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


2011 was a year to remember from a viticultural point of view because of peculiar climatic conditions: a mild spring, well-balanced rainfall in March/April, frequent rainfall in June/July, and a cool summer with pleasant daytime temperatures until almost mid-August. Despite a temperature increase during the second half of August, high-quality grapes were harvested in perfect health with very intense colours and aromas. The harvest began a few days early because of the hot, dry days. However, that did not compromise the phenolic ripening of the grapes and the subsequent temperature drop was ideal for maintaining aromas and acidity, fundamental to producing elegant, balanced, and classy wines.
