TASTING NOTE

The black cherry and blackberry fruit in this red makes an immediate impact, ushered along by lively acidity. Harmonious and enjoyable for the lush, ripe flavors.

Reviews

"Long and flavorful"

James Suckling - "Aromas of blueberries, blackberries and flowers following through to a full body with firm and chewy tannins. A long and flavorful finish. Structured now. Needs two or three years to soften."

"Harmonious and enjoyable"

Vermentino

This single-vineyard Vermentino exhibits all of the characteristics for which Tuscan Vermentino is renowned, in particular its mineral notes, a result of the volcanic soil on which the vineyards lie. This bright, crisp wine has both wonderful freshness as well as the balanced quality typical of the varietal.

Cabernet Sauvignon

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 is located in the town of Pitigliano and benefits from a Southern exposure and volcanic soil rich in tufo, a particular type of volcanic rock, which lends a marked minerality to the wine.
