Poggio Al Tesoro Sondraia Bolgheri Superiore DOC 2018




Very pretty currant and chocolate aromas with hints of hazelnut and sweet tobacco. Full-bodied with round tannins and a juicy finish. Lots of structure and richness to this. Cabernet sauvignon, merlot and cabernet franc. Needs time to soften. 94 Points, James Suckling

Sondraie, from which the wine gets its name, is a great plateau from Aurelia to Bellaria in the northern side of appellation, one of the best places for Cabernet in Bolgheri. Winemaker Luca d'Attoma is considered one of the best interpreters of Cabernet Franc in Italy and this is always one of the best buys. The 2018 is tinged with violet, leafy on the nose with dark chocolate and a signature aroma of coffee powder. On the palate clove and cassis are melted and in balance. Smooth and ripe, and a touch chalky thanks to the oak tannins on the finish. Amazingly fresh. It spends 18 months in French oak, of which 2/3 new. Drinking Window 2021 - 2040 - 95 Points Decanter

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.
