Tommasi Poggio al Tufo Sangiovese Cabernet Sauvignon 2010 (Italy) Add to ...

  • Rating 88
  • Year 2010
  • Food Pairing Rare lamb, beef or duck
  • Price $16.95

Tommasi is based in Veneto in the north, but the family bought an estate in the trendy Maremma district of Tuscany, from which they make this fine red, in 1997. There’s admirable tannic edge here in spite of the screwcap seal, which telegraphs early drinkability. I like the initial softness, which carries plum, spice and tobacco before the astringent tannins kick in. Try it with rare lamb, beef or duck. $21.99 in B.C.
