About Poggio al Tesoro
Bolgheri in Italy is one of the excellent and diverse regions in Italy with its exquisite landscapes and multi-coloured soil types. The terroir of this place consists of terraces, slopes, plains and the sea – all of which contribute to the exquisite quality of fruits used for the Poggio Al Tesoro brand of wines.
In Italy, Poggio Al Tesoro means “hill of treasure.” When Marilisa and her brother, Walter, established this brand, they wanted to create wines that truly justified the exceptional terroir and the strategic geographic location of the Bolgheri territory.
The expert winemaking team at Poggio Al Tesoro ensures that the wines created here are of top-quality. The power, complexity, elegance and depth found in these wines are one of the best in Italy. Today, this wine estate is spread across 70 hectares, and is an important landmark in the Bolgheri region.
The vineyards are located across these regions:
- Via Bolgherese – Spread across 7 hectares, this vineyard has 51% Cabernet Sauvignon and 49% Cabernet Franc varietals planted in it.
- Le Grottine – In this 7-hectare vineyard, you will find 45% Petit Verdot, 33% Cabernet Franc and 22% Cabernet Sauvignon varietals. While the sandy soils here were used to grow Petit Verdot, the stony soils are absolutely ideal for Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon.
