Winemaker's Tasting Notes
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.
From Ian Blackburn - Wine Consultant
This 2016 (a historic harvest) is deeply colored, dense, and an abundantly structured wine - classic cabernet notes with a seem of perfect Tuscan coast terroir. The distributor cut the price and we are passing this on to you with a great deal. Under $20 this is a total steal! Love the nose... love the mouth... love another glass.
