Winemaker Notes

The wine proffers intense Mediterranean aromas, expressing a textured combination of aromatic herbs and citrus notes. The palate exhibits pristine, pure Vermentino, characterized by a satisfying savoriness, minerality and a structure that promises great longevity.

This is an ideal accompaniment to both sea and lake fish, and is excellent with prestigious raw fish dishes, Livorno-style mullet, Lake Garda sardines and various refined tempura specialities. It pairs perfectly at the end of a meal with Doppia Panna soft cheeses and Tuscan Pecorino.

James Suckling

This is very linear and energetic with lots of fresh fruit. Lemon and lime-rind undertones. Bright acidity. Medium body. Delicious finish. Plenty of fruit and freshness.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
To make the 2017 Bolgheri Vermentino Solosole, Poggio al Tesoro sourced Vermentino clones from Corsica, rather than Tuscany. The clone has large, loose clusters that require a lot of extra work in order to manage yields; the vineyard teams do a lot of fruit selection, sometimes berry for berry. This wine is made in stainless steel. They had experimented with oak but that was abandoned. It is fermented at very low temperatures and aged on the lees. The first vintage of this popular white wine was 2006.

Decanter

Delightful aromas of rosemary and thyme, with persistent lemon and lime flavours on a creamy, weighty palate. Well put together.

Yellow-peach, tropical-fruit and Mediterranean brush aromas follow through to the fresh, rounded palate along with a vein of saline and white grapefruit. It’s juicy and savory, with a bitteralmond finish.

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.

One of the most iconic Italian regions for wine, scenery and history, Tuscany is the world’s most important outpost for the Sangiovese grape. Ranging in style from fruity and simple to complex and age-worthy, Sangiovese makes up a significant percentage of plantings here, with the white Trebbiano Toscano coming in second.

Within Tuscany, many esteemed wines have their own respective sub-zones, including Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. The climate is Mediterranean and the topography consists mostly of picturesque rolling hills, scattered with vineyards.

Sangiovese at its simplest produces straightforward pizza-friendly wines with bright and juicy red fruit, but at its best it shows remarkable complexity and ageability. Top-quality Sangiovese-based wines can be expressive of a range of characteristics such as sour cherry, balsamic, dried herbs, leather, fresh earth, dried flowers, anise and tobacco. Brunello expresses well the particularities of vintage variations and is thus popular among collectors. Chianti is associated with tangy and food-friendly dry wines at various price points. A more recent phenomenon as of the 1970s is the “Super Tuscan”—a wine made from international grape varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Syrah, with or without Sangiovese. These are common in Tuscany’s coastal regions like Bolgheri, Val di Cornia, Carmignano and the island of Elba.

A fantastic, aromatic white grape that grows with great success in Sardinia, Tuscany and in lesser proportions on the island of Corsica. Somm Secret—Vermentino is thought to be genetically identical to Liguria’s Pigato grape and Peidmont’s Favorita. It comprises a large proportion of the whites in southern France where it is called Rolle.
