Poggio al Tesoro Dedicato a Walter 2010

This is the winery’s most important wine, produced with 100% Cabernet Franc, and dedicated by Marilisa and Franco to their late brother Walter. Its richness is evident at first sight, confirmed on the nose by perfectly interwoven, profound aromas of black-berried fruit, pepper and balsamic hints of eucalyptus. The palate astonishes for its ability to sustain this imposing structure with a light tautness, making it both powerful and agile. Particularly suited for juicy, well-seasoned meat such as quail, lamb, pigeon, duck, hare and braised meats with red wine sauces. Perfect to accompany premium, full-flavoured cheeses. Serve at 16/18°C (64/68°F) in large wine glasses.

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...
