Bolgheri Superiore D.O.C.

Cabernet Franc 100%


This is one of the rare 100% Cabernet Francs from Bolgheri and indeed from Italy, dedicated by Marilisa Allegrini to her brother Walter. It has become the jewel in Poggio al Tesoro’s crown. In Bolgheri’s microclimate and in the stony soils of the Via Bolgherese vineyard, situated in the prestigious area known as Soprastrada, this grape variety – which is generally used to give a touch of elegance to Bordeaux wines – finds an ideal habitat in which to express itself in an absolutely independent and original fashion.

Climate Trend


The 2006 vintage is one of the most important in Bolgheri. The weather throughout the seasons was very even and there was a warm and sunny spring after a rather harsh and rainy winter. However, a delay in the vine’s budding was not averted by the warm spring. The vegetative development proceeded regularly, guaranteeing the formation of proper leaf coverage during the flowering period, which was slightly delayed in comparison to the average. The bud set was good, thanks to minimal rainfall in June and July, while the absence of water in August did not jeopardise optimal veraison. Fortunately, temperatures were never exceptionally high, which allowed for the conservation of water reserves which were necessary for optimal aromatic development and productive potential. The phenological phases followed one another with consistency during the summer. The harvest began towards the end of September and the grapes were perfectly healthy, well-concentrated, and had excellent aromatic maturation.
