The largest plot of the estate with 50 hectares. The vines are grown partly using spurred cordon and partly Guyot, at a density of 7,936 vines per hectare. There are two types of soil: clay-like/sandy and sandy-pebbly. The variety of soils in the Le Sondraie vineyard makes it possible to highlight very different grape varietals. The ample presence of minerals favours the production of rounded, harmonious wines, full of aromas. In general, the variety of soils at Poggio al Tesoro allows for a vast diversity of combinations of grapes and microclimates and therefore the production of wines with great potential, innate elegance, and the addition of complexity and depth.

Vermentino Bolgheri D.O.C.
This is a 100% Bolgheri Vermentino. Its name expresses the close bond between this Mediterranean grape variety and the terroir of Bolgheri. This wine is a special favourite of Marilisa Allegrini. It embodies the colours, fragrances and flavours of these lands that lie so close to the sea.
Toscana Rosato IGT
Cassiopea revives the tradition of great rosés from this area, which are well-known for their extraordinary savoury hints and freshness. It has the colour and intensity of Bolgheri’s summer sunsets and bears the name of the constellation that lights up the skies above the estate of Poggio al Tesoro.
As its name suggests, this red wine is characterised by aromas of the Mediterranean scrub and the enticing scent of sea salt. Mediterra is a wine with great personality that expresses the intensity of the whole, intact fruit, kissed by sun and sea.
Bolgheri Rosso D.O.C.
The Seggio river is the largest watercourse in the municipality of Castagneto Carducci. This Bolgheri Rosso is produced with typical grape varieties, carefully harvested and vinified to ensure density and concentration but also to create a very fresh and easy-drinking style of wine.
Costa Toscana Bianco I.G.T.
This is a broad, intense and enveloping Viognier, which owes its refined but versatile character to skilful practices aimed at preserving its freshness and varietal aromas.
Bolgheri Superiore D.O.C.
This is Poggio al Tesoro’s flagship wine, produced with the best grapes from the parcels on the estate. This is a new kind of Supertuscan, successfully expressing the richness of an extraordinary territory, combining tension, complexity and great finesse.
Solosole Pagus Camilla
Vermentino Bolgheri D.O.C.
The Ancient Romans used the word ‘Pagus’ to identify a rural area that was of special agricultural value. This is still true today of Pagus Camilla, part of the vineyard called Le Sondraie, which lies near a natural oasis of the same name.
Petit Manseng Toscana I.G.T. Passito
Teos, the ancient Greek city dedicated to Dionysus, is the name of this sweet wine by Poggio al Tesoro. Teos has an enveloping sweetness that combines satisfying acidity with a deep golden hue, aromas of ripe fruit, jam and honey
