Poggio al Tesoro Dedicato a Walter 2005

Intense ruby-red in color, with complex aromas of ripe red fruit, balsamic spices and an elegant toasted note.

Particularly suited for juicy, well-seasoned meat, either casseroled or braised, such as lamb, pigeon, duck, and hare with red wine sauces.

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" 91 Pts.

Robert Parker, The 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." 92 Pts.

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." 95 Pts.

Poggio al Tesoro owes a great deal to the far-sightedness of Walter Allegrini, the wine-maker from Valpolicella who loved Bolgheri and was Allegrini’s enthusiastic forerunner in Tuscany. Walter had always been personally involved in the viticultural aspects of the family business, and he intuitively...
