Winemaker Notes

Intense ruby-red in color, with complex aromas of ripe red fruit, balsamic spices and an elegant toasted note. On the palate, it is exotic, spicy, full-bodied and harmonious, with ripe and well-developed tannins and a persistent finish. Particularly suited for juicy, well-seasoned meat, either casseroled or braised, such as lamb, pigeon, duck, and hare with red wine sauces.

WE 95
Wine Enthusiast
This 100% Cabernet Franc is dedicated to the late brother of Marilisa Allegrini (co-owner of the 110-acre estate). This is a top-notch wine, with succulence, intensity and outstanding wood integration. The spice, chocolate, campfire and leather notes blend seamlessly. In the mouth, the wine is vibrant and long-lasting, with chocolate notes on the finish.
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2005 Dedicato a Walter (Cabernet Franc) is a wine that continues to impress. Varietal aromas emerge from the glass followed by a warm, generous expression of dark fruit as this beautiful, undeniably sexy wine flows from the glass. It offers lovely weight on the palate, with a variety of roasted coffee bean, spice and sweet herb overtones that emerge with air. From start to finish, the wine reveals superb balance and harmony. It is an outstanding effort in this vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2020.

Wine Spectator
This has loads of new wood, but the ripe, intense fruit easily handles it. Big and rich, showing a decadent, wild black forest fruit character on the palate. Opulent and beautiful. Cabernet Franc. Best after 2011

Poggio al Tesoro, Italy
Poggio al Tesoro Winery Video
One of the Allegrini Group properties, Poggio al Tesoro is located in the prestigious area of Bolgheri, a premiere appellation situated in the upper part of Tuscany’s Maremma, south of Pisa and just two miles from the Tyrrhenian Sea. The estate consists of 173 acres divided into three vineyard lots: via Bolgherese, Le Grottine, and Le Sondraie. The perfect quantity of sunlight throughout the year, the proximity to the sea, and the uniqueness of Bolgheri’s terroir are reflected in the style of Poggio al Tesoro’s wines; ripeness, muscular body, and richness are effortlessly combined with complexity and elegance.

The best clones of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot have been planted at Poggio al Tesoro for the precise purpose of crafting top-class wines with bold international style. Vermentino and Syrah, which produce wines of unmistakable personality in this area, complete the selection of varieties planted at Poggio al Tesoro.

Classic and quality-oriented grape-growing and winemaking methods are also employed at harvest and in the cellar: the grapes are hand-selected and harvested in multiple passes, then go through an additional selection process at the winery. Red varieties are fermented separately and then blended together for superior balance and a unique flavor profile. The climate and the terroir at Poggio al Tesoro allow for ideal concentration and perfect balance between structure, aromas and tannins, resulting in lush wines of outstanding class and finesse.

Legendary in Italy for its Renaissance art and striking landscape, Tuscany is also home to many of the country’s best red wines. Sangiovese reigns supreme here, as either the single varietal, or a dominant player, in almost all of Tuscany’s best.

A remarkable Chianti, named for its region of origin, will have a bright acidity, supple tannins and plenty of cherry fruit character. From the hills and valleys surrounding the medieval village of Montalcino, come the distinguished and age-worthy wines based on Brunello (Sangiovese). Earning global acclaim since the 1970s, the Tuscan Blends are composed solely of international grape varieties or a mix of international and Sangiovese. The wine called Vine Nobile di Montepulciano, composed of Prognolo Gentile (Sangiovese) and is recognized both for finesse and power.
