Poggio al Tufo
This Tuscan “Super Value” is a blend of 60% Sangiovese and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and comes from a single-vineyard site in the Alta Maremma called Rompicollo. The vineyard benefits from southern exposure, ample sunlight, and a soil rich in tufo, a particular type of volcanic rock.
The grapes for this blend are primarily sourced from a single vineyard site, Rompicollo, which benefits from southern exposure and volcanic soil rich in tufo, a particular type of volcanic rock.
The wine is fermented for 10 days in stainless steel and aged for 1 year in large Slavonian oak barrels.
A deep, bright ruby red in color, on the nose it offers an elegant, varied bouquet of ripe berry fruits (such as blackberries and raspberries), dried aromatic herbs and delicate sweet spices. On the palate it is full-bodied, mellow and mouth-filling, with velvety tannins. Though richly flavored, it displays an attractive suppleness in the mouth.

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.
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.
