Poggio al Tufo is a new project in the Maremma started by Tommasi, one of the historical and leading producers of Amarone, and one of the most important quality producers in the Veneto. Seeing tremendous potential in this once swampy coastal stretch of Tuscany, the family purchased 163 acres of land there in 1997.
The Poggio al Tufo property is located in in Pitigliano, a historical Etruscan city situated about an hour north of Rome, in the province of Grosseto. The vineyards are in the Alta Maremma, lying approximately 1,000 feet above sea level, and are characterized by soils that are very rich in tufo, a particular type of volcanic rock. The Mediterranean sea, lying just 15 miles away, prevents any drastic temperature variations and provides a warm, stable microclimate for the vines. The Tommasi family has replanted the area with selected clones of both indigenous and international grape varieties.
