6 January 2017 News, the website for one of Washington State’s top radio news stations, featured the Poggio al Tufo Rompicollo in “Wine of the Week: An old resolution for the New Year.” Wine writer Scott Greenberg recommends the wine as sporting “a bouquet of mature red berries and a well -balanced structure with elegant flavors of rich plum, black raspberries and red licorice, supported on the backbone of soft tannins.

Bruce Sanderson, Italian critic and Senior Editor for the Wine Spectator, published a blog post called “12 Bargain Tuscan Wines to Buy Now.” Tommasi’s 2013 Poggio al Tufo Cabernet Sauvignon is selected as one of his picks, and the Poggio al Tufo vineyard is featured in the opening photo, with a caption that reads “Tommasi’s 2013 Cabernet harvest yielded an excellent value wine.”  Below is an excerpt from the article:

Tuscany, known for lush landscapes, rich history and storied tradition, is also home to some of the world’s finest wines. Its workhorse red grape variety, Sangiovese, flies solo in the wines of Montalcino and some versions of Chianti Classico, where by law it must comprise a minimum of 80 percent of the bottling. International varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot are also significant players in the region, bottled on their own or in blends with Sangiovese and other grapes. Overshadowed by its reds, Tuscan whites, such as those made from Vermentino, deliver crisp, minerally characteristics perfect for summer drinking. Overall, the diverse Tuscan terroir and climate match with tradition and innovation to deliver a wide range of reds and whites. The dozen releases here offer great value.
