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.
Cassiopea is a rosé with character, expressing both complexity and simple enjoyment. Salmon-pink in colour with a fresh, lively perfume of fragrant spices and woodland berries. Its distinctive aroma blends well with its crisp flavour and easy-drinking style. On the palate, it is crisp but with enough structure to work well not only as an aperitif but also paired with a range of dishes.
Bolgheri Rosato DOC Cassiopea
The grapes for this wines were sourced from 3 hectares of Le Sondraie vineyard situated 25 metres above sea level. Exposition is to the west. Soils here are free-draining and a mixture of clay and sandy silt with a high presence of magnesium and iron. Planting density is nearly 8000 vines per hectare. The vines are trained to the Guyot system and spur pruned and the age of the vines is 12 years. Yields are around 63 hectolitres per hectare.
After soft, whole bunch pressing, the must was fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks at 14ºC – 16ºC degrees for 20 days. No malolactic fermentation was allowed to take place and the wine remained on the fine lees until bottling to add complexity.
