Description

Poggio al Tesoro is a 70 hectare property in Bolgheri acquired in 2002 by the Allegrini family. The first vineyard they bought, Le Sondraie, is next door to Ornellaia and was previously rented by them. It is 50 hectares in size and is planted with Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and a small amount of Vermentino. All of the Poggio al Tesoro vineyards are located “soprastrada”, the area to the east of the Bolgherese road that is considered the best spot in Bolgheri. Soils here are complex and varied thanks to minerals brought through centuries by the Seggio stream from the nearby hillsides. A careful mapping of the soil has allowed Allegrini to plant the best variety for each plot. This attention to details continues today with a sustainable and organic approach in the vineyard and mini – vinifications in the winery, where different vessels and techniques are used in order to get the best out of each variety and each plot. This approach is evident when tasting the wines: every year the quality is improving and the wines express the uniqueness of the Bolgheri territory.

Fruit for this wine is sourced from the Le Sondraie vineyard in the port city of Livorno, on the west coast of Tuscany. The vines face west/south-west and are planted at an altitude of just 25 metres above sea level. Soils here are well-drained and composed of clay and sandy silt with a high presence of magnesium and iron. The 15-year-old vines are spur cordon and guyot trained with a very high density of planting (7,936 vines per hectare), producing low yields.

This is a fragrant and intensely fruity red wine, with aromas of blackberries, plums and cherries interwoven with white pepper and elegant herbaceous notes. This blend of Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot is a fresh, easy-drinking wine that nevertheless expresses the rich complexity of Bolgheri.
