Poggio al Tufo is located in Tuscany’s coastal Maremma region near Pitigliano, an historical Etruscan city known for its volcanic soils rich in tufo, a specific type of volcanic rock. The estate was the first of the Tommasi Family Estates to be located outside of Valpolicella, where the historical winemaking family is based. Seeing tremendous potential in this once swampycoastal stretch of Tuscany, the Tommasi family purchased 163 acres of land there in 1997. Poggio al Tufo encompasses 3 estates in different areas of the Maremma, each with its ownunique microclimate, but all sharing the influence of volcanic soil and Mediterranean breezes.
Poggio al Tufo Cabernet Sauvignon is a wine with an exuberant and decisive character that clearly reflects the Tuscan coastal terroir from which the grapes are sourced. The Rompicollo vineyard from which the grapes hail benefits from a Southern exposure and volcanic soils, which lends a marked minerality to the wine, and classic Cabernet flavors of black fruit that take on a lovely warmth while maintaining expressive spicy freshness. This Cabernet Sauvignon comes from a single-vineyard site called Rompicollo, which benefits from a Southern exposure and a volcanic soil rich in tufo rock. The vines are densely planted (2,700 vines per acre) in or der to yield the best quality fruit.
Service Temperature: 18° C
A cabernet that flits between black peppers, beautifully fresh elderberries, lavender and violets. Medium to full body, lots of spicy undergrowth flavors and a long, chewy finish.
“Dark and concentrated, with the vibrant structure imparting fluidity. Dill, blackberry, black currant and toasted spice flavors linger, with the dusty tannins sealing the deal. Best from 2020 through 2025.” — Bruce Sanderson
