When the famed Allegrini family of Veneto set their sights on the highly regarded terroir of Bolgheri in 2001, Poggio al Tesoro was born.
Their Bolgheri estate contains unique qualities that form an exceptional terroir. The winters are mild and summers last through until October. Constant breezes cool the air during the hotter months and promote the health of the grapes, while the long, sunny days influence the structure of the wines. The light here contributes to the uniqueness of this terroir: it is strong and sharp throughout the entire year. In fact, the reflection of the sun on the surface of the sea is Bolgheri's secret to phenolic ripening of the grapes.
Produced from some 64 hectares (160 acres) of carefully and meticulously tended vineyards, the wines from this estate combine strength and elegance. They are intense, deeply textured and brimming with aromas and flavours with predominant, satisfying fruitiness and silky tannins.
