The Poggio al Tufo property is located in in Pitigliano, a historical Etruscan city situated about an hour north of Rome, in the province of Grosseto. The vineyards are in the Alta Maremma, lying approximately 1,000 feet above sea level, and are characterized by soils that are very rich in tufo, a particular type of volcanic rock. The Mediterranean sea, lying just 15 miles away, prevents any drastic temperature variations and provides a warm, stable microclimate for the vines. The Tommasi family has replanted the area with selected clones of both indigenous and international grape varieties.

Wine EnthusiastBlack currants and green bell pepper aromas lead the nose on this easygoing Cabernet Sauvignon from Tuscany. The soft, straightforward palate offers plum and black cherry with a hint of licorice alongside round tannins. Not an ager so enjoy soon for the best of the juicy fruit flavors.
