Bright straw yellow in colour, this Vermentino opens on the nose with aromas reminiscent of white flowers and yellow plums. This medium-bodied wine has a succulent palate with refreshing acidity and delicate apricot notes on the finish.
Vermentino Bolgheri DOC Solosole
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.
The grapes for Solosole are grown on seven hectares of the ‘Le Sondraia’ vineyard, at an altitude of 25 metres above sea level. The west-facing vineyard has deep soils made up of sand, gravel and clay. The vines are trained in Guyot style and are planted at 7,936 vines per hectare.
The grapes were hand harvested and sorted on arrival at the winery. The whole grapes were then gently pressed and fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks at approximately 16° C for 20 days. No malolactic fermentation took place and the wine remained in tank on fine lees before bottling.
