Bolgheri Superiore D.O.C.

Cabernet Sauvignon 65%, Merlot 25%, Cabernet Franc 10%


This is Poggio al Tesoro’s flagship wine, produced with the best grapes from the parcels on the estate. Since its creation with vintage 2003, it has garnered numerous awards from both the Italian and the international press. It has become a real Bolgheri classic in a very short space of time. This is a new kind of Supertuscan, successfully expressing the richness of an extraordinary territory, combining tension, complexity and great finesse.

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.
