Family owned – unique terroir
Taken over by the Tomassi family in 1997, the estate of Poggio Al Tufo is situated in the town of Pitigliano in southern Tuscany.
The name of the estate is a reference to the unique terroirs of the region, loosely translating to English as ‘the hill on volcanic soil’.
As well as the ‘tufo’ filled soil, the terroir of the estate is aided by the presence of the Mediterranean Sea just 25 kilometres away. The influence of the sea prevents drastic temperature variations, allowing the vines to flower and ripen early, aiding the production of zingy, fresh wines such as their signature Vermentino.
A delicious blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon, expressing Mediterranean notes of dried herbs and juicy cherries, hints of liquorice, full bodied but balanced.
