1996 Tua Rita Redigaffi Vino da Tavola - 100 pts!

Azienda Agricola Tua Rita is a leading Tuscan wine estate located just outside Suvereto in the Colline Metallifere hill country. It is best known for its single-variety IGT Toscana wine made from Merlot, Redigaffi, which has gained cult status. It is a regular feature in top global auction catalogues, and the 2000 vintage was the first Italian wine to be awarded a perfect 100-point rating by Robert Parker.

The estate was founded in 1984 by Rita Tua and her husband Virgilio Bisti, beginning with a 2-hectare (5-acre) plot at Notri. This has grown to cover 30 hectares (75 acres) of vineyards, which are farmed organically. The silty, clay- and mineral-rich soils seem to be reflected in the wines themselves, which show hints of saltiness and unique nuances of iron in the aromatics.

Wine Spectator

Wine Spectator 100 WS - Very dark ruby color. Rich and decadent, with masses of blackberry and fresh black truffle aromas. Turns to tar and licorice. Full-bodied, with big, velvety tannins and a long, long finish. Super-rich and long. Powerful and layered. Superb. Perfect. Even better than when originally tasted.--1997 Italian blind retrospective. Drink now through 2017. 200 cases made. WS
