Poggio al Tesoro

Poggio al Tesoro wines
Bolgheri could only be the fulfillment of a dream: to take root in a famous territory from which great wines take shape and soul, capable of thrilling a cosmopolitan public. Ours was a slow approaching stage, where the knowledge of "hearsay" was transformed into sensations, curiosities, insights, wonder and, finally, into a solid and concrete project: Poggio al Tesoro. The exceptional value of the area, combined with our experience, has made possible the promise of Poggio al Tesoro: to offer wines with a strong identity, capable of expressing complexity and power, elegance and depth. Thus, in a few years and a lot of work, Poggio al Tesoro took shape and life, about 70 hectares of coveted Bolgheri land. The soils characterized by sands rich in skeleton have been chosen to cultivate vines that express concentration and power, such as Cabernet Sauvignon and in particular Cabernet Franc. In the clayey and mineral-rich soils, instead, vines such as Merlot are cultivated, in which elegance, aromas and harmony are sought. In the vineyard of Via Bolgherese, light processing is carried out in order to keep the soils always fresh and airy, while in Le Sondraie the temporary grassing (during the winter-spring months) with grasses essences is in use, to contain the vigor and to optimize the relationship between temperature and humidity.
