Grapes: Merlot/ Cabernet Franc/ Cabernet Sauvignon/ Petit Verdot
Poggio al Tesoro is a 70 hectare property in Bolgheri, Tuscany and was acquired in 2002 by the Allegrini family, famous for their Amarone produced at their Veneto mothership. 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.
This wine still seems to be a well-kept secret, and we love to share it with you whilst we can! It is intense ruby red in colour with aromas of fresh crunchy red berries and dark fruit nuances enriched with layers of tobacco and spice. The fruit follows onto the complex palate that combines elegant silky tannins and a lively finish. An excellent Bordeaux blend!
