Tommasi Poggio al Tufo Maremma Cabernet Sauvignon 2008 Wine Review (NW)
Intense black cherry and charcoal on the nose
Medium bodied and roasted flavor on the palate
Moderately tannic finish with dark berries, plum, and spice
This wine is a touch exotic with charcoal and spice notes over the fruit. It's made from Cabernet Sauvignon in the Maremma region of Tuscany and is a nice alternative to similar priced Cabs from California and other "new world" regions. Retail prices hover around $18. Raise a glass!
