Cult Wines Australia accesses a limited supply of Tua Rita Redigaffi 2012
Cult Wines Australia the fine wine investment specialists based in Melbourne are predicting 20% annual growth for the Tua Rita Redigaffi 2012, the Super Tuscan wine which has very limited production.
This Tuscan estate of around 55 acres was acquired by owners Rita Tua and her husband, Virgilio Bisti in 1984. They set about planting a mixture of Cabernet and Merlot and in 1992 produced their very first vintage. It wasn’t too long after; that the estate started receiving praise and highly deserved accolades from the world’s leading wine critics and enthusiasts alike. Its 100% Merlot offering – Redigaffi – quickly gained a cult-like status which was cemented when the world’s pre-eminent wine critic Robert Parker Jr. awarded their 2000 vintage with a perfect score of 100 pts.
With the estate’s other offers equally high in quality, it is of no surprise that the wines of Tua Rita are some of the most difficult to find. Especially when you consider the estate’s total annual production is currently just 3400 cases, of which only 9,000 bottles (750 cases) are made of the highly regarded Redigaffi. Renowned wine critic James Suckling scored the Tue Rita Redigaffi 2012 98 points.
Investing in Italian wine provides investors with strong diversification benefits against the traditional wine investment portfolios made up of wines from Bordeaux and Burgundy. The key to investing in any blue chip wines is to buy early and buy vintages from well-respected vineyards that have a very high critic score. The 2012 Tua Rita Redigaffi is an excellent addition to any wine portfolio. The Redigaffi 2005 and 2006 has risen over 30% in two years, the 2006 which has a lower critic score than the 2012 is trading over 106% higher than the 2012 offered with it expected the 2012 will quickly close the price gap on the 2006.
On reason demand for Redigaffi is so strong is the fact only 750 cases are produced annually meaning the supply for this outstanding wine is extremely limited, most Super Tuscans produce 12,000 – 20,000 cases. Cult Wines Australia has just gained access to a limited supply of the 2012 vintage and has made this available for its clients.
Cult Wines Director Harley Salt explains further “Entering into any investment market for the first time can be a little daunting without expert help. Here at Cult Wines we like to draw on many years of fine wine and investment experience to ensure a successful wine portfolio. We strongly believe that the 2012 Redigaffi offers excellent growth prospects, especially given the market sentiment towards Super Tuscan wines. At below A$2800 for a total investment it provides new investors and collectors a great entry point to an exciting market”.
