"The winemaking team at Poggio al Tesoro has created a beautiful 2016 Bolgheri Superiore Sondraia, fully aware of the potential and profound elegance of this classic vintage. They have been able to harness that quality and express it in terms of the broad and far-reaching intensity of the bouquet. The wine peels back to reveal layer after layer of dark fruit, oak spice, chocolate and sweet tobacco. The wine shows a big personality today, but it is only a teenager. It should be fascinating to watch its future evolution over the next ten years. Some 44,000 bottles were produced. Drink: 2020-2038. 95 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."
