Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 31/12/2002

The prodigious, unfined/unfiltered, inky/purple-colored 2000 Redigaffi (a 400-case 100% Merlot cuvee) is a wine of extraordinary distinction and intensity. It boasts a fabulous perfume of melted licorice mixed with high quality espresso roast, black cherry and currant liqueur, white flowers, and toast. Boasting great intensity, glorious ripeness, formidable purity, and a finish that lasts nearly a minute, this is the stuff of dreams! Its dry extract number is about as high as one will find in a dry red wine. Additionally, its 14.8% alcohol is incredibly well-concealed beneath the wealth of glycerin and fruit. A brilliant achievement! Kudos to winemaker Stefano Chioccioli and proprietors Rita Tua and Vegilio Bisti. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2018. (100)

Big and flamboyant Merlot. Intense aromas of crushed violets, with meat and smoke, as well as ripe, almost jammy fruit. Full-bodied, with big, chewy tannins and a long, smoky, berry aftertaste. Almost raisiny on the finish, but I like it. Best after 2005. 350 cases made. James Suckling
