seaweed, milk chocolate and salted plums. Velvety and ripe with caressing tannins. Full-bodied, mellow and supple. 100% merlot. Why wait? Drink now.James Suckling | 95 JSFrom another hot vintage, the 2009 Redigaffi reveals a very concentrated and thick personality (which also reflects the stylistic preference of these years). The bouquet is redolent of thick blackberry preserves, charred spice and syrupy blackcurrant. There is a pretty mineral note as well with a point of graphite or pencil shaving that gives the bouquet some much needed vertical lift and linearity. Again, the wine flaunts its ripeness, but like other vintages we see in this retrospective, there are no overtly oxidized aromas. This pretty 2009 Merlot ends with elegant, almost powdery tannins.Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 94 RPVery oaky, with clove, vanilla, cedar and sandalwood overlaying black cherry and raspberry flavors. There’s a bit too much oak now, and this adds to the tannins, but there’s intensity too. Needs time. Merlot. Best from 2014 through 2023. 710 cases made, 130 cases imported.Wine Spectator | 93 WS

2011 tua rita syrah Super Tuscan/IGT

The 2011 Syrah is an outstanding wine that evokes the elegance of the Rhone Valley with that of the Rhone Ranger in California. But it also shows a true Tuscan heart with warm climate tones of ripe blackberry and spice. The wine’s appearance is inky black and its long list of aromas include cured meat, barbecue spice, grilled herb, black mineral and blackberry pie. There’s even a balsamic note of cola or rosemary oil that pops at the end. You can count on a long drinking window with this gorgeous Syrah. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2035.Stefano Frascolla and Tua Rita have almost single-handedly put Suvereto on Italy’s winemaking map. His latest releases are nothing short of spectacular.Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 97 RPThe 2011 Syrah is striking in its beauty. Despite the warm, precocious vintage, the 2011 screams with varietal character as expressed in Maremma. A wine of pure volume and breadth, the 2011 is going to be a lot of fun to follow. As of this tasting, the 2011 has just been bottled, so it is quite likely the wine will show even better in another 6-12 months.Antonio Galloni | 94+ AGFascinating aromas of violets, blue slate and crushed raspberries. Full body, polished and silky tannins and a fruity, lightly wooded aftertaste. Needs time to come together, but already delicious. Better in 2015.James Suckling | 93 JS

2012 tua rita redigaffi Super Tuscan/IGT

The 2012 Redigaffi jumps from the glass with explosive dark blue/blackish fruit. Rich, voluptuous and impeccably textured in the glass, the 2012 boasts massive depth and concentration, yet retains tons of freshness. Silky tannins round out a finish laced with melted road tar, herbs and leather. For such a big wine, the Redigaffi is remarkably complex and nuanced. The 2012 was aged in 100% new, thick-staved Darnajou barrels, which are seldom seen in Italy but widely used throughout Napa Valley and elsewhere. In some recent vintages I have slightly preferred the Syrah over the Redigaffi, but in 2012 the wines are both fabulous. Simply put, the 2012 Redigaffi is a stunner.Antonio Galloni | 96 AGTen years on the Redigaffi shows it’s vibrancy with lifted aromas of savoury spice, violet and fennel. The palate is still bright yet rich with exquisite fine tannin wrapped around a core of black fruit and savoury notes of thyme and anise along with hints of stone and deep espresso.Decanter | 96 DECThis has a seductively spicy nose of anise, pink peppercorns, wild berries, mulberries, mocha and violets. Full-bodied, rich and mouth-filling, yet with wonderful freshness. Chewy tannins. Vibrant finish. 100% merlot. Drink or hold.James Suckling | 96 JSThis vintage was entirely made by Luca D’Attoma. The Tua Rita 2012 Redigaffi is another milestone vintage that opens a new chapter in the timeline of this iconic winery in Suvereto on the Tuscan Coast. Luca’s footprint is evident as those more obvious oak tones suddenly disappear, giving space to black fruit, dried plum and syrupy blackcurrant. The wine shows an inky dark color nonetheless, and although its texture is generous and elegant, Redigaffi is suddenly void of those more obvious toasted oak influences. As a result, you gain a bigger window on some of the territorial aromas of Mediterranean herb and dried berry that we will find again in the vintages to follow.Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 94 RPOne of Italy’s most acclaimed Merlots, this concentrated wine opens with scents of black currants, cedar, sage and espresso. The firmly structured but polished palate delivers dried black cherry, black pepper, coffee and licorice alongside a backbone of velvety tannins. Drink 2017–2022.Wine Enthusiast | 94 WE

