One of the most exciting estates to have emerged from Italy in recent years, Poggio al Tesoro is a 70 hectare property in Bolgheri acquired in 2001 by the Allegrini family. The first vineyard they bought is next door to Ornellaia and was previously rented by the Super Tuscan powerhouse. This radiant straw yellow wine impresses with aromas of acacia blossom, yellow plums and subtle grapefruit. Medium bodied, the palate is refined, succulent and slightly waxy with refreshing acidity and delicate apricot on the finish.
We look forward to visiting there on the Tuscan Tour du Vin in September 2017.
