Tasting notes
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.

Producer
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.
Vineyards
Fruit for this wine is sourced from the Le Sondraie vineyard. 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 vines are spur cordon trained with a very high density of planting (7,936 vines per hectare) producing low yields.
Vinification
After destemming and soft pressing, fermentation took place in stainless-steel tanks at temperatures of 26-28°C for 12 days. Following malolactic fermentation, the wine was transferred to second-use French oak barriques where it was aged for eight months.
