Tommasi Poggio Al Tufo Vigneto Rompicollo 2005 IGT

This is the second time I've had this red wine from Maremma, Tuscany (actually the first time was a 2004). Called Tommasi Poggio Al Tufo Rompicollo, this Supertuscan is 60% Sangiovese and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon. This time it was a little sharper at first, but within an hour or so opened very nicely with extremely fruity aromas and flavors of ripe cherries, pepper, oak and licorice. Paired well with a tagliere of prosciutto, speck, gorgonzola and smoked gouda cheeses at Uvarara.
