2002 Redigaffi from Tua Rita

Exemplifying the height of Tuscan wine artistry, the 2002 Redigaffi from Tua Rita well deserves its accolades. To appreciate the magic of this vintage, one must reflect on the climatic anomalies of that year. A wonderfully warm and temperate winter was followed by uniquely harmonious summer conditions, offering a responsive gestation period for the ripening Merlot grapes of this renowned Italian single-vineyard.


A Masterpiece in a Glass

Under these unique circumstances, the inherent diligence of Tua Rita came to the fore, crafting an exceptional wine that resonates with resilience and power. Brimming with rich, muscular flavours, paced by its lopsided rainfall distribution over the growing season, 2002 Redigaffi is a beautifully balanced investment.

The presence of ripe black fruit reaffirms its concentrated delivery; figs and black cherries blend harmoniously within a velvety texture. Overtones of coffee and sweet vanilla emanate from strategic oak aging, fostering a nuanced complexity that stimulates sophisticated palates.


Ruby Elegance Shaped by Nature

The peculiar weather conditions registered in 2002 manifest through the wine's prominent earthiness; an uncanny expression of soil integrity that enhances the overall vinous experience. Its impressively long finish lingers like a musical note holding onto its echo; encapsulating quintessential traits of fine wines from Italy.

This masterpiece reflects Tua Rita's reputation, seamlessly embodying its dedication to quality and finesse. The result is not just a bottle of wine but an exquisite testament to Italian winemaking prowess expressed through a unique vintage.

All considered, 2002 Redigaffi offers optimal value addition to any investment portfolio, underlined by a favourable growing season that delivered one of the finest expressions of the Tua Rita terroir. Repeat performances of such ideal conditions are rare in winemaking; thus, each bottle captures a distinct moment in time worth treasuring.
