Here's a wine that defeats the odds of the difficult vintage with a firm sense of style and confidence. The 2014 Redigaffi is Merlot that benefits from the sea breezes and bright sunshine of Coastal Tuscany to downplay the soggy and cool summer growing season. The fruit tastes ripe and plump with black cherry and red currant backed by heavier tones of spice, leather and tobacco. That the wine is made with care and the upmost attention to detail is evident (one-third of production was lost due to severe fruit selection). Only 8,500 bottles were made. You can taste this in the quality of the wood and the fine tannic management. However, despite all the hard work that has very evidently gone into creating this edition of Redigaffi, this vintage fails to reach the soaring heights of its predecessors—wines that can hover near the 100-point mark in the best vintages. - Monica Larner - 28-04-2017