2012 tua rita syrah Super Tuscan/IGT

Layers of inky, black fruit, grilled herbs, smoke, menthol and melted road tar are all layered together in the 2012 Syrah. Deep, fleshy and explosive in the glass, the Syrah is endowed with marvelous complexity and depth while remaining remarkably light on its feet for such a big wine. Hints of lavender, violets, leather and blueberry jam inform the finish. In 2012, the Syrah benefits greatly from longer macerations at lower temperatures and an overall gentler approach to extraction. The 2012 Syrah has been nothing short of remarkable on the multiple occasions I have tasted it so far.Antonio Galloni | 97 AGTua Rita makes some of the finest Syrah in Italy and the 2012 Syrah Per Sempre confirms this statement. This is a fabulous wine that is brimming with dark fruit intensity, beautifully polished spice, leather, tobacco and a playful touch of smoked bacon fat at the back. The wine delivers an exciting sense of momentum and it builds in character and determination as it glides over the palate. This gorgeous wine needs a few more years of bottle aging to complete its promising evolution.Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 94 RPAromas of dried meats, light strawberry jam and dried fruits, like Christmas pudding. Full body with round, ripe tannins and plenty of chocolate, vanilla and spice on the finish. Drink now or hold.James Suckling | 93 JSA dense, full-bodied red, this opens with aromas of blackberry jam, vanilla, oak and a whiff of herbs. The robust palate delivers fleshy black cherry, cracked black pepper, licorice and tobacco alongside velvety tannins. You’ll also the notice the heat of evident alcohol, especially on the close, which throws it somewhat off-balance.Wine Enthusiast | 90 WE

2016 tua rita giusto di notri Super Tuscan/IGT

The 2016 Giusto di Notri is a profound and dark blend of Cabernet Sauvignon with smaller parts Cabernet Franc and Merlot. It exudes gravitas and importance with every sip, showing consecutive, deep layers of minerality, dark stone, spice and rich fleshy fruit, all bound by tight structure and fiber. This wine is remarkable both in terms of texture and dimension. There is a touch of sourness on the close. This is sure to be an interesting wine to follow as it opens up over the years. Indeed, the best is still to come, as Giusto di Notri is built for long cellar aging. With the next vintage, this wine celebrates its 25th birthday.Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 97 RPThis has a wonderful texture of beautiful, ultra-fine tannins, complex character of dark fruit, currants, hazelnuts and light chocolate. Goes on for minutes. Give it three or four years of bottle age but already so delicious. Drink in 2022.James Suckling | 97 JSThe 2016 Giusto di Notri is fabulous. Spectacularly rich and explosive, the 2016 is a real thrill to taste. The intensity of the fruit it simply remarkable. It’s hard to say how long the 2016 will retain this level of voluptuousness, but today the Giusto is an arrestingly beautiful, layered wine full of character. Blackberry jam, graphite, spice, menthol and licorice infuse this dramatic, potent wine. Put simply, the 2016 is a thrill a minute.Antonio Galloni | 96 AGPure, ripe black cherry and blackberry fruit flavors are joined by Tuscan scrub and toasty oak notes in this concentrated red. Dusty tannins hold court on the finish, but this is fresh and youthful overall. Shows fine length, echoing the dark fruit elements and hints of bell pepper and spice. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2022 through 2032. 2,500 cases made, 300 cases imported.Wine Spectator | 92 WS

2018 tua rita lodano rosso toscana Super Tuscan/IGT

Blackberry and spice character – white pepper to be precise. Full-bodied, layered and chewy with a dusty texture and a black-olive undertone. It’s rich and chewy. Drink after 2022.James Suckling | 95 JSA blend of Petit Verdot and Merlot, the Tua Rita 2018 Lodano Rosso is another wine that I had tasted in a preview capacity at the beginning of this year. The wine is seamlessly integrated with dark fruit, blackberry and plum that is rounded off nicely by the smoke and tobacco from French oak and a smaller part of American oak. The Merlot is sourced from the estate’s celebrated old vines, and a theme of flashy or contemporary concentration and richness is found in this wine and throughout the estate portfolio. This vintage was cool and wet during the spring months but turned much warmer and drier toward the end of the growing season.Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 94 RPThis is one of the best expressions of Petit Verdot I have tasted in a long time. While always intriguing, the variety is often very linear and structural whereas here it has some richness, roundness and charm. It opens slowly to reveal dark fruits, gunsmoke and spice, with finely textured, silty tannins. Perhaps the old-vine Merlot helps coax this more edgy variety into showing its more sensual side. Drinking Window 2022 - 2028.Decanter | 94 DEC
