Tasting notes
A rich, dark wine, with a nose of black-berried fruit, pepper and hints of eucalyptus. The palate is impressive with an imposing structure, making it both powerful and refined.

Cabernet Franc DOC W Dedicato a Walter

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.
This wine is produced from just two rows of vines covering three hectares in the Via Bolgherese vineyard. The vineyard faces west/south-west, situated just 56 metres above sea level, with coarse red sandstone and clay soil. The 24-year-old vines are spur-cordon trained, planted at 9,000 vines per hectare. The wine is named after Walter Allegrini, the late brother of Marilisa and Franco.
After de-stemming and soft pressing with partial rupture of the berries, fermentation took place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks at 28-30°C for 15 days. Malolactic fermentation occured naturally in barriques at 22°C during the month of November. The wine was aged in 100% new French barriques for 24 months before bottling.
