92 Points from James Suckling and considered one of the best values in Tuscany, the Poggio al Tufo Rompicolllo is one of the most impressive Italian wines of the year. Celebrating a 110-year tradition of growing Cabernet Sauvignon & Sangiovese, the Tommasi estate, whose name translates to "volcanic rock hill," is located in the south-west corner of the famed Maremma. Some of Italy's best wines: Sassicaia, Solaia, and Ornellaia are Cabernet Sauvignon based, and neighbors with Tommasi in the Maremma. Rompicolllo balances power and elegance, with a Burgundian sense of style and grace, showcasing complex aromas of dark cherry, blackberry, and cassis. Not to mention, the 2018 vintage could be the best ever. A perfect pairing for a traditional Sunday Italian dinner!
"Ripe and plummy with a pleasant red-licorice note on the nose. Medium-bodied with a silky, spicy fruit core that pushes and pushes through the long finish, thanks to some citrusy acidity. The fine tannins play a good, supporting role. A delicious blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon." James Suckling, 92 Points
