Poggio al Tesoro, Dedicato a Walter Bolgheri Superiore is a rich, dark wine, with a nose of black-berried fruit, pepper and hints of eucalyptus. The palate is impressive with an imposing structure, making it both powerful and refined.
This wine is produced from just two rows of vines covering three hectares in the Via Bolgherese vineyard. The vineyard faces west/south-west, situated just 56 metres above sea level, with coarse red sandstone and clay soil. The 24-year-old vines are spur-cordon trained, planted at 9,000 vines per hectare. The wine is named after Walter Allegrini, the late brother of Marilisa and Franco.
