Poggio al Tesoro and Bolgheri
in the Wine Spectator

The American magazine Wine Spectator has again written an article about Bolgheri and its wines. The cover story tells the story of one of the most prestigious wine-growing regions in the world.
"Bolgheri was love at first sight", says Marilisa Allegrini in the article penned by Bruce Sanderson, who also writes about the founding of Poggio al Tesoro, the Tuscan dream of Marilisa and her brother Walter.
Here is a brief excerpt from the article:
"As Marilisa Allegrini tells it, Bolgheri was love at first sight. "I came here in 1990 and fell in love with the landscape," she explains. "The Bolgheri road is a national monument. I started tasting Sassicaia and Ornellaia and found that the international varieties were perfectly suited to this Bolgheri terroir.
The streams transport soil to the valley, but also freshness," says Allegrini, whose Poggio al Tesoro vineyards are bisected by the Camilla and Macine streams. "They run from the Colline Metallifere to the sea, so are full of minerals." She has named her Vermentino Solosole Pagus Camilla in light of the saline influence the soils near the stream have on the wine".
