1999 Tua Rita "Redigaffi" Toscano Rosso

SKU #1126972 99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 250-case cuvee of 100% Merlot, the 1999 Redigaffi has an astonishing 36 grams per liter of dry extract, which exceeds most top Pomerols in a great vintage! Unfined and unfiltered, it is as close to perfection as a wine can get. The color is a deep saturated blue/purple. The powerful, pure nose offers smoke, licorice, black cherry, and blackberries. It boasts awesome concentration, a fabulously dense, viscous mid-section, and a finish that lasts for nearly a minute. This is riveting juice. (RP) Inner quote mark (10/2001)

97 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This is chewy and fruity with mineral and floral character. It's full-bodied, with dark fruits, minerals and fresh tobacco; almost mushroom undertones. Inner quote mark (6/2016)

95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This wine is at the top of its class in a new generation of super Tuscan producers. Plush and velvety, it opens with rich aromas of chocolate, cherry, peppercorn, black fruit and cola. Thick extraction sets the tone for a lush wine that requires a few more years in the bottle. Inner quote mark (4/2008)

95 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Beautiful aromas of blackberry, dried currant and Indian spices follow through to a full body, with fine tannins and a long, caressing finish. Wonderful texture. Focused, refined aftertaste of blackberry, brown sugar and spices. Merlot. Inner quote mark (10/2007)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Dark red with purple highlights. Very pure, highly complex aromas of black currant, blackberry, violet, espresso and dark chocolate, with the telltale licorice component of this wine. Rich yet lithe on the palate, with juicy black and red fruit flavors complicated by black truffle and minerals. Extremely long, silky-smooth finish features seamless tannins. Inner quote mark (8/2007)
