This wine is supremely elegant, with dark fruit, spice and a touch of Mediterranean herb. The tannins are integrated and gorgeous. This vintage was aged in 100% new oak. The winemaking team has shortened the time in wood to 24 months and increased the time in bottle to ten months. (They are aiming for 12 months in bottle with the upcoming vintages.) Still, the wine will benefit from even more time in the cellar to express itself fully. Bravi.-ML collapse

The 2015 Dedicato a Walter shows why Cabernet Franc is such an exciting variety on the Tuscan Coast. Rich and explosive in the glass, the 2015 soars with inky blue/purplish fruit, lavender, spice, mocha and wild flowers... expand The 2015 Dedicato a Walter shows why Cabernet Franc is such an exciting variety on the Tuscan Coast. Rich and explosive in the glass, the 2015 soars with inky blue/purplish fruit, lavender, spice, mocha and wild flowers. The purity of the flavors is just striking. This is another super-classic wine from Poggio al Tesoro that captures the essence of what Bolgheri is all about. -- Antonio Galloni collapse

A pretty nose that shows lots of cabernet character with eucalyptus, fresh herbs, grass and then plenty of blackcurrants, iodine and hot stones.

I love the richness to the essence-like dark fruit here with round tannins and plenty of spice undertones. A big, flavorful finish. Pure cabernet franc. Drink in 2024. collapse

Sweet ripe black cherry and blackberry fruit is matched to toasty oak and accents of licorice, tobacco and iron in this rich red. Fluid, with light tannins keeping this honest on the finish.

Poggio al Tesoro

Poggio al Tesoro is a dream come true for Marilisa Allegrini, who fell for the land and saw its exceptional value and quality. After just a few years and a great deal of hard work, Poggio al Tesoro is now a thriving 70 hectare (173 acre) estate in prime Bolgheri wine-making territory.

The Estate currently has four vineyards: two situated along the Via Bolgherese, the largest one in a village called Le Sondraie near the sea, and the fourth in the town of Bibbona.

Poggio al Tesoro owes a great deal to Marilisa’s brother Walter Allegrini, who chose the parcels of land that would constitute the current estate, aiming for diversification in terroirs and grape varieties. The estate produces wines with a distinctive personality, expressing power and complexity as well as elegance and depth.
