97 points Falstaff: "Bright, rich ruby colour. Intense, fine nose with notes of blackberry, wild raspberry, mint and Mediterranean herbs. The palate is characterised by hearty, dense tannins, entwined with lots of sweet texture, fine spice on the back of the palate, finishes with sweet tobacco, but also needs some time. (9/9/22)"

96 points Monica Larner (Wine Advocate): "I tasted this wine a few times over the course of about four months, and it is lovely to see how well it has taken to bottle. The Tua Rita 2020 Redigaffi is the estate's headline wine made with Merlot. The bouquet sings with dark fruit, dried apricot, spice, leather and campfire ash. You taste that extra richness and concentration in this full-bodied red. On the palate, Redigaffi is soft and accessible with rich layering and texture. Drink: 2024-2042. (May 2023)"

96 points James Suckling: "This has aromas of cigar box, black plums, cherries, mocha and toasted walnuts. Full-bodied with firm, tight and chewy tannins. Structured and deep with polished oak-spice character. Tight for now. Yet very fine and elegant. Finesse for Redigaffi. Give it a few years to show you even more. 100% merlot. Try in 2026. (2/6/23)"

95 points Wine Spectator: "[$330 list] This luscious, silky red is introduced by deep aromas of black cherry and blackberry, with hints of chocolate, coffee, vanilla and mineral coming into play as this builds to a long, complex aftertaste. Despite its richness, this has finesse and detail, too. Merlot. Best from 2025 through 2042. 1,250 cases made, 120 cases imported. (2023)"

95 points Clive Pursehouse (Decanter): "The Redigaffi from Tua Rita is one of the most consistently decorated Merlots in the wine world. The 2020 vintage produced lower yields in Tuscany but wines of a very high quality. This pedigreed Merlot from Tua Rita offers abundant aromas of white pepper, barrel spice, vanilla and dusty black fruit. The palate is fruit-forward with late-season blackberry, black cherry and chocolate. The wine pulls of the higher alcohol without a hint of notice. Drinking Window: 2022-2045. (Nov 2022)"
