Poggio al Tesoro’s vineyards are located in four separate areas: Via Bolgherese, Chiesina di San Giuseppe, Le Sondraie, Valle di Cerbaia, and each one is characterised by significant pedoclimatic differences. The soil types, location, and exposure, combined with the selection of varietals planted, produce grapes with diverse characteristics and strong personalities. An agenda to plant the vineyards began in 2003 and new plots are still being added every year. Some of the most important vineyards in the Bolgheri area are found along the Strada Bolgherese, surrounded by majestic oaks and centuries-old olive trees. This part of the Appellation is known locally as Soprastrada and is considered, in terms of quality, the area where the best wines originate, boasting the greatest complexity and elegance.
Via Bolgherese - Soprastrada
The vineyard located on the east side (Soprastrada) of via Bolgherese is around seven hectares, three of which were planted in 1994. The plots closest to the forest in the remaining three hectares were planted in 2016.
Chiesina San Giuseppe - Soprastrada
This seven-hectare plot is located next to the Via Bolgherese vineyard. The presence of elements such as limestone and iron gives this soil a particular red colour, creating an ideal environment for the typical varietals grown in Bolgheri.
The largest plot of the estate with 50 hectares. The variety of soils in the Le Sondraie vineyard makes it possible to highlight very different grape varietals. The richness of minerals favours the production of rounded, harmonious wines, full of aromas.
Valle di Cerbaia - Bibbona
The Valle Cerbaia vineyard is located in the nearby municipality of Bibbona, right on the border with Bolgheri. The vineyard’s two plots are located at different altitudes.
