    • "Solosole" Vermentino Bolgheri DOC 2018

      “Solosole” Vermentino Bolgheri DOC 2018

      SoloSole is a West Tuscan Vermentino in pure culture and shines with a rich, full-bodied taste as well as a beautiful spice and acidity. A characterful and profound white wine from the distinguished DOC Bolgheri and one of our absolute favourites. SUPERIORE.DE

      "I’m loving the attractive floral notes here of honeysuckle, peonies and jasmine, not to mention the nutmeg, juniper berries and white pepper lurking beneath. The density of the medium-bodied palate creates a lovely perception of texture, and this ends vibrant but quite deep." James Suckling

      "This is absolutely one of my favorite Vermentino wines from the Tuscan Coast. It is made by Marilisa Allegrini and her consulting enologist Luca D'Attoma. You get so much freshness and varietal purity in the 2018 Bolgheri Vermentino Solosole, with lemongrass, grapefruit and green tropical fruit like papaya and mango. The aromas are expertly delineated and crystalline. The value is unbeatable." Robert Parker

      Pagus Cerbaia is a first class small plot of land with sedimentary soils. This is where the small quantities of Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon come from, some of which are fermented in amphorae and oak barrels after harvesting. The "Selection Rosato", bottled in only a few hundred bottles, offers an intense floral aroma and captivates the palate in a lively and cheerful way with a persistent spicy note and a wonderfully complex finish.

    • "Solosole Pagus Camilla" Vermentino Bolgheri DOC 2015

      “Solosole Pagus Camilla” Vermentino Bolgheri DOC 2015

      Pagus Camilla comes from a small plot called "Camilla" near the Sondraia vineyards. Here the Vermentino grape experiences a higher concentration during maturation with delicate hints of Riesling. This "project wine", produced in very small quantities, is a unique example of the potential of this grape variety in Bolgheri. Pure and beautiful, citrus aroma, salt, minerality and with full fruit, balanced and long. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Smells complexly of ripe pears and Mediterranean Macchia, on the palate roundly, with pithy acidity and, nevertheless, also much strength, smooth and pleasantly herbaceous the exit. "Opulent Vermentino that can also mature. Vinum

      "Poggio al Tesoro’s top Vermentino comes from the Sandraia vineyard, close to the Camilla River in coastal Bolgheri. The grapes are taken from a specific west-facing part of the vineyard on deep, sandy soils with gravel and clay. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel and the wine remains in tank on its lees for nine months before bottling. Just 4,000 cases were produced in 2015, which is regarded as an exceptional vintage in Bolgheri. This is certainly a step up from the entry level Solosole, and provides a richer style with more aroma, minerality, structure and intensity. On the palate it provides well judged white stone fruits and ripe peach alongside a savoury, almond-like lees character. There's excellent balance and harmony here throughout, and the finish is impressively long." Decanter

      "This is a selection of the best grapes from the estate on the coast of Tuscany. It shows a beautiful length and refinement yet a wonderful dense palate and plenty of fruit and structure. Love the sliced-pear, lilac and apple character. One of the best vermentinos I have tasted." James Suckling

      "Poggio Al Tesoro has recently dedicated extra resources and effort to shaping their unique identity for the Vermentino grape. The 2015 Bolgheri Vermentino Solosole Pagus Camilla pushes the boundaries one step further. Often considered a work horse grape for easy-sipping summer drinking, this wine shows the depth and fruity creaminess that can be achieved with this versatile Italian grape. The bouquet offers beautiful tones of stone fruit, cantaloupe melon and passion fruit. This is a lovely wine." Robert Parker

      “Teos” Petit Manseng Passito Toscana 2014 · in OWC

      This Trockenbeerenauslese from Petit Manseng is a rarity in the smallest edition of not even 1,000 bottles. The overripe, dried grapes are only harvested at the end of November/beginning of December and pressed to this very fine and highly elegant Passito. A deep golden yellow, rich bouquet with aromas of pickled fruits such as apricots and mild spices, on the palate a rich, fully ripe fruit with pleasant sweetness and harmonious, citrus acidity. Remarkably long and persistent. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Packaged in a 375-milliliter bottle, the 2014 Teos is a pure expression of Petit Manseng made with air-dried grapes. This delicate dessert wine opens to a golden amber color, with notes of honey and toasted chestnut. The acidity in this passito is very high and is the wine's winning card. The process used to make this wine is similar to Recito di Soave, with one month of appassimento in plastic crates." Robert Parker

