Poggio al Tesoro Solosole Vermentino

Poggio al Tesoro Solosole Vermentino is a medium body Vermentino from Bolgheri, with refreshing acidity, minerality and subtle stone fruit notes. This wine is elegant and well structured, with great ageing potential.

Widely considered to be 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 with their US importer, Leonardo Lo Cascio.

The first vineyard they bought is next door to Ornellaia and was previously rented by them. Alberto Antonini was consultant here until 2009 when Nicola Biasi took over.

Bolgheri has a the perfect climate for growing grapes, being both warm and dry and close to the coast for refreshring acidity. Plantings on the Estate began in 2003 and the choice of varietals and rootstocks was strongly influenced by the soil and environmental conditions of the various vineyard sites at Poggio al Tesoro.

Soils here are well drained and composed of clay and sandy silt with a high presence of magnesium and iron. The vines are seven years old, spur cordon trained with a very high density of planting.

Its winemaking zone is made up of sloping coastal vineyards at the foot of the hills between the town of Bolgheri, after which this DOC is named, and the southern part of Castagneto.

Back in the 1960s the Tuscan wine industry was in need of a shake-up, and Bolgheri became one of the avante-garde areas that helped bring this region back to life.

One of the tactics was to start a new trend of non-DOC wines, and in 1968 an innovative style of wine was named the Super Tuscan.

The flagship ‘Super Tuscan’ wine was Sassicaia – a Bordeaux-style red created from vines often (erroneously) reported to have come from Chateau Lafite-Rothschild in Bordeaux.

Sassicaia returned Bolgheri and Tuscany into the limelight. Sassicaia was also the first and only Italian wine to be honored with its own single-estate classification: thus in 1994, Bolgheri and Bolgheri Sassicaia DOC were born.
