|VERMENTINO BOLGHERI DOC
Today Bolgheri is one of the most interesting and seductive areas in Tuscany, celebrated for its history and its great wines, which over the years have created what we now call ‘the Bolgheri style’. n 2001, Marilisa Allegrini and her brother Walter were motivated by the challenge of a new project, separate from their beloved Valpolicella, set out in search of something extraordinary. They immediately fell in love with Bolgheri, its beauty, and its great potential. Their story is one of dedication and respect for the environment, and now also includes Marilisa's daughters, Carlotta and Caterina. Alongside their mother, and in honour of their beloved uncle, they carry this incredible project at Poggio al Tesoro forward and contribute to making it one of the most dynamic and significant wineries in Bolgheri. Within just a few years, Poggio al Tesoro has become one of the most dynamic wineries in Bolgheri, with wines that are distinguished by their excellence and originality and a distinct personality.
This is a 100% Bolgheri Vermentino. Its name expresses the close bond between this Mediterranean grape variety and the terroir of Bolgheri: in essence, it is the result of our hard work in vineyards and the ripening effect of the sun. This wine is a special favourite of Marilisa Allegrini. It embodies the colours, fragrances and flavours of these lands that lie so close to the sea.
Golden yellow in colour with greenish hues, Solosole opens with notes of stone fruits such as peach and apricot, followed by sulphurous and flint-like notes. It has a medium body, with generous fruit character. The finish is long, dry and zesty, especially when young. It evolves interestingly in the glass, an indication of its excellent ageing capacity.
Solosole pairs with appetizers, raw fish and, thanks to its freshness and aromatic character, fried seafood, fish stews and vegetable dishes.
