The 2016 vintage at $15 is a great value. This blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon is smooth and easily drinkable. A great weekday wine. — 2 months ago

I remember having this in the past, but don’t remember it being this good. Mind you, 2016 was a good year for Tuscany, so that may be part of it.

Poggio al Tufo is a relatively new estate in the once swampy Maremma in coastal Tuscany. Tommasi, of Amarone fame planted vineyards here in 1997. The Alicante Bouschet grape is new to Tuscany, although getting more popular. This wine is a deep purple in the glass , delivering pepper, black fruits and smoke to the palate. Tannins are still a little harsh so this will benefit from another year or two in the bottle. Interesting wine from this interesting grape.
