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 2012 vintage began with a cold and relatively rainy spring. Excessive rainfall can put even the most experienced winemaker in difficulty during the period when vegetative growth is rapid and important. Careful management of the vineyard allowed us to keep the quality of the grapes and the health of the vines intact. In this area, known for early crops, there was no shortage of spring frosts which contributed to lower production yields. Fortunately, the hot and dry summer did not bring scorching temperatures with it, as it would certainly have compromised the quality of the vines and the grapes. Accurate emergency irrigation made it possible to keep all the vineyards dynamic and make it to September without any water stress. A temperature drop and some light rainfall at the beginning of September perfected the vintage, resulting in fine and elegant wines.
