Poggio Al Tufo Rompicollo 2005 wine review by (PB)
This Chianti is a darker cherry red hue with solid Sangiovese bouquet even though it is a blend and the vegetal Cab aromas come out with minerally notes and some pepper.
This wine is big and steely with a sweeter fruit flavor out of the gate. this wine is really well made with nice tannins which are a just a tad coarse but should ease with air and /or age.
This is an impressive wine that is wonderfully full. black licorice comes out with some air time of 2 hours. This is a classy wine with blueberry notes and finishes well. A super value at less than $14 and worth hunting for. Raise a glass of this Tuscan value!
