94 points James Suckling
"A cabernet that flits between black peppers, beautifully fresh elderberries, lavender and violets. Medium to full body, lots of spicy undergrowth flavors and a long, chewy finish."
91 points Wine Spectator
"Dark and concentrated, with the vibrant structure imparting fluidity. Dill, blackberry, black currant and toasted spice flavors linger, with the dusty tannins sealing the deal. Best from 2020 through 2025." *Smart Buy*
Vinous Reverie Notes
The Poggio al Tufo Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 comes from the Rompicollo vineyard in Pitigliano, a town near the Tuscan coast known for its volcanic soil which contains a high concentration of tufo, a particular type of volcanic rock. The wine is a deep ruby red and opens with complex aromas of blackberry jam, black pepper, licorice, vanilla, and balsamic herbs. The palate is enveloping and full-bodied, with velvety tannins integrated with a pleasant freshness.
