Details of wine

The "Redigaffi" is the top wine of the Tua Rita winery. A wine of incredible elegance and superb workmanship. Almost divine expression of Merlot grapes designed and vinified individually with the aim of creating a real champion. The "Redigaffi" ormani has gained international recognition, and has become part of the small club of the great wines that are produced in this coastal area of ??Tuscany.
This precious red bears the signature of the famous oenologist Luca D 'Attoma, who in the slightly hilly terrain with the clayey, silty soil with a small skeleton, identified an area suitable for Merlot grapes only.
Applied organic farming also allowed this wine to fully represent its entire territory, absorbing the best that the soil could give it.
The "Redigaffi" is the result of a careful selection of the best grapes that are chosen as parcel by parcel. Once they have arrived in the cellar, they are sent for fermentation with indigenous yeasts exclusively in oak wood vats and maceration on the skins provides for various punching to extract the maximum concentration clearly evident in the glass. The aging of the wine lasts 18-20 months in French oak barrels, followed by a brief period of resting in the bottle.
It is a wine with a thousand facets, a wine that can satisfy the most demanding palates, a wine that can make you dream after sip.