    • "Dedicato a Walter" Bolgheri Superiore DOC 2015

      “Dedicato a Walter” Bolgheri Superiore DOC 2015

      Dedicato a Walter - in memory of Walter. Marilisa and Franco Allegrini dedicated this pure Cabernet Franc from their own vineyards on the Via Bolgherese to their oldest brother, who died in 2003. The 2015 vintage marks the beginning of an even more radical focus on the terroir and the quality of the grapes. The result is a Bolgheri Superiore of own grapes from the core zone of Bolgheri, which can hardly be surpassed in elegance and character.

      Compact and elegant Cabernet Franc with a fine tobacco note, ripe blackcurrant aromas, a little pepper and eucalyptus, and slightly earthy tones. Dense fruit and polished tannin on the palate, clear, rich finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "A rich ruby with a violet shimmer. Very catchy nose, opened with notes of cigar box and butter biscuits, then lots of dark berry fruit, some tobacco. Dense and smooth in the attack and course, spreads with great power, clearly elaborated fruit, present and spicy." Falstaff

      "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." Wine Spectator

      "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." James Suckling

      "The 2015 Bolgheri Superiore Dedicato A Walter is a pure expression of Cabernet Franc, offering mineral essences of sea shell, clay and round rocks. 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." Robert Parker

    About the winemakers
    Poggio al Tesoro
    Tuscany | Bolgheri
    Poggio al Tesoro

    Three kilometres from the Tyrrhenian Sea and about 45 kilometres south of Livorno lies the Tenuta Poggio al Tesoro. It borders directly on the Ornellaia winery. The 70 hectare farm in Bolgheri is run by the Allegrini family from the Verona area together with the Italian American and famous wine merchant Leonardo Lo Cascio. The estate manager and her partner have long been known for high-quality red wines in the Valpolicella region. Founded shortly after the turn of the millennium, the company in Bolgheri has consistently continued its upward trend in recent years and today represents the West Tuscan cultivation area very convincingly.

    The winery owns three plots of land, of which two in the Bolgheri territory make up the lion's share of the total area. Another area, about six hectares in size, is located in the neighbouring municipality of Bibbona. Because of the scattered cultivation zones - ranging from the sea to the more hilly inland areas - the soils differ. Coarse-grained reddish sand dominates in the locations particularly favoured by nature. The subsoil has high skeletal and clay content, is permeable and thus favours the drainage of water. In other zones the soils are heavy and very sandy. On the sandy and stony plots, Cabernet is the main cultivar, while the clayey and mineral-rich soils are mainly reserved for Merlot. The main vineyards are Via Bolgherese, Le Grottine, Le Sondraie and Valle di Cerbaia. Sites such as Le Sondraie are not only home to foreign red varieties, but also form an excellent base for excellent white grapes such as Vermentino.

    After considerable investments, the Tenuta Poggio al Tesoro is now in optimal conditions to produce wonderful crescents. The red wines of the house combine power and complexity and are precisely met. They are by no means lacking elegant features. Among the best wines are the IGT wine Dedicato a Walter made exclusively from Cabernet Franc and the Bolgheri Superiore Sondraia, a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. The noble wines of Poggio al Tesoro are regularly highly praised by the critics' guild.

    The fact that the winery is so important in the denomination is also due to the far-sightedness of Walter Allegrini from Valpolicella. The winegrower, who had died in the meantime, had always been involved in the family business and had made decisive improvements based on his own experiments. It is also responsible for the diversification of the terroir and the grape varieties. SUPERIORE.DE

    "The wines remain faithful to the ideas of their creators and demonstrate a precise style and enviable consistency. A safe tip at a high level in this overcrowded wine country."Gambero Rosso
