August - Wine of the Week

2014 Tommasi Poggio al Tufo "Rompicollo"

Tuscany, Italy

True "Super-Tuscan" bargains are getting harder and harder to find, but this week we've found you a 92 Point show-stopper from a renowned producer for less than $15 a bottle! Incredibly this sublime blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon comes from a single vineyard in the Maremma region, the very same area that's home to the great Ornellaia, Sassica and other legends of Tuscany. The estate, founded by the Tommasi family, takes full advantage of the region's volcanic soils to craft a beautifully concentrated, silky-smooth wine that's both powerful and approachable. Italian wine expert James Suckling calls this irresistible and opulent blend "rich and flavorful" and we think the 2014 Tommasi Poggio al Tufo "Rompicollo" is easily the best buy we have seen in a Super Tuscan this year -- please call us or email to reserve yours on sale while it lasts!

"A rich red for the vintage with chocolate, berry and walnut character. Medium to full body, soft tannins and a flavorful finish. Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon."

92 points, Antonio Galloni's Vinous
