2008 "Redigaffi" Toscana IGT, Tua Rita
Our single-variety Merlot takes its name from a stream that runs near the estate. Redigaffi is a benchmark wine that has achieved cult status around the world. The 2000 vintage was the first wine from Italy to be awarded 100/100 by Robert Parker. Redigaffi features regularly in the catalogues of the world’s leading auctioneers, such as Christie’s and Sotheby’s, and is one of the few Italian wines included in the Liv-ex index.
Maturation: For 18-20 months in new French oak barriques; after going into bottle in the summer, the wine is left to age for several months before release to market
