"The 2016 Bolgheri Vermentino Solosole Pagus Camilla represents a special selection of grapes from the Fosse Camilla vineyard. The wine delivers great structure, bright citrus flavors and a spicy close. It sees four days of skin maceration—it is made almost like a red wine but at lower temperatures. This is a terrific wine that can pair with any seafood dish. Drink: 2019-2023. 93  points

The unstoppable Marilisa Allegrini is upping her attention and investments made to the Poggio al Tesoro estate that she purchased in 2001. During my visit to the winery, she told me that she simply "fell in love with Bolgheri," and her passion shows in the many personal touches. I know that future plans are ambitious, complete with a vineyard Inn. In terms of the vineyards, there are two main bodies over 70 hectares. The first parcel is Sondraia, located near the Camilla creek. Some 15 hectares are located in an area called "Soprastrada" because they fall east of the Bolgherese wine road. Two parcels—Felciaino and Le Grottine—are located here. Poggio al Tesoro has been working with the very talented consulting winemaker Luca D'Attoma since 2015."
