Reviews for 2004 Tua Rita Redigaffi

WS 98
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, October 2006
Very complex yet subtle aromas of licorice dark chocolate violet and raspberry. Full-bodied with supersilky tannins and a long long finish. Harmonious and wonderful. Reminds me of the great 1997; even better. Merlot. Best... Very complex yet subtle aromas of licorice dark chocolate violet and raspberry. Full-bodied with supersilky tannins and a long long finish. Harmonious and wonderful. Reminds me of the great 1997; even better. Merlot. Best after 2008. 650 cases made.

Intense aromas of blueberry licorice and espresso complicated by stone and smoky black pepper nuances. Stylish and suave on entry then elegant and powerful in the middle palate offering complex pepper mineral and mocha flavors. Very ripe highly concentrated creamy wine yet quite firm and tannic on the finish. Production was down by about a thousand bottles because Frascolla was unhappy with the quality of three barriques and blended them into the '04 Giusto di Notri. Having tasted this juice directly from the suspect barrels I can assure you the Giusto di Notri has nothing to complain about!

The inky-colored 2004 Redigaffi 100% Merlot aged for 16 months in new oak offers expressive nuanced aromatics along with sensations of richly-textured blue and black jammy fruit minerals mint chocolate spices and sweet toasted oak on big powerful frame with notable underlying structure and a warm resonating finish. Although it has enough structure and acidity to drink well for another decade or so I enjoy Redigaffi most in its youth. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2016.
