ABOUT THE WINE


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 Poggio al Tesoro’s flagship wine, produced with the best grapes from the parcels on the estate. Since its creation with vintage 2003, it has garnered numerous awards from both the Italian and the international press. It has become a real Bolgheri classic in a very short space of time. This is a new kind of Supertuscan, successfully expressing the richness of an extraordinary territory, combining tension, complexity and great finesse.


TASTING NOTE:


Intense ruby red in colour, the nose opens with nuances of cherry and plum and deep notes of black berries, followed by aromatic herbs and a pleasant spiciness. It is elegant and seductive on the palate, revealing considerable body, great structure and balance, and silky tannins.


FOOD PAIRING:


Ideal with grilled and barbequed meats – Chianina beef in particular – roasted veal, spare ribs, ossobuco, and lamb or pork shanks. Excellent with smoked ricotta cheese, Parmigiano Reggiano and medium-matured pecorino.
