Allegrini is most recognized as one of the Veneto’s most famous and successful producers of Valpolicella and Amarone. Poggio al Tesoro is Allegrini’s new project in the Bolgheri region along the Mediterranean coastline of Tuscany. Poggio al Tesoro is now a thriving 70 hectare (173 acre) estate in prime Bolgheri wine-making territory where Bordeaux varietals rule, and the Corvina grape is never found.
40% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc, 10% Petit Verdot. 15 months in 225 liter French oak barriques from
Allier (30% new, 70% second use). 14% Alcohol.
“Fresh black currant and leafy flavors announce this juicy red. Wild herb, graphite and olive notes complete the picture as this unwinds on the lingering aftertaste. Very youthful, yet has all the components, including a dense structure. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Best from 2021 through 2033. 800 cases imported.” – 93 points, Wine Spectator
