POGGIO AL TESORO
Poggio al Tesoro owes a great deal to the far-sightedness of Walter Allegrini, the wine-maker from Valpolicella who loved Bolgheri and was Allegrini’s enthusiastic forerunner in Tuscany.
Walter had always been personally involved in the viticultural aspects of the family business, and he intuitively grasped the importance of a territory whose special characteristics could be further experimented with and enhanced. When the time came to purchase the parcels of land that would constitute the current
Estate, he chose plots near the sea as well as others near the hills, aiming with considerable far-sightedness at a diversification in terroirs as well as grape varieties.
