Wine writer Mike Muckian of the Wisconsin Gazette featured these two Tommasi wines in “Top-shelf reds pair well with grilled meats.” Mike recommends the Rompicollo and Ripasso as two wines that can “add a little Italian flare to your summer fun” and pair well with grilled meats for summer barbequing. He notes the Poggio al Tufo Rompicollo “captures flavors of chocolate and berries on its supple palate, its well-maintained tannins delivering a satisfying finish.” Mike notes the process through which Ripasso is produced and the blend of grapes in this vintage, finally noting “this may be the wine your guests will be talking about long after the coals are cold and the party is over.” Click the image to view the article!
