    • "Mediterra" Rosso Toscana IGT 2018

      “Mediterra” Rosso Toscana IGT 2018

      Mediterra with inviting aromas of bell pepper, red currant, sage and black pepper is round and harmonious on the palate with beautiful fruit and spice, a perfect food companion. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Bright ruby garnet. In the nose in the first attack slightly grassy, then after raspberries and gooseberries, white pepper, in the reverberation after black currant, needs some air to settle down. On the palate punchy and with clear fruit, stretches slightly spicy over the tongue, nice body." Falstaff

      "The 2018 Mediterra is Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot (in almost equal parts with just a little more emphasis on the richness of the Syrah). This is a versatile and very well priced Tuscan red that prizes softness, the richness of its mouthfeel and the ripeness of its blackberry and cherry aromas. Those warm fruit tones cede to mild spice, light tobacco and tilled earth. The wine is bright, bold and charming in thanks to its accessible style." Robert Parker

      "The 2018 Mediterra, Poggio al Tesoro’s entry-level wine, is terrific. Fruit, floral and enticing, this mid-weight offering has plenty to give. I would prefer to drink it over the next few years, while the flavors remain vibrant. A burst of red berry fruit, blood orange and spice lingers on the mid-weight finish." Vinous

      Pagus Cerbaia refers to a prime small plot of sedimentary soils. This is where the small quantities of Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon come from, which are partially fermented in amphorae and oak barrels after the harvest. Bottled in only a few hundred bottles, the "Selection Rosato" offers an intense floral aroma and beguiles the palate in a lively, cheerful way with a lingering spicy note and a wonderfully complex finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "This is very layered and beautiful with sliced-strawberry, lemon and peach character. Medium-bodied, it shows finesse and balance with beautiful fruit and focus. Crisp and dry. Fermented 50 per cent in barrel and 50 per cent in amphora." James Suckling

    • "Solosole Pagus Camilla" Vermentino Bolgheri DOC 2016

      “Solosole Pagus Camilla” Vermentino Bolgheri DOC 2016

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

      "The 2016 Vermentino Solosole Pagus Camilla is done in a slightly richer, oilier style than the straight Solosole. Apricot, chamomile and exotic floral notes make a strong first impression. Aging on the lees and a touch of skin contact brings out quite a bit of textural resonance to frame the wine beautifully." Vinous

      "The 2016 Bolgheri Vermentino Solosole Pagus Camilla represents a special selection of grapes from the Fosse Camilla vineyard. The wine delivers great structure, bright citrus flavors and a spicy close. It sees four days of skin maceration—it is made almost like a red wine but at lower temperatures. This is a terrific wine that can pair with any seafood dish." Robert Parker

      "This is the best vermentino I have ever had from Italy. Wonderful concentration and freshness with sliced, dried mango, pineapple and honey character. Full-bodied, layered and intense. Wonderful length." James Suckling

    • "Sondraia" Bolgheri Superiore DOC 2017

      “Sondraia” Bolgheri Superiore DOC 2017

      Sondraia - a Cabernet Sauvignon with small additions of Merlot and Cabernet Franc - has a bright colour and a clear, warm aroma of blueberry, raspberry, black cherry and undergrowth. Its intense flavour is powerful, characterised by fine-grained tannin and a seemingly endless finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Complex blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc: fruity, spicy nose of blackberries, dark chocolate and tea; tannins powdery, combining opulence, juiciness and density, finishing on plump notes of wild berries and sandalwood." Vinum

      "Deep dark garnet. Woody nose of dark berries, spices, rich cherries, then lots of dark chocolate, minimal malty aftertaste. Opens up dense and rich on the palate, warm-hearted with rich melting, well-integrated wood tannin, still young, will be at its best in a few years." Falstaff

      "The wine opens to an inky dark appearance with dried blackberry and plum and plenty of spice and smoke to flesh it out. Like other Bolgheri wines from this vintage, the tannins (both the fruit and the oak tannins, but mostly the fruit) are very powerful and tight." Robert Parker

      "This shows depth and richness with chewy tannins and lots of fruit and flavor. Full-bodied and structured." James Suckling

      "The 2017 Sondraia is a rich, ample wine. Succulent black cherry, plum, mocha, licorice and spice all build as this creamy, bold Bolgheri red shows off its considerable charms. A whole range of floral and savory top notes from the Cabernets adds aromatic presence as well as notable complexity." Vinous

      "A hint of bell pepper, wild rosemary and oak spice accent the core of black currant and olive flavors in this beefy red. Iron and tobacco notes chime in as this builds to a long, gripping finish. All of the components are there, this just needs a little aging, or decanting, to come together." Wine Spectator

      "Sondraia has increased in quality (and price). In 2017 it has an earthy minerality with spice complexity of clove, bark and walnut husk, supporting vibrant, ripe fruit. The mid-palate is very extracted yet velvety, leading to a warming finish." Decanter

      “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 2016

      “Dedicato a Walter” Bolgheri Superiore DOC 2016

      Marilisa and Franco Allegrini dedicated this single-varietal Cabernet Franc from their own vineyards on Via Bolgherese to their eldest brother Walter, who died in 2003. The 2015 vintage marked the beginning of an even more radical focus on the terroir and the quality of the grapes. Since then, a third fewer bottles have been filled each year, and the result is now a Bolgheri Superiore from their own grapes from the core zone of Bolgheri, which can hardly be surpassed in elegance and character. Compact and elegant Cabernet Franc with fine tobacco notes, ripe blackcurrant aromas, some pepper and eucalyptus, plus slightly earthy tones. Dense fruit and polished tannin on the palate, clear, rich final. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Cabernet Franc in purezza from a 7-hectare vineyard: a potpourri of blackberries, spices and pepper is beguiling from the first sniff; elegant yet full of character with precise tannins, the finish is long and extremely complex. Put it in the cellar for the time being, then it will be even more fun." Vinum

      "This red is vibrant and tightly woven, featuring black currant, blackberry, wild herb, iron and spice flavors. The oak is well integrated, as are the powdery tannins. The finish is long and focused." Wine Spectator

      "A pretty and firm wine with blackberry and cherry character. Full body, firm and chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. Attractive and exciting. Love the tannin structure. 100% cabernet franc." James Suckling

      "Poggio al Tesoro's 2016 Dedicato a Walter exudes richness and power in all of its dimensions. Blackberry jam, chocolate, lavender, licorice and menthol all flesh out in an ample, potent wine that shows all the potential of Franc in Tuscany's Maremma. I would give the 2016 another year or so in bottle, as the tannins are a bit imposing at this stage." Vinous

      "This is one of the first monovarietal expressions of Cabernet Franc to shine the spotlight on the grape and its exciting performance in Bolgheri. The Poggio al Tesoro 2016 Bolgheri Superiore Dedicato A Walter opens to a darkly saturated and impenetrable appearance. The bouquet is heavily enriched with black fruit, burnt ember, mesquite and campfire ash. The oak is quite evident at this stage, but it should continue to shed and sand away with time. At its core, the wine is packed with black fruit, and you also get delicate notes of rosemary oil, pressed lavender and scorched earth." Robert Parker

    About the winemakersPoggio al TesoroTuscany | 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
