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


2008 was an excellent vintage, characterised by a mild spring and a rainy June which allowed the soil to store sufficient water reserves before a dry and breezy summer. Rainfall in mid-August prevented the grapes from overripening and they maintained a good acid content. The harvest took place in optimal climatic conditions, with hot, dry days and cool, breezy nights, which favoured ideal ripening indexes and maintained grape health, despite light rainfall that occurred towards the end of the harvest.
