New Releases from the Tuscan Coast (Jan 2021)

The 2017 Redigaffi (100% Merlot) is a classic Tua Rita wine. Rich, dense and explosive, the 2017 captures all of the natural exuberance that comes so easily in this southern part of the Tuscan coast. Inky dark fruit, chocolate, spice, new leather and spice abound. Although the 2017 is quite potent, it is also not as extracted or opulent as it can be. I would prefer to drink it over the next decade or so.
