95 points Antonio Galloni 

The winemaker’s notes on the 2009 vintage recall ’an extremely hot summer which had to be managed using the experience we had acquired over the years.’ You can feel that heat in the aromas and flavours: brown sugar and sun-dried fruits but also floral and sweet spice notes. Despite the hot and dry conditions, I’m surprised at how good this wine is. It has such beautiful harmony on the palate, with fine tannins, a lovely flow and a seamless texture. (Drink between 2022-2040)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

From another hot vintage, the 2009 Redigaffi reveals a very concentrated and thick personality (which also reflects the stylistic preference of these years). The bouquet is redolent of thick blackberry preserves, charred spice and syrupy blackcurrant. There is a pretty mineral note as well with a point of graphite or pencil shaving that gives the bouquet some much needed vertical lift and linearity. Again, the wine flaunts its ripeness, but like other vintages we see in this retrospective, there are no overtly oxidized aromas.
