The Oddbins Take

Whilst producing exceptional wines, we hear the Allegrini family likes to kick back and listen to Sister Sledge, singing ‘We are family, I got Allegrini’s with me’ but hey! when you’re making well-structured, fruity Bolgarello Rosso with just a touch of spice and velvety soft tannins, you can sing just about anything and get away with it. So, why not pick up a bottle of this soulful Tuscan and sing along too. All together now, 'We drink Allegrini; you should try it so that you can see. We drink Allegrini, it’s great value for money!'

Poggio al Tesoro, producer of Bolgarello Vermentino, is the product of a joint venture between the Allegrini family of Verona and the American importer Leonardo Lo Cascio. They took over a 70 hectare estate in Bolgheri, Southern Tuscany, in 2001, and produced their first vintage the following year, under the supervision of Alberto Antonini.

Bolgheri is situated in Maremma, the southern, coastal part of Tuscany. Winemaking is a relatively recent development in the area as it was historically swampy, and malaria was a problem. Efforts towards viticulture were made in the 19th century, but the high mortality rate among the workers made progress impossible, and banditry was rife on account of the prevailing poverty. The swamps were drained and disease eradicated in the 20th century, and the development of quality wine was heralded by the arrival of ‘Super Tuscan’ Sassicaia in the 1970s. Winemaking has flourished since, and recent years have seen massive demand for land in the area.

The Sangiovese and Syrah grapes were harvested by hand and softly pressed using a pneumatic press in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. Fermentation lasted 12 days and malolactic fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks at the beginning of October following the harvest. The wine spent six months in French oak barriques.

This is an elegant wine with refined flavours of sour cherry and a robust, earthy finish.
